They are Finished!

I know I have been rather inconsistent in my blog posts the past few weeks, but I have a good reason. I've been working on a project for Amazima Ministries International, and I just put it in the mail this afternoon!

AMI is an organization that feeds, educates, and loves children in Uganda. On July 17 there is going to be a fundraising dinner in Brentwood, TN, and I volunteered to make the invitations. The organizers wanted large invites for the table sponsors and I suggested that these folks have business card-sized reminders they could give to those they invite to be guests at their table.

The invitation is a 4" x 6" base of Basic Black. The Whisper White layer was stamped with a Papertrey Ink border from Simply Stationery that I colored with Real Red, Only Orange, Summer Sun, Garden Green, and Brilliant Blue. The details of the event are printed on vellum and adhered with glue dots. The organization's logo was printed and placed in the middle of the WW layer underneath the vellum.

The reminder cards are a smaller abbreviated version of the large invite, measuring 2" x 3.5", and have all the same elements. There were 225 of these to color, cut, and layer!

I'm so pleased to have had the opportunity to be involved with Amazima in this way. Our family will be road tripping next month to be at the dinner...anyone interested in making a caravan?
