A double celebration card is always a challenge for us cardmakers. How to incorporate two events in one invitation got my creative juices working when a former schoolmate of mine, Oyin, asked me if I could design for him an invitation for her daughter's birthday and a housewarming party for their new home in Singapore. After much thinking and sketching, I finally settled for a tri-fold card with a sort of French door aperture on the front. For the faux glass, I glued an acetate at the back of the door so one could see a view of the inside. I thought what better way to welcome guests but a door.
On the second fold, I used a Stamping Bella image holding a glass wine as the birthday girl. I also used a Pink Petticoat image of a chandelier with beads and crystal gems to give the room an elegant feel along with the comfy sofa.
On the 3rd fold or the middle fold are the details of the event. I used Pink Petticoat papers as the background for all the pages of the invitation- damask and stripes.
