Fiesta Invitation Inspired by Mexican Loteria Cards Plus Free Printable

Fiesta Invitation Inspired by Mexican Loteria Cards by B.Nute productions
On one of my vacations to Mexico, I had the treat of playing loteria while lounging in the pool. It was a treat because, a) I was lounging in the pool with a cold beverage, and b) it was fun playing a game while swimming! Loteria is a Latin American game similar to bingo. An announcer names calls off a word (and/or number) and you fill the space on your card if you have it until you win. One big difference, though, is the loteria cards have images on them, not just numbers. I've always loved the look of the illustrations and drawings, and also found the objects/items on the cards to be quite curious. There are typical objects like fish, sun, and moon, but then there are others like skull, hand, and mermaid that seem like pretty unique choices. I guess this is what makes the game so cool for me!

With Cinco de Mayo around the corner, I had a fun day designing my own set of loteria cards. They turned out so colorful and festive, I thought they'd make a great invitation (see image at top). Also, I've included some below as free printables, perfect for tags for a goodie bag or strung around a bottle of tequila for your hostess gift at a fiesta! Enjoy.
