The other day I showed you the invitations I made for my son’s 4th birthday party this year.   I’ve already had some great feedback about how excited the kids were to open the card and see a big ball pop up!

That all reminded me of an invitation I made for his birthday party when he was 2 and obsessed with Elmo from Sesame Street.


I used the Stampin’ Up! Scallop Circle Die with my Big Shot to cut out all Riding Hood Red circles for the invitations.    The white eyes were cut from the Circles #2 die and I think I used my smallest circle punch for the black centres (you could also use the larger circles from the Stampin’ Up! Owl Builder punch).    The nose was cut from Tangerine Tango (but Pumpkin Pie or More Mustard would also work).    The black mouth was half of the largest circle from the Circles #2 die.

I stamped a basic invitation block on the back and I was done.


Too easy – and the kids adored them!
