Lawn Fawn :: Sneak-a-Peek :: Critters in the Sea

Hey there everyone! I hope you're enjoying your weekend. Today, starts the sneak-a-peeks of Lawn Fawn's new stamp sets. Critters in the Sea is the stamp set I'm featuring today; however, today's project will relate to tomorrow's sneak-a-peek, so make sure you come back! I created a simple party invitation, perfect for a little boy's party. I could only imagine how difficult it would be to create fun and cute boyish party invites, but the Critters in the Sea set will make it a cinch!

Here's how I made it!

  1. Cut white cardstock to create an A2 card base.
  2. Stamp 'bubble' background in black ink.
  3. Die cut and emboss circle and inverted scalloped circle from summer sunrise and aqua mist cardstock, respectively.
  4. Stamp 'fish' on summer sunrise cardstock, cut out and pop off inverted scalloped circle die cut.
  5. Stamp 'party invite' with black ink.
  6. Mat together and pop off invite front center.
Tips & Tricks
  • Keep handmade invitations simple so you can create them in batches.
  • To add an extra step, you could color the bubbles or ink them in various colors.
