Quinceañera Invitations

The Hispanic version of a Sweet Sixteen is actually celebrated at age 15, and is called a Quinceañera. I had someone asking about a larger invitation than the standard A2 cards I usually make, so after some surfing, I came up with these rough ideas. They are generally simple, and have a lot of room to be spiffed up, but I thought they are pretty neat! Apparently pocket fold invitations are all the rage now, and these include a 4-bar card for the RSVP.

This first one is my take on the pocketfold card featured in the new Stampin Up catalog. I like theirs better, but I didn't have directions, so I was making it up as I went along. The lace trim is a Martha Stewart Punch, and the Quinceañera stamp is from Stampin Up! and the high heel is a Studio G. This particular card fits in a 5x7 envelope, but an envelope for the RSVP wouldn't fit, so I would probably make them a bit bigger, and either find specialty envelopes, or just have them hand delievered.

This next one is using the instructions from This one is pretty versatile, because you can have two panels of text, or use one for a photo. Again, I kept it pretty simple, just for a sample, but I think the possibilities are endless! I think with both of the invites, they would look so much better in a solid color (not white), with some coordinating patterned paper. This stamp is another Stampin Up! set, from last season. This one is closer to the A2 size, when folded.
