Scott's Masters Recital Invitation

Hey Again,


It has been an assembly line here in Micki's Studio on this Sunday afternnoon.  I made ten recital invitations for my son's Masters of Music Recital at Yale in April.  Can't you just hear the pride in my typing!!!






For his invitation, Scott requested that I make something on the formal side but not too stuffy so I made something that fits his personality.




I started with a black DCWV #10 gate fold card .



Here are all the supplies that I used.......











Thank you for visiting me today and if you are in New Haven, Connecticut on April 3, 2010..... you are cordially invited to the recital!!
