I don't have children, so I've never hosted a children's birthday party. But, boy, would I love to do that. There are so many fun party invitation and decorating ideas out there these days, the sky is the limit.
When I saw these Truck Brads, I immediately thought of making a party invitation. And the Caution Washi Tape, Jewel Bling and Clear Bumpy Bling worked perfectly with the brads.
To create the card base, I modified a cut file I purchased at the Silhouette Store. The original version was actually a 3D street sign. The greeting plays off the three dump trucks all in a row. This brad pack also includes a Cement Mixer and a Front End Loader...perfect for any construction themed project.
The caution not only adds a little accent, it also provides support for the card. I cut a piece of cardstock and attached the washi tape to both the front and the back.
I filled the hazard light with Clear Bump Bling, colored with a Copic marker. There was enough room around the perimeter to circle it with jewel bling.
When you open the card, there's just enough room for all the invitation specifics.
I had fun making this and came up with all sorts of ideas for party favors and decorations to go with it. Now, I just need to find a little boy who loves trucks and has a birthday coming up, lol.
Though it doesn't include trucks, here's another card brought to life with bling and washi tape.
