Cub Scout Blue & Gold Banquet invitations

I wanted to share the invitations I made for some special guests that we invite each year to our Cub Scout Pack's Blue & Gold Banquet. This is a pot-luck style dinner where we award a lot of badges and our oldest scouts will formally "cross over" to join Boy Scouts. We also invite a few people associated with the church that charters our Pack, and I made 3 of these invitation to send to them.

The color combo is PTI's Enchanted Evening, Harvest Gold and Kraft - a perfect Cub Scout color scheme! The Fleur de Lis is from the Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Accents set. The circle and pinked circle are PTI's Limitless Layers. Then I used Mat Stack 5 and Argyle Socks Patterned Paper, matted with Mat Stack 5 Layerz. 


I added a tone-on-tone pattern to the small circle with the smallest diamond lined pattern from A Little Argyle, and impressed the large yellow panel with the Picnic Plaid impression plate, after stamping the sentiment from Autumn Acorns. The pinking shears border die cuts set off the main panel, and tie together with the pinked circle mat.


We are looking forward to our banquet later this week, and my oldest Ryan *sniff* will become a Boy Scout! Hopefully mama won't get all teary-eyed! :)

Thanks for looking!

What a nice invitation! And yes, mama will get teary-eyed- I did just reading your post, remembering when our little guy was a Cubbie. At the cross-over the Boy Scouts took off all the beltloops and awards the Cubbies had earned, and ds was so distressed as he had worked so hard for it all. But he got to work and made rank and earned lots of badges, then made Eagle at 16. All those fabulous Scout experiences gave him direction in college, where he is now a Jr. So go ahead and shed tears of bittersweet pride- just make sure someone else takes the pictures so they don't all turn out blurry! ;P

Fantastic! So very cool. Your boys must be so proud when their mommy makes such kick butt cards. I can see them grinning now. Bless. I love the font in that stamp set. It's amongst my favorite actually. Great choice. Amazing card.
