Craft Corner: The Surprise Invite

The RTBF's parents are celebrating their 40th anniversary in a couple weeks!

Anyways, I made these invitations for the surprise dinner we're
having, since I wanted an excuse to use my JustRite monogram stamper. 
(The "P" on the inside monogram is supposed to show through the punched
out circle, but you can't see it in a couple of the pictures when the
cards aren't flat.)

The cover text and inside "shhh" were stamped, as was the monogram;
the rest of the text was handwritten in gold pen.  I used a circle
punch and Nestabilities to cut out the monogram and the cover circle.

There's one card that's different from the rest-- the one with the
thin red band was my first card, and I decided it was just too tricky
to position the ribbon AND the strip of cardstock straight, so I made
the cardstock bigger.  Hey, it's not like they're comparing invites,
right?
