CandyLand Inspired Birthday Invitation

20130309-213732.jpg
Our granddaughter turned two just a few days ago! Time has flown by and she has come a long way from her 1 pound 15 ounces starting weight!

Mommy chose a Candyland birthday theme. I did a search on my Gypsy for candy and cut varying sizes of candy to fit on the 5X7 birthday invitations.

I used card stock that I had to match the paper I found at my local Hobby Lobby.

I used my Gypsy to size and layout the different candy pieces.

I used varying colors of card stock to make the cuts. I had a lot of candy to piece together! I saved the extra for the gift bags and some scrapbook pages.

Once I had all my pieces assembled I was ready to layout my invitations.

Using the Gypsy allows me to use the group feature, hide contour, and copy to get as many pieces of the candy onto my cutting mat. Cricut Craft Room which is free software allows you to do the same thing.

I did try to use a candy cane but it was too small pieces to put together to fit on these invitations. I will use it in her scrapbook layouts and a cupcake!

I printed the invitation on white card stock using CK Lettering and embellished each printed piece by using one of my EK punches.
