Hail to the Chief

Happy Hellos Everyone:

I hope your weekend has kicked-off to a fantastic start. There is so much going on this weekend--the most exciting being the playoff game between the Baltimore RAVENS vs. Denver Broncos. In my mind I just knew I would be attending some local gathering, but I don't think that will happen this weekend. This is one of those rare occasions where my mind and body are in agreement [lol] and that is to just lay low.

In doing so, I wanted to share an invitation I made for and upcoming brunch in honor of the 57th Presidential Inauguration. I wanted to make an invitation that depicted the occasion. It had to be both special and memorable. Take a look....

I had a lot of fun pulling this invitation together. I thought this invitation fit 
the occasion perfectly.

I discovered the most perfect glitter paper to work with at my LSS.  This glitter
 paper doesn't shed or lift from the paper. It's smooth to the touch and
 relatively thin compared to other brands.

As soon as I learned I would be making invitations for an inaugural brunch,
 I immediately had a concept of what I wanted to make. The front of the
 invitation would have the look of a black wrought iron gate.

I used my computer to create a seal. I only wished I had more time to work on it. 

I used several fonts for the wording.

The iron gate effect was achieved by using my Silhouette.

I hope you were inspired to create that unique invitation. It's all about
 adding that extra to your special occasion.

As always, thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery and come back real soon.
