Party invitations

Every year, my husband asks me to make party invitations for his work group. We always invite them over for dinner/drinks at Christmas time to thank them for the work they've done throughout the year. Everyone brings a "white elephant gift" and we play that exchange game after dinner. I've been so busy that I'm just now getting around to doing them.

I was browsing Kristina Werner's Blog today and saw a cute card she made...perfect! I could convert it into my invitation! Hers was a round card with a bow at the top...I converted mine into a paper ornament by adding the Round Tab punch at the top and tying gold cord into a bow! I think they turned out great...can't wait until my hubby hand delivers them tomorrow to everyone!

This is the outside of the first one I did. The inside has two round layered white circles. The bottom circle holds the invite, the top circle the directions and info about the white elephant exchange.

Hmmm, I just realized there is NO stamping on this anywhere! lol! But, I love the Wintergreen Double Sided Designer Paper from Stampin' Up! The letters were cut with my Cricut and the George cartridge. My bow isn't showing up well, either...sorry!

C/S: Certainly Celery, Always Artichoke, Whisper White, Wintergreen DSP

Other: Round Tab punch, Gold stretch cord, Round Coluzzle

Very clever, Connie--loved how you used the tab at the top. We just sent out our invitations, too, but I took the easy way out (a Word dcoument sent as an attachment to an email) since Steve was sending invites to over 100 people!
