Penguin Birthday Invitations

I made these invitations for a celebration of my daughter's 13th birthday. At 13 she asked to "hang out" with her friends. So we decided to invite 12 girls to the movies, Shakey's pizza and then to our house for a slumber party. This will all be happening on Saturday so I have lots of prep for all those teenagers coming over!!
I chose the invitation card from the Cricut Wild Card cartridge and cut it at 4 1/2" so 2 would fit on a 12"x12" sheet of white paper. I used my Imagine so I could fill the cuts with the cartridge paper and have them all matching. I found the cuts from Imagine More Cards and chose the colored papers from that cartridge as well. I used my gypsy to remove the face cuts from the penguin in the Create a Critter cartridge and used the Happy Lashes Peachy Keen stamps for the faces. I stickled the scarf and added some purple and white twine for the balloon string.

This is the backside and shows how it opens. I used the computer to type out the invite and attached it to the liner that goes in with the corner cuts that the invitation cut makes on the Wild Card cartridge.

This is how they looked front and back! I made 13 of these and it went pretty quick using the Imagine. I'm not a pro with my Imagine and have yet to try my gypsy with it but I am happy that I decided to use it! My dog is still lost and I have not been crafting like I would like. It feels like losing a family member to me. I am so sad. Please say a prayer for my lost dog and that he is safe and comes home soon.
I will enter these cards into the Fantabulous Cricut blogs "Spring is in the Air" Challenge
We miss you Mickey!
