In the Philippines, the 18th birthday of a girl is often celebrated, as she supposedly enters womanhood.  Yesterday was my niece's 18th birthday, and like most, she had a big party with family, relatives and friends.  I couldn't be there but as my gift to her, I made her party invitations.  I have mentioned this weeks ago that her party theme was the Alice in Wonderland movie with the colors red and black. 

This was the final design.  I made 80 of these:

Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  Recollections, The Paper Company, Wassau
image/sentiment:  Verve
ink:  Ranger, Tsukineko
tools:  Cuttlebug embossing folder, Martha Stewart corner punch, EK Success edge punch, Spellbinders
embellishments:  rhinestone
misc.:  Ranger embossing powder, Shimmer Spritz
adhesive:  Scotch, Glossy Accents, Zots mounting tape

I just concentrated on the card front, and left the inside blank so they can put the details of the party.  I'm sorry I missed the big event, but at least my presence was there even through the invitations.

'Til next blog!
