Birthday Invitations

My neighbor Christine asked me to create 35 invitations for her husband's 40th surprise birthday party.  The party was last night - so I can finally post the invites I made!

I decided to make a pocket invite with a belly band. First time doing this type of card/invite - and it was a lot of fun!  We decided on an aqua/brown color palette and the herringbone Cuttlebug folder - it was a bit more masculine than the swiss dots that I started off with.
Here's a closer shot of the invite in the pocket

I printed up the actual invite on the computer and layered it on the aqua to be slide inside the pocket. And I used a Recollections stamp set for the "40"

And, since were were invited to the party too - I wanted to make Chris a birthday card that matched his invitation - so here's what I made:
Thanks for stopping in today! Hope you liked the invitations!
