MDS Tuesday: Pool Party Birthday Invitation

My daughter's birthday party is this weekend and of course I had to get on My Digital Studio to create the perfect birthday invitation.

Here's what I came up with:

The best thing ever is hearing you daughter say: "THAT'S AWESOME MOM!!!" 

The ribbon I used is actually retired, and I had bought it when it was in the CLEARANCE RACK…it's amazing the gems of products you can pick up there at GREAT prices! Have you headed over to see all the great prices there lately? Don't forget to also pick up any RETIRING PRODUCTS  you may want since you only have 2 more days to get them!


To create this invitation, I started with a black background on an 8.5×11, then added a circle punch, sized it to .75 and coloured it white. I copied and pasted it until I had a line of them and then copied the whole line and pasted that until I filled the whole sheet. Once I finished my background paper, I locked all the page elements so they wouldn't move. Make sense?

I then added a square punch, sized it to 4.2" x 4" and filled it with Bashful Blue lg. Polka Dot Designer Series Paper. I then placed it where I wanted it and changed the opacity to 80%.

Fonts used: CK Alis Hand & CK Easy Goin'

Designer Kit: Walk in the Park  for the flower

I created one invitation, grouped it (highlight all elements & go to "Arrange" and click on "Group"). You can then copy and paste it 3 more times on your page.

Here's what the sheet looked like when I was finished:

I then printed it on Whisper White cardstock, cut it out in 4 and matted it on our new Midnight Muse In color cardstock.
