Tutorial Thursdays - Spring Invitations

Welcome back to another edition of Tutorial Thursdays Linky Party.
Today I want to show you how to create some eye-catching, yet simple spring garden invitations.

For this craft you will need:

a Serviette with motif that you desire
Design Freezer* (a glue that "Freezes" Stuff into place)
Miralight clay* (A soft, lightweight, pliable clay that is air-drying)
Gonis Decor* (Universal paints used to decorate the card and clay)

First: Cut the serviette into the four pieces that are naturally formed by the folds.
Lay one of the quarters on a clear plastic map. Do not remove any of the back layers, leave it as is.

Using the Design Freezer* drench the serviette, I use a sponge to help me with this step, but if you prefer a brush use one, just be very careful to not tear the serviette.

Whilst the serviette is drying, take some of the Miralight* Clay, roll it out and using a cookie cutter cut out the forms that you will be using.

Once cut out allow the form to dry.

Decorate your form with Gonis Decor and Dekopointer

Place a blank card behind the serviette, punch and thread with ribbon.
Decorate the card with Gonis Dekopointer and there you have it :)

  3. Love the butterfly on the invitations! Thanks for hosting another party! :-)

  4. I gave you a liebster award Natalie. I know you deserve to have an award. ;)

  5. I enjoyed this hopping around. I learn so much from several of you!
    I'm a quilting newbie, but loved figuring out how to design a picket fence border. I've a long way to go to complete my picket fence border, but it's what I'm working on, so I thought it would be ok to "show & tell" an unfinished project. My photo shows it with some block swap BLOCKS that will be surrounded with my fence, trim and grass. Explained better on my blog!:)


Thanks for visiting my site and leaving a comment, I really appreciate each and every one.
I will reply to each of your comments, sometimes it does take a while to get around to all of them, but I will reply within 24 hours of you posting. :)
