Ben’s Second Birthday - Round Two

Last time we talked about Ben’s birthday, we were on a sea theme. Unfortunately the etsy artist whose pictures I loved didn’t have any prints available in greeting card format so we nixed that idea and went with the backup plan. I designed the card myself, with significant help from etsy sellers and pinterest pins. So now I guess we have a balloon-bicycle theme going on. 

Here is the invitation. [Blue is invitation. Pink/Orange is envelope]





There is more information listed on the paper invite [some is removed for security purposes]


Sources:
Bicycle graphic: free internet clipart
Paper: Paper Source. color: Pool. size: A2 (although it was originally in 12x12 and I cut it down to fit through the printer)


I actually sent a pdf to Office Depot and had them print & cut the invititaions. It was about $8, including paper, printing, and cutting. My only beef is that the color (on my monitor) was Paper Source Pool (on left) and I ended up with light blue (on right). 

Not that big a deal....I sent out the light blue ones and kept the original for Ben’s baby book. 



Next up: Cake!! I have some ideas. Actually, I have too many ideas and not enough follow through. 

xo,
