    Hello summer! Inspired by the kick-off of warm weather season, I’m stencil printing party invitations for that poolside gathering we all hope to attend. The invitations are bright and easy to make using alphabet stencils; simply download template art for the front side and stencil fun phrases on the flip side!…

    MATERIALS //  invitation template, card stock (8.5” x 11”), utility knife, ruler, cutting mat, colored pencils, 1″ alphabet stencils, acrylic paint (I used Martha Stewart Multi-Surface Satin in shades surf and pond), stencil sponge

    STEPS // 01 PRINT ART  Download and print desired number of invitations onto card stock (click here to download template) and cut out. Write out party specifics using a bright colored pencil.

    02 // STENCIL PHRASES  On the flip side, stencil fun swim inspired phrases like ‘‘dive in”, “jump” or “splish splash.” Once dry, enclose cards in colorful A-7 envelopes and mail to your special guests!

    P.S. I think this technique could easily be used for any type of social gathering. Simply select paint and paper to match your theme!

    • I love the design of the What – When – Where side of the card (the classic fill in the blank with the colored pencil). And the stencil font reminds me of the snack bar signs at my neighborhood pool growing up!
