We chose a textured cardstock for the belly band. We contemplated using ribbon, but again much less costly. Today, I used not quite 2 sheets of 12" x 12" Pumpkin Pie Cardstock.
Using the corners I cut away to make the criss-cross card bases, I punched the Basic Black scalloped circles. I also used scraps of Whisper White cardstock that were big enough to punch out 1 3/8" circles.
My friend, Wendy was so nice. She used her die cut machine and cut out these cute little bitty number 1's for us. I just didn't have anything the right size. Thanks, Wendy! ♥
They were buggers to get on though--they were tiny!
Yep, thrifty moment. I cut my dimensionals into halves or fourths. They go 2 to 4 times further and work just as well.
All popped up! We are in the home stretch....
Here are the 2 dozen invites (minus the party information). No one seems to know what time the ceremony is so I have no idea what to put for a start time for her party. LOL You know those last minute details. :) Dani said she will find out tomorrow so I can type up and print out the insert.
