BBQ Invitations


Hello again! I'm so excited to share with you the set of barbeque invitations I made a couple of weeks ago. The town where I work held a street fair last weekend, and the teachers association had a table where they were raffling off summer-themed baskets, so I told my boss (who was making the basket for our school) that I would donate a set of handmade invitations. Yay! :D I am SO pleased with the results, especially since I forgot how many BBQ-themed items I had in my stash!

I've had the red plaid paper by DCWV forever- it came in an assortment of DCWV stuff, and I never knew what to do with it. I thought it would be perfect for this occassion- it gives that picnic-y summertime feel, plus I used up two sheets! Yesss. :) I used some red scraps from the baby shower invitations and black paper that I bought from the dollor store (a journal made for those milky gel pens). I used a variety of stamps on these invitations:

hot dog and hamburger: JanLynn (LOVE this set!)
grill: Rubber Soul
"you're invited": Creative Cafe
"BBQ": Studio G

I also added some mustard yellow ribbon (finished up the spool, by the way!) and a ribbon slider cut out with my Cuttlebug, on top of which I used some silver ink (Color Box) to stamp the "BBQ" sentiment. I did the same thing with the "you're invited" sentiment, on top of the Stampin' Up! tab punched piece.

I was having so much fun with my invites that I thought it would be swell to decorate the inside of the card as well. I used up another (and my last!) sheet of the red plaid paper, added the "Please Join Us" image (also from Rubber Soul) to some more black paper, and added a couple of ants! The ants came from a swap, and I think they were the perfect touch to that open area. I think if I didn't decorate the inside of the card, it would look too white and boring :)

To package the inviations, I bought some clear bags at Michael's. I thought there were going to have a sticky strip on the back so I could seal them, but they didn't, so I had to resort to making a fun topper. I used some blue grid paper by Colorbok (Friend Forest collection), a ribbon from Target, and my new EK Success border punch/embosser (I can't get enough of this punch!) on another red scrap. I used a giant address label to print the information and voila! A handmade package of BBQ invitations! :D

I'm so happy with the way these turned out- I hope whoever won the basket enjoys them! Thanks for checking in, I hope you have a fabulous Saturday! :D

Weather is a set of all the phenomena occurring in a given atmosphere at a given time. Most weather phenomena occur in the troposphere, just below the stratosphere. Weather refers, generally, to day-to-day temperature and precipitation activity, whereas climate is the term for the average atmospheric conditions over longer periods of time. When used without qualification, "weather" is understood to be the weather of Earth.
