date night invite

My one and only boy is away at Navy boot camp,  so what's a girl to do with a whole pack of Boys Will Be Boys robot-themed stickers?


Make a Date Night invite for your Sweetie {aka Better Half} of course!  Gordon and I try to sneak in one Date Night a month and have been rather successful so far. This happy robot card will be his fun little reminder for July 2011.

Wondering how I made a rectangle window on the card front so that you can see the Programmed to Love sticker on the inside? With my square punch...punching and then moving down and punching the card again until the I had the perfect sized rectangle for my embossed puffy sticker. I used two layers of pop dots under the sticker to give it even more dimension.


I packaged the invite inside a glassine envelope and added another embossed puffy sticker { All Systems Go - cute right?} to a paper strip from the Family Forever line of patterned papers. See the arrow? It's the negative space left over from trimming the ends of my decorative paper strip and points out the message hidden inside.


I hope you'll have fun thinking "outside the box" when you have a handful of stickers and time to make a few cards.
