Got Stamps?

If it can sit still, it can be stamped!

Pirate Birthday Invitation

I made this invitation for my son’s party – which was pirate themed. It was made using the quarterfold technique. Here’s how:

1. Take two pieces of cardstock. Lay one of them in your cutter portrait-wise and cut at 4 1/4″ (in half, the long way. We’ll call this piece A.
2. Take your second piece of cardstock and place it in your cutter landscape-wise and cut at 5 1/2″ (In half, the horizontal way) We’ll call this piece B.
You actually now have pieces to make TWO cards!!
3. Take piece A (the long piece) and score at 2 3/4″ and 8 1/4″.
4. Take piece B (the short piece) and score at 2″ and 6 1/2″.
5. Fold pieces A and B on the score lines. Glue the back of piece A and lay on top of piece B.
6. When dry, turn over with all of the flaps open. Stamp the flaps as desired. Color or embellish as desired.
7. Stamp a message on the inside of the card.
8. Fold the card like you would a box-top. (The last piece gets tucked, so that all flaps are held down.)
9. Embellish the outside more if you would like to.
