Dinner Party Invitations

After nearly a decade-long hiatus, I threw a dinner party! I enjoy making invitations with the menu and theme of the meal incorporated into the invitation. My husband and I made a big batch of slow-cooked pork carnitas, pico de gallo, salsa and guacamole and our six friends filled in the rest of the Mexican-themed fixings.

You're Invited!

I love my Cricut Explore and the Design Space software! It made pulling these invitations together so easy. All I did was search for things like “banner,” “you’re invited,” and “taco” and I found what I was looking for. My monthly membership allows me access to nearly all the thousands of pre-designed images, so I don’t even need to own all the cartridges pull images from!

Dinner Party Invitations for Three Couples

The base of each card came from a box of card bases and envelopes from My Mind’s Eye and the cardstock used for the cut shapes are all from Close to My Heart because their paper cuts so smoothly with the Cricut. I’m hoping to use up the rest of my DCWV textured cardstock so I can switch over to only using the high-quality Exclusive Cardstock CTMH offers. Cute Little Paper Tacos

Aren’t these layered paper tacos adorable? I think they’re so cute!!

Thanks for reading my blog!

  • Hi there, such a cute card! I tried looking for “you’re invited” in the cricut library and I could not find it! Do you know what cartridge it’s from?
