Scroll Shaped Invitation Cards Tutorial

Scroll Shaped Invitation Cards
         Dear friends I had shared earlier in a post on the Egyptian King Tutankhamen Framed art tutorial  that we were having an Egyptian themed birthday party for my daughter.I am so touched that many of you asked about the crafty stuff we did for the party.
     These Scroll style Invitation card were made by my little girl[ who turned 8 on May 30th]...they are super simple to make but I know a lot of "non card makers" do drop by my blog ,so penning down a few steps on

How we made our DIY Scroll Invitation Cards

  1. We embossed white ivory card stock using a Provocraft “Invitation” embossing folder  - My little girl has so much more muscle power now than when she made the Ocean Stationary Set.You can alternately print or hand write the words.
  2. My little girl herself claimed we had to "age"  the paper !! We went to town distressing it away by randomly sponging with distress ink ...and to my amazement she didn't tire even after inking 15 cards! Use any brown ink you have and since the whole idea is to dirty it up little hands can have a blast!

  3. We rolled  golden pattern paper into paper rolls ...this was quite tricky for her little hands so I made most of the paper rolls! [See another Paper roll Project]
  4. Nothing like a bit of gold for added glamour so we added Spellbinder die cut banners and tassels [Similar tassels also used on this Fancy Fold card]to make our scroll card

  5. I had these pretty  golden crescents which were negatives of the swirl border memory box die used in the Paper Flower Romance card and my little girl loved them so much she patiently stuck numerous tiny golden crescents on to her Scroll card !! She claimed Queen Cleopatra's Card would be decked in gold!!
  6. We varied the banners slightly and added different golden peacock feathers to each scroll card as a final touch.

  14. The scroll invites are wonderful looking; especially with the gold & distressing. I think you need to block out the RSVP number for privacy reasons. Would like to see photos from the party.
