Remote Invites -

Hello & Happy Monday my fellow Crafting Peeps!
I hope you all enjoyed your weekend! I found time to
sit down and craft! That always makes for a Great Weekend!

As you well know.... I have a son who has a Birthday
the end of this week - I made him the Ninja card
that can be found RIGHT HERE!!!

 I also have another son who has a Birthday
next week as well! They are 10 yrs. apart - Which
means the youngest will be 13 this year! Yikes!!!
My Baby is growing up so fast! :) 

Of course, with this being a BIG Milestone Birthday
for my youngest, we are having a PARRRTAY!
Which means I HAD to make Invitations!! Okay, Okay,
I didn't have too, but if you make cards... ummm you kind of do!

Here's what his invites look like - I did remove the
personal info... cuz we are on the internet! (Wink Wink)

Since he will be a Teenager - my thought process was pretty simple - 
Ummm...  Video Games/ Remotes!! LOL
I wanted to make the invite as simple as possible and still
look kind of cool - so I went with a simple Xbox Remote design
which I found in the Silhouette Store (#79637) - I think it is a Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon Design - I made it more like a Post Card type of design -
so the kids could just flip it over for the information -

I Used White Embossing powder for the sentiment stamp, so it
would Pop on that Black Card stock - Sentiment is from
My Pink Stamper

I added Glossy Accents to the colored buttons, just so it would
have a more realistic look - I also Added Dimensionals to pop up
the 2 grey circles to look like the joy sticks on a regular remote. 

This is the back side of the card - I used the Offset feature in the Silhouette Program to makes the White Card stock shape a little smaller
and to write out the info for them - I then used the Print N Cut Feature
to get everything where I wanted it - 

 I've heard back from everyone who is coming - so my
son is very excited about his party this coming Saturday!
