I can't name this "REDNECK" if I'm not honest and show you my work area.....
I used Microsoft Publisher to create the actual words on theinvite, then printed them on blue paper. I glued them onto the lime greencardstock, then laminated everything. I grabbed the pictures I wanted to use and copied them the amount of times I needed. In this case, I made 16 invitations total. I used publisher to draw a circle around the photo before printing, so that gave me a guide. After printing, I laminated the whole sheet, then cut around the circle. The Redneck came out in me, when I used a fingernail file to buff the edges to smooth them....Hey, you gotta do what you gotta do.....
I found these cute stickers from Target for $1.99, so I bought 3 sheets. They are positioned on a small block of adhesive to make them raised off the paper and the tail is made from pipe cleaner! Love Them!!
Next, I used a hot glue gun to position the rounded picure of Hootie
After that, I applied the monkey and used a hole punch to make two holes for the ribbon to slide through. I tied the ribbon, twisting as I pulled so the polka dot side is visible.
I printed an envelope pattern from online, and used the lime cardstock. You can find the blog here for the envelope. (Really good ideas there)
I used some of the same blue paper to add color on the inside of the envelope.
I must admit, when it was all said and done, the cardstock was to heavy, so I reversed and used the blue paper as the envelope with a strip of green on the inside.
The invitation fit perfectly....
Last, I added a touch of the polka dot ribbon for the back.
