Because I am just a little old fashioned I decided we needed a paper invite for the graduation party in addition to the Facebook Event the girls created.
Besides being old fashioned, I just like making invitations and I needed something to put in the scrapbook too!
I love including photos on invitations when possible, it just makes them more personal.
I chose two photos from the fun little photo shoot we had. I used the one they had chosen for the Facebook Event so there was some continuity and one other one.
I used my Creative Memories Storybook Creator software to create the invite. So easy to do!
Here’s the front. I just used the picture as a full bleed on a 5 x 7 blank template and then added a text box on top of the photo and then the words.
and here is the back with the info. I added another photo and then created a text box for all the wording. I used the font Rockwell.
Many times if I am just doing a one sided invite I will upload it to Costco and have it printed as a photograph with the lustre finish (not glossy) but since this invite was double sided I uploaded it and had it printed through Overnight Prints. This is the same place I had my Christmas card done. They do a great job and are really inexpensive, especially if they have a sale going on.
I ordered the 5 x 7 cards with rounded corners and with envelopes and I think the total cost for 50 with shipping was $30.00.
Now I need to create the invite for the second graduation party – can’t wait to share the theme for that one with you too!!
