Goin' To The Movies!

A customer of mine asked me to design birthday party invitations, favors and thank you notes for her daughter's upcoming 10th birthday. They are going to the movies with a bunch of her girlfriends. I used this punch to come up with the borders on the sides to resemble a film strip.

I made 2 samples for her to review. One simple and one a bit more fluffy. I used my Cricut to cut out the star shapes. (that thing ROCKS!) I cut 20 stars in a matter of about 45 seconds. Amazing. And it's so much easier for my hands than using a tough punch on heavy, silver cardstock!! The birthday girls favorite color is hot pink so on the more simple of the two I used SU! pixie pink, whisper white and basic black. On the other sample, I used SU! pretty in pink with the same complimentary colors along with some pink, leopard paper from Me&My Big Ideas.

We'll see which one she likes best!! I'll then get to designing the favors and thank you notes.

I hope that everyone is having a very creative beginning of the week!
