50th Birthday invite order.

I have been working on an order for
Birthday Invites for a males 50th birthday.
I had SO many ideas I just didn't know where to start! 
Man I found this quite a tough nut to solve,
Its SO much easier making cards for females!
But I am pleased with the result and so was my customer
so thats all that counts!

I love the whole process of making multiple identical cards.
Once I have designed the card,
I make my own mini production line
Making each peice finished for every card
before I move on to the next part.
setting everything out in neat piles.
(hehe small pleasures)

I used Edwin From mini magnolia world (?)
I have painted him with Distress re-inkers.
The funny thing is that he resembles
the guy who is holding the party!

This label is printed out from my PC,
Chopped down then corner punched,
and attached with 3D tape over some lovley
silky Vintage seam binding.

The beautiful design paper I used is called
Damask Oxford
 and is designed by none other than
my husband!
Clever man, clever clever man.

Yeehaa finshed.
Each card has my new personal stamp on the back.
Gone are the days of me spending a whole evening
getting cramp in my hand
 signing the back of cards!
(I know it kind of takes the 
personal touch away
but hey how much time it saves me!!)
I am entering these cards into the following challenges:
Paper play challenges - week 17 - Monochrome and Ribbon.
(Ends 2/5)
Cards for men - texture ( the ribbon)
(ends 6/5)
