Sesame Street Party | Invites

A party always starts with the invite. This sets the theme for everything!


The cards was inspired from Pinterest like many other things you will see this week.

The pinspiration was:



Looking at the pinspiration and the invite that I made I wish I would have popped the faces out with a pop dot. But craft and learn.

The pinspiration card was made with all punch cuts. Since I have a Cricut Expression I wanted to use that instead of buying something new.

After laboring away to create that scallop shape I found one already made on a cartridge. I was a little frustrated by then. The scallop can be found on the Cricut Cartridge Birthday Bash under the letters, shift. It is intended to be a tag, but if you have the Cricut DesignStudio Software then you can hid the tage holes and it will be a solid scallop.

For all the other faces I used the Cricut Cartridge Sesame Street Friends. It was a PAIN to get the faces the right size but I was so happy with it. Each face also had a million pieces.

Hindsight I dont really like the way Bert and Ernie came out but I love Oscar and The Count.
To make the can lines for Oscar's square I used a paper trimmer with a scorer 'blade'.
My card was about 5x4 and fits into a standard A2 card envelope. My interior squares were 1x1

I am going to be doing this theme again in the summer for my niece and I think I will make the card with only  4 characters and take out Bert and Ernie.
