The invitations themselves were cut from the Plantin cartridge at 5-inches. From there, we used the Make the Cut for the words and shadow for "its a party". The party hat was cut from one of the pre-loaded cartridges on my E2 with a little flower for the pom pom.
Now, with this being a bowling party, we used the "strike" svg from My Scrap Chick http://myscrapchick.com/paperpiecing1.htm It is an adorable, easy to cut file. We did use a marker though for the stripes on the bowling pin rather than using the tiny little pieces! She wanted it to be boingy!!! This was achieved by adding a strip of paper glued on the one side of the card and attached the "strike" that it actually bounces when the invitation is opened! I had an invitation stamp which was stamped on the inside for her to put the information for the party!!!
I hope you enjoy and let me tell you that kids love to craft and with little supervision have a great time with the cricut!
Hugs and love,
