Bull Rider Birthday Party Invitation

So I finally crossed off the first thing on my party organization list: Designing the invitation cards!!!! If you happened to read my post on how I decided to throw my son a Bull Rider Birthday Party, you know that I typed up a simple to-do list to get started, and making the invitations was on the top of the list.

I am so pleased with how it turned out! Especially since I couldn’t figure out what was the best app on my Mac to design it with. I ended up using Pages. I realized that it would take a lot longer for me to learn to use a new app than just figure out how to do it with what I already know how to use. I’m a life-long Microsoft user and it has taken some time to get used to Apple devices (HATE THEM!!!!…didn’t have a choice though, my husband was adamant about getting a Mac..and I-phones).

Anyway, I started off with the background and chose to use a picture of his favorite bull rider, Renato Nunes. I gave it a blue tint by increasing the opacity and placing a blue box behind the image.

Then I added the PBR World Finals 2017 Logo.

I added a text box with all the Birthday Party info and topped it off with a cropped image of my son in a cowboy hat. I had only 3 pictures in my phone at the time of my son in his cowboy alter ego, that I had to choose from. In order to send out the cards a month in advance I had to use one of those pictures because it wouldn’t give me time to include a professionally taken picture.

I chose the last one and I feel like it came out just perfect! I am so in love with it. Everyone who received it thought it was adorable.
