 So, after yesterday's workshop I came home and the crafting continued (much as I really fancied a snooze on the sofa!).

I stamped, embossed and cut out 20 sentiments using a Whispers 'You're Invited' stamp and Brilliance Rocket Red ink.

At this point I should explain the invites are for a birthday party with a casino - hence the cake/playing card 'fusion'!.

The playing cards are cut out of white card with their corners rounded.  Peel offs coloured red for the letters and hearts & diamonds punched out and stuck on.

The cupcake components were all individually stamped, punched and stuck together and added to the middle of the top playing card with 3D foam pads.

The printed inserts also have hearts & diamonds cut out of the corners.

Been at a bike race today (that I bunked off yesterday to go stamping) so now on to the next card!


  1. Jill these are great little invitations and love the 'playing card' look very clever


  2. Brilliant set of cards Jill - really ingeniously designed. At least you had a fairly dry day at the bike race today ......... it's bucketing down here at the moment! Typical British weather.......!

  3. Wow these are brilliant and what a lot of cutting, stamping and punching - great result though.

  4. Gorgeous invitations! your house must be like a little factory!
