Asia's Golden Birthday Invites

There is a wonderful women who takes care of my son at LA Fitness and as an appreciation to her, I decided to make her daughter some invitations for her daughter Asia's Golden Birthday.
I found some great note cards on sale from 19.99 to 5.99 at Michael's. I used a reply card template to create the inside of the invitation. There will be 2 reply cars per template. Erase the top and use the bottom half.
You may want to use a practice sheet that is included in the kit before printing for real so you know how to properly load the printer. http//print.marthastewart/stationary/flashversion/
I used the high tower font for my invites at a 14pt font and a 20pt font for the Golden Birthday but Martha's website has many font options that you can use as well which will give you wording choices for any occasion. For the outside of the invite I did the same thing. I used a reply card template and erased the top half and only used wording on the bottom.
For the Butterflies, I purchased a Martha Stewart punch one for smaller butterflies for the inside and a larger for the outside. I cut out White butterflies and laid those on top of the gold ones to give an element of demention. I also chose to fold the smaller butterflies for the inside. I did 2 folds each along side of the body of the butterfly so both wings stand out.
I am also doing a butterfly cake to make the invites so that everything co-ordinates.
