I will warn you...these are a little time consuming to make but they are so worth it. It does not help that with all our family and friends I am sending out more then thirty invites. Absolutely ridiculous, but we can't and don't want to leave anyone out.
I started out with a cream background and a brown textured paper for on top. I found this fabulous punch stamp from Martha Stewart to produce the train silhouette at the top. Blue and white striped fabric was cut by hand into small pockets for the train ticket to slide into. I found tacky glue to be the easiest way to affix the pocket on the card.
Luckily, we recently had some precious pictures done at the train station by Melissa at ebonyblancimages.com. These wallets made the perfect addition to the invites and can be easily removed by our guests for an updated picture of Reese.
The train ticket was a lot of fun to design. I made them in advance because all I had to do when I picked the date was punch out the correct month and date.
|The address to the party was under Boarding at 2 pm|
The tickets easily slid into the pocket and once they were finally all assembled I sent them out!
