Party Invitations using Free Vintage Images & Fonts!

Spent a day putting together some party invitations for a special lady who's 70 tomorrow.  She's having her party at the weekend and I thought she really deserved something special!

I used some C5 white cards, Colorcore Cardstock, white Bazzill and the last of the beautiful Prima Morning Song, Happy Go Lucky paper which I had in the shop.

The vintage image on the front is from a great website called Sensibility.com and the Vogue vintage patterns from the 1950's are here.

Inside the card I printed the details of the party with a brilliant quote I got free from Quote Garden:

" The man who doesn't relax and hoot a few hoots voluntarily, now and then,

is in great danger of hooting hoots and standing on his head

for the edification of the pathologist and trained nurse, a little later on."  ~ Elbert Hubbard

The font is called Harlow Solid Italic and it's available from some of the free and commercial font sites although you might already have it on your computer.

Here's a close up:
