Christmas party invitations


Since my pumpkin party for my Sunday School class was a success, 
I thought I'd have another party next month for Christmas.

I decided to make my invitations using the Festive Friday Final Challenge of 2013, which let us choose a previous challenge from this past year. I chose this one:


I made the cards very similar, but switched the colours up slightly for boys/girls.
Here's the boys' card:


I used my new Mama Elephant dies that I got in the mail yesterday -- aren't they fabulous?
I stamped the sentiment and gingerbread man from PTI's Scenti-mentals set.
Then, I masked him off and stamped the evergreen boughs from Wplus9's Merry & Bright 
and added some berries from Wplus9's Fresh Cut Florals.

And here's the girls' version:


I'm also linking this up to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes 


Thanks for looking!
