Exploring Cricut Guest Designer

Welcome! I'm so excited to be a guest designer at Exploring Cricut. Today I'm going to share the birthday invitations I ended up making for my daughter's party this past weekend.
The event was Snow White themed so the color scheme was given; red, yellow and blue. I used Jack Frost Glimmer Mist to color the flower and that fun, frilly ribbon from Michael's was a great find. All of the Snow White stickers came from a coloring book so all the invitations were slightly different.
I also decorated the inside of the invitation. The mirror is reflective paper I found in the art section at Michael's. It came in a giant sheet that I had to cut down to size. It's thick paper so I used my Gypsy to have it cut multiple times. I used the black portion that was cut out from the frame as my mat on the front of the card.
The wording of the invitation started out:
Mirror, mirror on the wall
look who's turning four this fall
it then invited everyone to the enchanted forest, our house. And wouldn't you know, even giving people three options to RSVP (call, text, email) we still had to call over half the invited guests. That's so frustrating!
