I have two little boys who are over the moon for all things Pokémon! It was pretty much a no brainer that the next one to have a birthday was going to have a Pokémon theme and, doing what I do, I designed him an invitation to go with the party theme. In this case, his very own Pokémon trading card invitation!
My oldest was turning eight and really wanted his own Pokémon trainer card. I used a card he had as a template and copied it as best I could. I think it came out pretty great! This is our first birthday invitation to include a photo. and he wanted to be sure he was holding a Pokéball and his favorite character was included in the photo. A little “photoshopping” helped out there.
I wanted these to look like actual trading cards so they needed a front and a back. So they print with the front and back of the card right next to each other on a sheet of cardstock. Then I just had to trim down the card itself.
To make the front of the card the front and the back of the card the back I needed to fold the card in half. I used a paper scorer to be sure I got a perfect line. After scoring the paper, fold in half and smooth the edge down.
Use adhesive along the inside edges of the card then press together firmly.
Finally, use a corner punch on all 4 corners of the card.
Tip: Keep the corner punch on your table top while punch through the cards. If it starts to be difficult to punch through try punching through aluminum foil. It will sharpen the punch.
We had our Pokémon birthday party this past weekend so I can’t wait to share it with you on Wednesday!
And, as always, these invitations have been added to my Etsy shop for all the other little Pokémon fans.
