I know I have been MIA for a little while, but it was for a good cause. My niece has enlisted in the Marines and leaves in a week. She asked me to make invitations for the send off and I have been putting in 16 hour days trying to get them done in time.
Now there was a tricky bit to these invites; my niece wanted them to be girly, glittery, and pink and my sister wanted them to be military and more formal.
I think I came up with a perfect compromise. I created a gate fold card using a pink marine symbol on a central band and painted glitter on to each piece of camouflage. Instead of a more traditional red piping, I used the same pink to mat the card.
