DINNER INVITATIONS for CHA

Greetings everyone … This is ♥Carol♥, I hope you are all having a great week, and for those that are feeling the effects of the winter weather, I hope you are staying safe and warm. Thanx for visiting me here in My Little Creation Corner.

I was honored to be invited to make samples for the 2010 Winter CHA Craft Super Show in Anaheim, California.  Today I’d like to share those dinner invitation cards with you. These cards were on display at the Provo Craft/Cuttlebug area at the 2010 Winter CHA Craft Super Show in Anaheim, California.  Both cards were made to feature the Cuttlebug, the Cricut Expressions and Cosmo Cricket, Farmers Market Patterned Papers (which BTW is an excellent quality double-sided printed paper). My assignment was to make Dinner invitation samples.

The first card is a dinner invitation with a formal or informal theme:

The Card Front:

The Card Center:





The verse is my own and reads:

Things are ready
We’ve set your plate
We’re going to have
A time that’s great

So set your clock
And mark the date
You’re expected
Don’t be late

Supplies Used are as follows:

Cricut Cartridges From My Kitchen and Sentimentals
Cuttlebug embossing folder Swiss Dots
Cosmo Cricket, Farmers Market patterned paper
Misc. Solid colored card stock and Foil Card stock
Misc. Gold Ribbon and pre-made bow
Brown Ink
Adhesives: Glue Glider Pro, glue dots, Zig 2-way fine tip glue pen and dimensionals


The Second card is for an informal Barbeque Dinner

The inside verse is my own and reads:

We’re going to have a Barbeque
A feast for everyone
With lots of food and fun to share
Sure hope that you will come


The supplies used on this card are as follows:

Cricut Cartridges From My Kitchen
Cuttlebug embossing folder Swiss Dots
Cosmo Cricket, Farmers Market patterned paper
Misc. Solid colored card stock and Foil Card stock
Yellow Satin Ribbon
Black and White Signo UniBall gel pens
Martha Stewart Boarder Punch
Adhesives: Glue Glider Pro, glue dots, Zig 2-way fine tip glue pen and dimensionals


Just a side note: although I did receive 3 sheets of patterned papers from the Cosmo Cricket Farmers Market line, which were used to make these cards, I did not receive any additional papers for my own personal use, nor was I paid to make these samples. All other products used, including solid colored papers and foils, ribbons, bows, boarder punches, markers, Cricut Cartridges, Cuttlebug embossing folders, etc., were my own and purchased by me.

I invite you to stop by the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog to see additional fabulous projects made by other incredibly talented designers on display at the 2010 Winter CHA Craft Super Show.
I hope you enjoy these invitational cards as much as I did making them and sharing them with you … feel free to leave comments, I would love to hear what you think. As always, thank you for visiting me here at my Little Creation Corner. HAPPY CRAFTING EVERYONE!

Hugz,
♥Carol♥
