12 Days of Christmas - Day One - Party Invitations

Good Morning Dear friends and Happy December!! It's my favorite time of the year and that means it's time to share my version of The Twelve Days of Christmas with you once again!   Today's project is a fast and cute little party invitation.  My invitation is for a baby shower, but you can use this idea for any type of party you may have during the holidays.  I really got out of my box with this baby shower invitation, but why not, it's the holidays and anything goes!!

1.  Cut a card base.  I used Papertrey Ink's Card Base-ics #1 die and Pure Poppy Cardstock.  This die is my favorite for invitations!!
2.  Design your invitation.  I used the popular chalkboard background for this invitation.  I think it will be a lot of fun to carry on the chalkboard theme into the party decorations as well.
Click onto the image and save to your computer.  Embellish and print as desired.  The fonts I used for this card were Branboll, Connie and WW Flakes which were all downloaded free of charge from DaFont.
3. Trim your printed panel and layer it onto a slightly larger white cardstock panel and then onto a printed cardstock panel.  I just love the diagonal stripes used on this invitation.
4.  Embellish as desired.  I added a pretty little snowflake, arrow and red jewel.

Such a quick and easy way to invite your guests.  I challenge you to get out of your box and create something different and fun for the holidays!!

Thank you for joining me once again for The Twelve Days of Chistmas!!
Have a wonderful day,
