Default Christmas Invitation

I want to make a "flat screen T.V." invitation. Does anyone have any ideas? My congregation is giving our Pastor a 72' television for Christmas. Since were paying for it through donations....I'd like to hand out an invitation in the shape of an TV inviting them to donate. I envision no more than two layers (since I will be making at least 300 invites. Any ideas will greatly be appreciated.

A rectangle nesting die would allow you to quickly and easily cut a black "frame" for the TV and then you could mount it to a gray card (or nearly any color for that matter). It would be kind of neat but a bit more labor intensive to have the front of the card be cardstock vellum with the black frame mounted on the front. You wording inside would show through the "screen". Looking at my TV now, it's black on black. The frame is shiny but the screen is matte. Creating a vinyl frame or embossing around the edges would give you that look. What a fun idea for an invite!

As my best friend says, "'s cheaper than therapy" to which I add, "Not by much".

My mom was the proud recipient of my first handmade card. Cost $200.
