Poker Party Invitations Set

I have a friend who loves to play poker.  She also taught me how to play Texas Hold 'Em, when she invited me to one of her poker parties.  I enjoyed my first try at poker, and the succeeding poker nights as well.

So when I saw these invitations at Big Lots, I thought of my friend right away.  They would be perfect for one or two poker parties.

The first thing that came to mind is the EK Success edge punch that I bought on clearance a long time ago.  I also get to use a lot of my red and black cardstock scraps. 

So I made two batches of invitations.  For the first set, I didn't touch the card, but I added a border on the envelopes.

And for the second set, I covered the queen on the cards with layered punched borders.

And then, I put the two sets of invitations in a cardstock pouch.  I just used brads and twine for closure.

Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  leftovers
tools:  EK Success edge punch
embellishments:  brads
adhesive:  Scotch
misc.:  Hallmark invitation cards set, twine

 'Til next blog!
