It is along weekend in Quebec, our national holiday. But... we also celebrated my little scrapbooking friend's anniversary. Her best friend had planned the surprise party quite a while in advance, wanted to make her 40th anniversary very special. She had decided on a white and blue theme, and asked me to help create the invitations cards, which I was unable to post, in order to keep the surprise. As a special gift, all the guests were invited to make a scrapbook page of a picture of them and Brigitte. Since I had no picture to scrap, I offered to make the title page of the album. Paule and I decided that the title of the album would be "Brigitte & company", and I started from there. Take a coffee, there is a lots of pictures... You can always double click on them to get a closer view.
Bon matin chères amies,
Quelques gros plans de toutes les Tilda...
We chose the Diagonal pocket card - measuring 6X 6.; the two tags contained informations about the special theme. On the left inside pannel, a ribbon held the answering card, and the text of the invitation itself was on the right pannel. We choose Stampin up cardstock in Bashful blue, and Marina mist; the nice cupcake is from an unknown stamp set, along with the "Oh la la!" sentiment. the octogone behind the cupcake is embossed with cuttlebug Dot embossing folder. We used the background dot stamp from Hero Harts and the Candel Crazy wheel from SU, in Marine mist ink to decorate the front of the card. Ribons are from Stampin up in Marine mist.
Nous avons choisi la carte à pochettes en diagonale afin d'y glisser des étiquettes explicatives du thème de la fête. A l'intérieur, un ruban retenait la carte-réponse, et l'invitation proprement dite. Le tout réalisé en carton STampin up, couleur bleu timide et murmure marin. Le cupcake et le sentiment proviennent d'un jeu dont la provenance est inconne. L'octogone derrière l'image est embossé avec un plioir de cuttlebug "dot". C'est une étampe de Hero Harts qui décore l'arrière plan (petits points) et une roue de STampin up appelée Candle Carzy, tous deux imprimés en murmure marin. Les rubans sont de Su, aussi en murmure marin.
