Birthday Invitations

We had our kids' birthday party earlier this month, with the kids' birthdays only 5 weeks apart we decided to throw a joint party (with 2 cakes of course!) but Charlotte is at an age where she chooses a few friends to invite from preschool, and I didn't want those people to feel obliged to bring presents for Jack too so I needed a way to have individual invitations for her friends but still joint invitations for family & family friends. The solution I came up with was to do double sided invitations (since they had both chosen separate cake themes anyway) This was Jack's side of the invitation, a circus theme based on his choice of a clown cake.
Stamps: Party This Way
Ink: Tempting Turquoise
Cardstock: Big Top Birthday DSP, Old Olive, Real Red, Whisper White
Punches: Scallop Border, Petite Pennants Builder Punch

This is Charlotte's side of the invitation, she chose a dinosaur cake ("pink with sprinkles!") and has reminded me about her request every day since May, so when I saw Dinoroar in the new catalogue it was at the top of my wishlist!
Stamps: Dinoroar
Ink: Regal Rose, Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive
Cardstock: Old Olive (Reverse side of Jack's), Melon Mambo, Whisper White
