Holiday Cocktail Party Invite

This is the invite I made--18 of them--for our annual holiday cocktail party that we hold the first Saturday in December.  I really like all of the components of this card and I used some of my favorites--Happy Hour stamp set, the Winter Frost DSP, Northern Frost Embossing Folder and now the Snowflake Soiree stamp and matching die bundle.  I just ordered it last week at hostess club--but I used it at Camp Stamp-in-Oga earlier this month to make these cards.

This is the inside of the card, with the actual invite that I printed.  I made the layered snowflake at Camp and had to realign the top of the invite to make it fit.  I did blur out parts of the invite with the address and phone number for the picture for my blog post; that's why two lines might look a bit odd. 

As you can see, we are having an "Ugly Christmas Sweater" Contest this year.  It should be a hoot and I hope to show some pictures of the entrants after the party. I might need to blur out some of their faces if I post pictures on my blog........................

Oh, your party sounds like fun! The colors are really fun on this invite. The die cut for the sentiment looks great on the oval. The dual ribbons look good. Have a great time!!!
