Completed pirate invitations are in the mail!

Whew! Finally got the invites completed over the holiday weekend and off in the mail today!. I though I'd just share a couple of snapshots of how they turned out...

Here's the front. I made a faux layered circle from the background and made a "mat" with some shadow to help save on materials, time, and most of all...postage! I broke out the distress inks and the MM edge distressing tool...such fun!

Here's the straight ahead view of the inside. It was a bit of a challenge to fit all the info in the small strips to the side...but it worked!

An angled view so you can see the pop-up mechanism...

And of course...the back...where I could add the info I forgot, er, couldn't fit, in the inside!

I even added a pirate/crossed swords as a "seal" to the back of the envelopes when I printed the addresses. Thanks for looking!


  1. Those turned out so well. I love it.

  2. These are awesome. I can see alot of work went into these.

  4. What a great invitation! I'm sure everyone will be impressed with them. I know I am! Great job and thanks for sharing this with us.

  5. This is adorable, and I can not believe you found that pool.


Hi! I'd love to hear from you, so...leave me a message!
