I’ve had the pleasure of being on the Creative Team for Amanda Robinson Studios for a while now and after a little hiatus, we are back with a new Team Coordinator, new cut files for your inspiration and, coming soon, new cut file and printable bundles!! If you have a digital die cut machine like a Silhouette, I encourage you to check out Amanda’s shop. She’s got super cute, trendy and usable files for sale as well as a ton that are 100% FREE.
Yesterday she posted a FREE file called Egg Hunt and I got to play with it beforehand.
My middle daughter was born early on the Saturday morning of the Easter weekend 8 years ago (I think it was the trypophan from the turkey dinner at my SIL’s the night before that jump started my labour!!) It’s rare to have Easter fall so late so we are taking full advantage of the extra long weekend this year and having her party on the Saturday. Very fitting!! I always associate her birthday with Easter so it’s nice to actually have it coincide this year again!! Anyway, this file was perfect for her invitations!!
Paige initially wanted a Pirate themed party with a treasure hunt as part of the festivities but I managed to convince her that an Easter Egg Hunt would be just as fun. (Although, as you’ll see in a minute, there is a slight pirate bent to this party too!!) To keep it Easter-y, I used soft colours for the invitations. I love the tone on tone look!
The simple addition of a punched butterfly and an enamel dot dress up the invitation just enough.
Here’s a look at the reverse side (the Pirate side!!)
I took a screen capture shot of our house from Google Earth, gave it a vintage look in Picasa then printed it off on regular printer paper. To distress the edges I “cut” it out by folding the paper and ripping along the folds then holding a match to the edges. Now to figure out how to get an eye patch on the Easter Bunny!! LOL!
Thanks for stopping by. Don’t forget to head over to Amanda’s store and browse her selection of cut files!
