Easy Cinco de Mayo Card Ideas
I have some Easy Cinco de Mayo Card Ideas for our blog hop, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed creating them for you!
But before I dive into these fun cards I want to say thank you for stopping by and supporting our blog hop. Please be sure to visit all of the crafty bloggers in the hop, make sure you read their giveaway rules, and have fun along the way!
Use Your Ephemera
I made these cute Cinco de Mayo cards with scraps from my stash and fun summer theme ephemera.
Regardless of the occasion, I always add dimension to my cards. I think it gives them a little extra something.
I used Spellbinders Grate Works S2-019 for the iron motif on this card, pop-dotted the cactus for dimension and glued a festive banner on top.
When making your Cinco de Mayo party invitations remember to use fun, bright, happy colors. I highly recommend you go through your scraps! You never know what you might find!
Have Fun with the Envelopes
Your guests will know your party will be a blast when you hand them their invitations in fun decorated envelopes!
What I love about the decorated envelopes is that they can be reused in a number of paper crafting projects.
On this envelope I used a ready-made pinwheel from Hobby Lobby and the banner was created using Spellbinders Lacey Pennants Etched Dies S5-029.
Since I didn’t want anything going to waste, I decided to use the “negative” side of the Spellbinders Grate Works diecut to alter this envelope. I love how it came out!
