Party Invitations

Hey there! My friend's little guy is turning two in October, and she asked me to make the invitations for his birthday party! They're having the party at a farm/orchard with lots of super fun activities including a hay bale maze, tractor-pulled wagon rides, apple picking, visits with the farm animals, etc.

Here's the final product:

I used LOTS of ADORABLE DeNami Design stamps (see supply list at the end of this post) to create the little scene and used Harold's ABCs from Lawn Fawn to stamp out the animal sounds! As you can see, the outside says, "oink, baa, neigh, moo" and on the inside it says, "Jonathan is turning TWO!" followed by all of the party details! Just a FUN little rhyme I made up especially for Jonathan!

I stamped the barns once on each invitation itself and again on a separate sheet of white cardstock. I colored the barns on the separate sheet, cut them out, cut/scored the barn doors and then adhered them over the barn images stamped on the invitations. This way, the door on the barn opens to reveal a little sheep hiding in there!

I made 16 of these, and it was a total blast!!! My friend is absolutely thrilled with the invitations, and I hope you like them too!

Thanks for stopping by!
