Day 11: Peter Pan Party Invite

So we are coming up on Ben's 7th birthday and he's randomly decided that he must have a Peter Pan party. Now, he's a fan of Jake and the Neverland Pirates, and he's seen Hook, but this party must be Peter Pan themed. Until a day or so ago he's never even seen the actual Peter Pan movie (thank you Sarah!), but he's a boy who knows what he likes. Even if he's never seen it.
So the invites must be going out, and since I'm crunched for time they needed to be simple. And since I'm me...they needed glitter. And Fussy cutting. I do not have a Peter Pan cricut cartridge, so I went off to Pinterest to find some downloadable help. I pulled this cute Neverland Map and a Peter Pan Shadow (pinned to my Partytime board if you need them).
I edited the map with PicMonkey. I added a swoopy shape over the bottom half, turned it green and took the transparency down to 50%. Then I added in the text. I did the title first in White, and then a duplicate text in Black so I could stack them. Then I typed in the party details. I mounted the whole thing onto Desert Sand CS and added a band of Gold Shimmer trim. I fussy cut the Pan shadows and glued them onto the invite. Finally I added some stardust glitter gel (for Tink's sake). 

Ben was thrilled, friends will be invited, and now I'm moving on to researching gluten free, dairy free cupcake options. And cupcake toppers!
