I’d love to hear any thoughts on this invitation prototype. I made it on my Pazzles die cut machine, trying to mimic some of the traditional designs seen in papel picado. I’m planning on using Cobalt Blue cutouts on Cream Puff backgrounds (from Cards & Pockets) with the text on another Cream Puff square, glued on top. I haven’t designed the text parts yet, but want to start cutting & gluing the backs pretty soon.

Two other notes – I’ve already removed the cutouts from the birds’ wings because they were so small and didn’t cut very cleanly (plus, I don’t think they added much to the overall design). Also, for this practice run, I cut out the square for the text, thinking that I’d print on the background instead of using a third layer… But, since the paper is thin enough, I’m thinking a third layer will add a bit more weight to the overall invitation.

I love this cut out! I think this is great because this will add layers to your invitation, which makes is more professional instead of something that s completely flat. You did an wonderful job. Would love to see the complete product.

Hey I know this was posted 2 years ago so this is a long shot but I just got the pazzles inspiration (is that what you used to make this?) & I was wondering how you made this file or do you have it saved would there be a way you could possibly share it with me? I’d love to use this for invitations to my parents 25th wedding anniversary!! Also I’m new to the whole cutting machine thing (I haven’t even taken it out if the box yet!)do you know what settings I should use for something like this (blade length, pressure etc). Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
