So I've started, finally. I decided on a theme of Mickey Mouse. This was an easy decision. Ever since our trip to Disney World my son has been over-the-moon with Mickey (even though he was terrified of the actual mouse).
Today I'm sharing the invitations and thank you notes I made for the party.
Let me take you on the creative process for my invitation. I looked on Pinterest and Google and was really only seeing one kind of hand-made card. So I turned to my Mickey and Friends handbook and a light just went off when I saw the pants cut.
As you can see the pants have a red, yellow and black layer. I ignored the yellow layer all together so to get my buttons I had to cut the red layer twice (4.18"). I used my gypsy to hide the cuts I needed and save paper.
When assembling the invitation I only applied adhesive just to the outside edge, not the top, creating a pocket. The insert measures 2.75"x4.75". I felt the invitation was missing a little something so I cut and added the Mickey ears (3.5").
I like to make my Thank You notes at the same time as my invitations so I can get them out as soon as the party is over.
My thank you cards are really simple. I used Mickey Font and my gypsy to weld the letters together.
Hand - 1.25"
Ears - 1.97" (I used my gypsy to get the proportions right)
Thank You - 3.09"
Mat - 4.75"x3.75"
Card - 5.25"x4"
I hope you enjoyed my cards. Stop back tomorrow when I'll be sharing a fun party decoration with you.
