Nancy Drew Birthday Party, Here We Come!
One down... six thousand to go. Well, maybe not quite that many.
For this invitation, I scanned the front and back of a Nancy Drew book to get color and text placement ideas. Then, I took some very silly photos of my daughter peeking around a bedroom closet doorway.
In photoshop, I tried (unsuccessfully) to give the photo a more "painterly" quality, and ended up with something not very close to what I envisioned but what I spent far less time trying to achieve. Then, using Illustrator, I created the yellow boxes, text and bar code.
Next, after a simple upload to CostcoPhotoCenter.com, I will glue/tape the two 5x7 photos back to back and mail off in a nice white envelope.
