One of the jobs that I consider tiresome is the construction of invitations. This happens because I can never keep it simple. And of course, using different tecniques is fun when you make the prototype but very boring when you have to repeat it x times. But it happens that sometimes the recipient is worth the effort.

The invitations I will show you were made for a baptism (christening), of a dear baby boy whose parents are close friends. I also made the wish book and the paper part of the decorations but these are an other post.

The theme was pirates, so I had to improvise into something that was of pirate origin but happy enough to fit a cute baby boy.

I used black and white canson paper to cut the invitation in two different sizes in my craft-robo.I distressed the white paper using distress inks and water and finally ironed it flat. I passed the invitation through my printer, stamped the little pirate and the compass , colored them with promarkers and added glitter and glossy accents for a shine. I added a brad to the compass and paper pierced the parrot and glued it with dimentional dots to give a 3D impression. I embossed with antique embossing powder the white poles and then put everything together using Mod Podge.

The "envellope" is made on a similar basis, except that I colored the ship with Derwent Inktense pencils, as the promarkers stain the back side of the paper as well.
