An earlier post called “Samples of DIY Quinceanera Invitations” highlighted an invitaiton posted at the Stamp Crazy Girl blog. Since then I’ve been sent notices of other Quinceanera invitations using the same stamp (offered by Stampin Up). They have all turned out beautifully, and are good examples of ways you can make Quiceanera invitations in a do-it-yourself mode.
Ann at Stamperdog.com highlighted this Quinceanera invitation made by a girl in Puerto Rico. It’s a top-fold card with a decorative side ribbon. Colorful, yet simple, with a unique pop up feature inside!
Another great one was done by Connie, a Stampin Up demonstrator at Constantly Stamping. Connie has clearly done this kind of thing before and while I won’t speak for any of you, she’s got more artistic talent in her pinky than I have in in my whole body (most people do…). This one is also a top-fold style and uses a pink and chocolate color theme very nicely to make an elegant Quinceanera invitation. She adds some color, shimmer, and even rhinestones to make this one sparkle. The ribbons are part of the layered design, and help make this invitation a real keepsake.
Melissa at instampingmode.com used the same stamp to make a Quinceanera card, but could easily be used as an invitation. She customized the color to match the green colors of the dress and celebration, and also added a ribbon, flower, and a button for accent.
Lisa from Peanuts and Peppers, another Stampin Up demonstrator, made this one in pink.
From Yvonne’s Stamping Place, Yvonne used the stamp in a stair step design to demontrate this Quinceanera invitation. She describes in detail all the materials she used to make this invitation on her blog.
There are lots of ways to take a DIY approach to your Quinceanera invitations. Let me know if you have pictures of your own Quinceanera invitations that you either made yourself or customized to fit your theme.
