Sweet 16 party invitations



My daughter is turning 16 next week and I designed these invitations for her birthday party. I made a sample one without disclosing personal information to post here to show. My inspiration came from Cambria's cute Halloween card using a similar layout.
  • Paper: Close to Cocoa, Whisper White, Loves Me Designer Paper by Stampin' Up!
  • Ink: Computer generated
  • Tools/Accessories: Round Tab Punch, 1-inch, 1 1/4-inch, and Scallop Circle Punches, Foof-a-La brand clear Bag-O-Buttons from Archiver's, Turquoise Gingham Ribbon sent to me from Keri in Missouri, white nylon twine from Alberton's

Your invites look awesome. I see you got a scallop circle punch that worked. Lucky girl!!! My first order and the replacements were duds. Can't wait to get one that works. The scallop circle is so versatile. Have a great weekend.

Woo-hoo! These are awesome!

Are you sure you are old enough to have a 16 year old daughter? I don't believe it!

I hope it's a fabulous turn out for her!

Beate, I am SO glad my scallop circle punch worked, as I understand there have been several that didn't. I do feel lucky!
