As it is our first birthday
creating a PARTY SET is perfect!

Here is what I created using some of my Purple Onion stamps.

Invite with matching place tag, treat bag and cup cake toppers and party blower.

Here are the steps to make these.

-Load up the Purple Onion Vintage damask background stamp with paint and stamp onto 3 pieces white card. One for the invite and the others to make up the extra bits.

-Once paint is dry ink up the Purple Onion Happy Birthday Border Tape or HBBT for short and stamp across the bottom of the invite piece about an inch up and on another piece which has been cut in half, stamp the birthday strip onto both.

-Mount the invite and the place tag and treat bag topper onto black card. Folding the treat bag topper and place card in half.

-Add to each of these a thin black punched strip under the stamping and a ribbon and bow above it.

-Add some letter stickers, a few punched butterflies and some bling.

-Out of the damask extras punch out several circles and matching black scallops to make the blower and cup cake topper embellies.

-For the blower using some brought one as a template trace onto black bazzill, assemble and embellish.
