Pizza Party Invites

Today marks another Die Cuttin' Divas challenge. This week it's:

Anything goes!
This is the fifth week of the month so we thought we've give you an easy challenge. 
For this challenge, I decided to share my son's birthday invitations. He wanted a pizza party so what else would we make the invites to look like??

We used Simply Charmed for the pizza cut and the toppings. It's cut at 4 1/4" and fits perfectly into an A2 envelope (yea for no extra postage).

We made a total of 17 invitations. All included black olives, green peppers, pepperoni and cheese. After Owie picked his toppings we cut enough for all the pizza slices. We inked the pepperoni with brown ink to give it some dimension. The crust was sponged with some darker brown ink too.

Here you can see the little triangles I designed to fit the back of our pizza slices. I just created the triangle in Photoshop and added the text, formatted to fit inside. I hand cut the triangles and attached them to the backs. The little "Let's party!" stamp is an old stamp from my stash (KI Memories, I think).

Lastly, we added these little jute hangers to our pizza. I thought it would be a fun way to hang the invitation on the calendar etc to remind everyone about the party. Everyone LOVED the invites... but Owie was worried that his friends or cousins may not like peppers on their pizza. I assured him that no one would eat the paper pizzas! :)

Now please take some time this week to create and link up on the Die Cuttin' Divas blog. The theme is Anything goes

The prize this week is Stamping Scrapping. They will be offering a $20 gift certificate or any one spellbinders matching stamp set ($30 value).

Such a great idea for a boy's party. Sometimes they are harder to do. I am sure he is proud of these invites.

Thanks for the inspiration,
Cindy :)

Those pizza invitations are super adorable, Cheryl! Great job! And they look pretty simple, except for all the toppings! Thanks for your comments on my candy gift holder. The holder itself was cut from Wild Card, not TBBM. Just in case you're looking for it!--pat
