Start planning your party early and check those invitations off your to-do list!
To begin making this invitation, start by cutting your blue cardstock in half to a size of 5-1/2″x 8-1/2″.
Next, create a text layout using any printshop or Word program on your computer. Make the text interesting and beautiful by combining different fonts. You may also want to change the font colors…I used a medium shade of gray on this one because black was too bold. Once you have a text layout complete, print it out on the white cardstock and cut it to a size of 5″x 8″.
Next, using your snowflake punch, punch a row of snowflakes along the bottom of the white cardstock.
Now, using any type of liquid glue (I used Elmer’s), draw lines near the top of the white cardstock. Keep them thin so they look “piece-y”. This needs to be a someone quick process because you’ll find that the glue develops a drying film on the top quite soon.
Next, sprinkle the glitter on top of the glue lines. Use a generous amount so that all the glue is covered. Wait a couple of minutes before you shake the excess glitter off the paper, otherwise your glue may try to run. You’ll be able to re-use all the extra glitter if you put it back in the shaker after you shake off your paper.
After the glue is completely dry, attach the white cardstock to the blue cardstock using mounting squares.
That’s it! Your guests are sure to love receiving this beautiful invitation to the amazing party you’re planning! This design would also work great for a New Year’s Eve party!
