Yes, that is what a few friends told my husband when he turned 40 last month. Let’s hope those friends are right, because I will be reaching that milestone in a few years…yikes!
When I started planning a surprise family dinner party for my husband, I began by creating a simple logo in Illustrator:
This logo was placed on the invitations, envelopes, favors, and correspondence.
I went with a ticket stub theme for the invitation. Here is the front of the invite:
This is what the invitation looks like when it is opened up:
The ticket stub can be removed; it is held in place by the two slit punches in the dark gray cardstock.
White cardstock – Fox River Select Cover, 80# Protocol White
Basic Gray cardstock – Stampin’ Up
Slit punch – Stampin’ Up
