That was the instruction for the guests invited to my recent birthday celebration when they opened their very sparkly invitation from me.
I wanted to make an impression with my birthday invitations this year and decided to ‘recycle’ a template I had in my stash that is still very very very popular in the Tutorial Store, my High Heel Shoe card. However I did do a little tweaking to the pattern to create the shoe for the front of the invitations. My shoe was cut from Melon Mambo cardstock then embossed with a mixture of pink glitter and clear embossing powder … soooo sparkly! I added some stars stamped in silver ink from the High Five stamp set along with embossing the ‘Party Time!’ greeting in Melon Mambo embossing powder.
This card had a perforated pulled tab at the bottom and when the card was opened …
there was a confetti flinger mechanism inside, filled with silver and pink confetti. I made the insides of my invites with MDS and loved how easy they were to design and of course were perfectly coordinated with the rest of my card.
I also did the decorations for my party and these little pots of origami flowers where some of the things I had prepared for the room. Of course all matching in with my black, pink and silver theme.
They looked so lovely bunched together and added a night touch of bling to the room. I also made a photo booth for the evening which was loads of fun and had an amazing cake made by Amber at The Cake Garden which also featured some of my origami flowers.
The silver ‘T’ on top of the cake is obviously for me, ‘T’ but you may be wondering what the ‘Zr’ on the front is all about … well I am a science girl at heart and if you look up the atomic number of zirconium it will all make sense!
