  • Family Reunion Invitation

    Designed By Martha Stewart Crafts

    Your family will be delighted to receive this family-tree themed invitation made with Martha Stewart Crafts stamps and punches to celebrate a reunion.

     

Directions:

1. Print invitation text on white cardstock. Cut to 4 1/4 x 6in, leaving space at top to stamp branch and leaves.

2. Stamp branch at upper left corner as shown. Stamp leaves on ends of branch. Tip: To achieve a faded look to the leaves on the branch, first stamp a leaf on the bottom of the card. Then, without re-inking, stamp leaf on branch.

3. Stamp a few leaves in various colors across bottom of card. Tip: To achieve the look of layered leaves, create a mask. Do this by stamping a leaf on a sticky note, keeping part of the stamp over the sticky part. Cut out the leaf to finish the mask. Stamp a leaf on the card, and then place the mask directly over the stamped leaf. Stamp a new leaf across the edge of the mask and onto the project. Remove the mask. The second stamped leaf will appear to be behind the first leaf.

4. On a separate piece of white cardstock, stamp a round label in red. Punch out the label using a circle punch, and adhere it to the upper right of the invitation as shown.

5. On a separate piece of white cardstock, stamp four leaves in various colors and cut them out with scissors.

6. Layer and adhere three of the leaves over the stamped leaves at the bottom. Allow some leaves to extend across the edge of the paper, and trim with scissors.

7. Adhere the fourth leaf with an adhesive foam dot slightly overlapping the stamped label image, as shown.

8. Using Alphabet Punch, punch out monogram letter and adhere to stamped label image.

9. Mat invitation on brown cardstock.
