Birthday Invites

I took a break from doing my Stampin' Out Alzheimer's samples today to make some birthday party invites for my best friend's little boy, Balin, who is turning 2 next month. You can see them below. (The sample posted obviously doesn't contain the real address). I used Brilliant Blue, Wild Wasabi, Bashful Blue and Whisper White CS as well as Jersey Shore DP. I printed the invitation wording on Whisper White CS, used my ticket corner punch on the top corners, added a little "grass" to the bottom and attached to Wil Wasabi. The pull-tab is made from a 1 1/4 inch circle punch folded in half and attached with a large eyelet andsome striped Pumpking Pie grosgrain ribbon. I stamped the images from Wild About You in Pumpkin Pie and Bashful Blue, cut them out and attached them to the front of the pocket. The DP is held on with 2 silver brads.
The actual invitation slides out of the pocket...

Hope you like them! I'll also be making thank you cards, decorations and party favors to match, so be watching for those in the next few weeks. Thanks!

Those are adorable! Do you mind giving the dimensions for your pieces of the card? I'd love to make some pocket cards like that, but I always seem to mess up the dimensions.
