Monica's birthday card and gift!

My scraps are getting a workout lately! I decided to make a joyfold card with this one. For my followers who are Kaszazz consultants, check out the instructions to that on my workshop- 2H248. I once again used the CB butterfly and double layered it. I really like this effect, so it takes a lot for me to move on. I'll try for the next item. I used My girl papers and sticky bling flourish to outline the square. On the blue square, I stamped the dainty flourish stamp with watermark to create a subtle image. The purple CB piece has had acrylic paint wiped over it to give it a relief look.
The tin I picked up recently at the Picture to page show in Geelong. They had also decorated it with that paper, so naturally I had to have it too! I filled it with choccies and then tied an organdy ribbon around. Voila! Instant gift.
I"ve decided I need to make up some spare gifts, because these sorts of things are what I'm giving out to friends this year for their birthdays. Now if I could just get organized to make cards for family members and actually remember to post them- then perfection would be mine!!!! ( I think that's where the wicked laugh fits in.) Anyway, enjoy and I hope I've inspired you to create today.

  1. Here's an idea - make your brother and brother-in-law's birthday cards (both April) and put them on your blog. That way you don't have to actually snail mail them and it won't matter if they are late !
