PWC264 - Invitations

It's Paper Pretties challenge time again.  PWC264 is "Invitations".  If you visited my Paper Pretties post last week you know I did an invitation then too.  Well, I am a complete airhead and had my weeks mixed up but fortunately I saw the Paper Pretties blog post that was for summer fun.  I quickly went into edit mode and changed all the references to the challenge.  Fortunately a party is fun, so the card I made wasn't so off the wall and I could make it work for last week's challenge and I got to make another invitation for this week's challenge.  

This invitation is supposed to be reminiscent of the cutesy little Valentine's day cards little girls like to give out.   I'm sure a little girl would love to give these out to her friends. 
Making this invitation is easy.  First I stamped, colored and cut out the valentine's cupcake from the Holiday Sweets I set.  There's also a Holiday Sweets II set.  Between the two stamp sets there are eight different cupcakes from which you can choose.  Next I cut two of the largest cupcake from the Spellbinder's cupcake dies.  The patterned papers are from October Afternoon's "Cakewalk".  I traced the cut out die onto the back of the patterned paper and cut it out about a quarter of an inch from the line and then affixed it to the card stock.  The "Cakewalk" package has two of each paper.  One of the papers has four tiny invitations included on it.  I used one of those blocks for the inside.  Of course if you don't have that paper  you can make up an inside page on your computer.   Lastly I used a heart brad to hold the two pieces together.  

If you're having an adult party you could use the Holidays Cheers I or Holiday Cheers II to make your invitation.  

Here's the deets:
stamp - Paper Pretties "Holiday Sweets I"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black"
paper - Bazzill "Petunia" card stock; October Afternoon "Cakewalk" patterned paper
miscellaneous - copics; brad; Viva Glitter liner "Holo Iridescent"
