birthday invitations for Kendall

Here are the invitations I made for my daughters Birthday. She is a true girly girl, so these invitations are soooo Kendall. She will be a great papercrafter one day so she appreciates all the work I put into these.
The envelopes are small open-end envelopes by SU, the dimensions are 6 3/4 in x 3 1/2 in & are Whisper White. I punched out Kraft paper using the small tag punch {SU}, then punched a hole at the top & ran Certainly Celery ribbon through it and attached it with a brad. The stamp sets used are Eat Cake and Polka Dots and Petals, all stamped in Regal Rose.

For the insert I cut kraft down until it would fit. I ran whisper white cardstock through the printer to put all of the birthday info on it {I always do this with invitations} then I cut that down to fit on top of the kraft paper. Before attaching the whisper white paper, I stamped more images from Polka Dots & Petals in Regal Rose. The Regal Rose tab was punched using a SU Round Tab {love this punch}. Using my Big Bite I punched a hole through all of those layers like butter>"<>
Each tag on the front envelope was personalized with the child's name. They are really cute and easy invitations to make. For the girls invited to stay over, I put that info on the back side of the invitation. Those left the house this morning with Kendall, so I don't have a photo to share.
