Good morning and welcome to Saturday! What are all of you up to this weekend? I have the bridal shower today and a friend’s party tomorrow. I also have a ton of cards to make so I will be busy but in my favorite way! A few weeks ago it was my friend Danielle’s Birthday and here is what I made for her as a little gift set. The card and the box both use the Affection Collection Stamp Set, it is definitely one of my favorites from the Holiday Catalog. The base of the card is Basic Gray that I stamped in Basic Gray with the Distressed Dots Background Stamp. I was unable to go to Convention this year but a very good friend of mine was lucky enough to go and gave me the Convention Stamp Set I Am… and I love it. That is where the main greeting for the card comes from and it is stamped in Primrose Petals and cut out with the Labels Collection Framelits Dies. A piece of Vellum cut out with the Labels Collection Framelits is placed behind it and mounted to the card with Stampin Dimensionals on top of a piece of Primrose Petals that I used the Essentials Paper -Piercing Pack on and flagged the ends. The you are is also from that set and is stamped in Primrose Petals and cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies and mounted to a piece of Primrose Petals that is punched out with the Small Oval Punch. Two Basic Jewels Pearls on the top and bottom give a little bling. The Happy Birthday is from the From My Heart Stamp Set, stamped in Primrose Petals and cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies. A piece of Primrose Petals 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon is placed behind it. The winged heart is from the Affection Collection Stamp Set and is again stamped in Primrose Petals and a piece of Champagne Glimmer Paper punched out with the Small Heart Punch is adhered to the center with a Mini Glue Dot and a Stampin’ Dimensional holds it on the card.
Next up we have the box which is made using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool. The top of the box starts with a piece of Whisper White that is cut out with the Floral Frames Framelits Dies and Embossed with the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Next up is a piece of Primrose Petals that is cut out with the Labels Collection Framelits Dies and I used the Festive Paper-Piercing Pack to pierce the edge. On top of that is a rosette that is made using the Simply Scored from a piece of Howlstooth and Scaringbone Designer Series Paper. A piece of Vellum stamped with the celebrate banner from the Priority Mail Host(ess) Stamp Set in Basic Gray and Punched out with the 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch is placed under a duplicate of the wings from the card.
Finally we have the little initial magnet. I stamped some images from the Affection Collection Stamp Set in Basic Gray and Primrose Petals on Whisper White. The initial is from the Lovely Letters Alphabet Stamp Set and is stamped in Primrose Petals and punched out with the 1″ Square Punch. I punched a piece of Basic Gray out with the 1 1/4″ Square Punch to back it and adhered it to the Whisper White. It is all placed in a acrylic photo magnet. For a little extra coordination I stamped the tissue paper with coordinating stamps.
It seems to me like I tried to use as many different items as I could! I never really pay attention to the stuff I am using while I am creating the project but when I go to blog it I see all that I used. LOL! I hope that you enjoyed seeing Danielle’s Birthday gift set as much as did. Thank you very much for visiting and have a wonderful day! 🙂
