ready for takeoff

here is a look at the finished airplane invitations, ready to be sent out. as i mentioned in a previous post, the birthday boy flew corsair fighter planes, and landed them on an aircraft carrier called the oriskany. the box that contains the invitation is styled around the aircraft carrier, and holds toy corsair planes.
this telegram inspired invitation is presented inside an airmail envelope tacked to the "runway". 
 each airmail envelope is typed with the guests names.
 labels remind guests to keep a secret.
 for postage... i used a collection of americana themed stamps, rather than a printed label, to give it more of a vintage feel.
 the glider and invitation sit on the aircraft carrier inspired runway. the whole package is be sent out to guests as a notification for a undoubtedly wonderful party.
