Graduation Party Invites

I just finished making 50 invitations to my son's grad party. I love doing things like this but I despise doing the same thing over and over again. By the time I finished I had it down to a fine science but it does not allow for much creative work. Both stamps are embossed in Disco Black which gives major sparkle. I used my Prismacolored Marker to fill in the stamps. The diplomas are colored with a white gel pen.

I certainly got use of the curvy rectangle nestibility. I used 4 sizes on each invite. Black and gold are the grad colors so again I used these strong colors. I needed something striking to show up so I used DS's favorite color orange....good thing it matched! I love the diploma hat brads I found. I ordered them ages ago from http://www.www.scrapbookingcafeonline.ca/index.html. They are a great price...10 for $1.

The party info is on the inside. I used the computer to create the message and used the smaller curvy rectangles to cut it out. I am very pleased with these and my son thinks they fine...17 year old males are not big on party invites. Now all I have to do is clean the house, make some decorations and figure out the food. Lots of time for that. I should be able to procrastinate that until just before the party. No need to be too prepared!!!
Got to go get one of the boys so I will be back with another post later.
