An invitation to a get together is the first impression your guests will have of the event. An invite that looks slapped together does not give a promising first impression. But, you don't have to spend a fortune on the invites.
The above invitation was put together for a family barbeque. It was simple and inexpensive. By layering dramatic green tones of scrapbook paper that I found on clearance, I created a striking background for the simple glitter foam flower stickers. A $1 "You're Invited" stamp on plain white paper and colored with colored pencils completes the card. It is simple, fun and, best of all, inexpensive. Guests loved them and it only took a couple of hours to make a dozen of them!
