Cookie Monster Invites - Yum! Yum!

Progess continues on the preparations for Henry's first birthday party. We're expecting about ten people - not too big, but not too small either.

We're planning a "Sesame Street: New Beginnings" theme (i.e. "baby" muppets), and I made this cookie monster card as the party invitation. Overall, I'm pleased with the results.
The inside of the card reads, "Henry's One!", and then lists all of the party details (time, date, place, etc.).


This three layer card is made with SU! basic black as a base, whisper white as a middle layer, and close to cocoa as the top layer. White paper is stamped with Karen Foster snap stamps in SU! Chocolate Chip classic ink. Brown paper is stamped with SU! Chocolate Chip wheel, and edged using a sponge pounced on the same ink pad.

Cookie Monster is made using Marvy's Mega scalloped circle punch. I punched white paper and then sponged it with SU! Brocade Blue ink. Eyes are made with 1/4" circle punch (black paper) and 3/4" circle punch (white paper). Mouth is 1" punched circle cut in half. Brown grosgrain ribbon to finish.
