Renaissance Style Invitation or Card

'Tis a night of revels

That is how I imagine a modern version of a party invitation from Merrie Olde England might read. It is a shortened quote from a Shakespeare play, one the Studio found online. (Not that we haven't anything of the Bard of Avon's in our stash, but if you want to know the truth, time was short)

Here is a fun bit of Renaissance music to listen to whilst looking over our new design.

For FOOD for a feast, banquet, or mere "scrambling supper," we highly recommend you read Madge Lorwin's incomparable volume entitled, "Dining with William Shakespeare." 
I myself have tested a number of her recipes. All were tasty, especially her gingerbread, but if you don't like eels for supper, then mind the one for "Eels, Spitchcocked."
Her book may be purchased online and also found at libraries.

Below we display both the outside and inside portions of a possible Renaissance style invitation or card for our guests. This will shortly be added to by a few other items for your party or gaming pleasure. For today, you may choose to visit our PPSPartyGear™category for some fun mask blanks  (that is a Link). These we prepared for you a few years back. They may be decorated with frippery and feathers, or left simply as is.

As for our invitations below, all our guests have to do is simply cut away the gray portion evenly in both graphics once printed. This card is sized to fit an A2 sized envelope. Each printable is for standard sized business paper. We recommend using your local copy center or extension office for this print or copy, as it will use quite a lot of ink or toner.

Please regard others' copyrights while you enjoy your
Happy Creativity!
