Slider Invitation!

You are invited!!!!  Hi ~ Lori here from ScrappinMyStressAway with a super fun invitation for you!

I saw a slider invitation in Hobby Lobby's  Scrapbooking Magazine (1st Quarter 2012) and thought it looked like fun to make.

As usual, I grabbed my Gypsy and got started.

I lined up all of my elements on separate Layers.  I started with a 6x6 square.  I put a circle at 5 inches on the next layer.  
I put the doily from Easter 2010 on the next layer at 3.13 inches.
I put a scalloped oval from Art Philosophy on the next layer at 2.57 inches.
I put the fancy oval tag on the next layer at 1.25 inches (the size of the coordinating stamp).

I welded two butterfly borders from Paper Trimmings at 1 inch and put them on the next layer.

I opened yet another layer and copied all of the pieces onto one mat to cut them out.

I used white card stock for my doily, orange cardstock for my circle, and scrap paper for the rest.

I cut a 6 1/4 x 6 1/4 square from light blue cards tock.  I cut my striped paper 6x6 and adhered it to the blue card stock.

The blue scalloped oval is cut on 2-sided paper.  I don't like the blue side as much as I thought I would.

I flipped it over!  Much better.

I used the You're Invited stamp from CTMH ~ these stamps come with the Art Philosophy Bundle.

I cut out this butterfly (2.24 inches) from Hannah Montana to attach to the slide.

I only glued the center of the butterfly layer and bent the wings up just a bit.
Here is the closed invitation.  I hope you can come!!
