A Birthday Gift

January 12, 2013

Ashlins-bag-and-cardI attended the first birthday of a friends little girl today and needed to make a card and a matching gift bag.  I used the Topsy Turvy Celebration Stampset.

The bag is made using an envelope.  I cut the length down a little and scored at 1″ on each side and across the bottom.  Once you open the score lines and fold over the triangle at the bottom you have a really roomy bag.  I cut Whisper White card and punched an Extra Large Oval at one end through both pieces before attaching them to the front and back of the bag.  I embossed Pretty in Pink card using the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder and attached a narrow strip of Rose Red card to the top edge.  The Rose Red card has one long edge punched using the Scallop Border Punch.  I stamped the cake layers onto Whisper White card using Primrose Petals ink and Rose Red ink and cut them out.  I stamped the candle image onto Whisper White card using Midnight Muse ink and cut it out.  I stamped happy birthday onto the Whisper White card using Midnight Muse ink.  I attached a narrow piece of Silver Glimmer Paper which has one long edge punched using the Scallop Border Punch above the stamped image.  I attached the cake layers and the candle above the Silver Glimmer Paper.  The image panel is attached to Rose Red card and then the bag front.Ashlin's-birthday-card

To make the card I embossed the top two-thirds of Whisper White card using the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Midnight Muse card.  I embossed the Pretty in Pink card using the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder.  I punched one long edge of Rose Red card using the Scallop Border Punch and attached it behind the top edge of the embossed Pretty in Pink card before attaching it to the card front.  The image panel is created in a similar manner to the one on the bag.  I stamped happy birthday from the Create-A-Cupcake stamp set onto Whisper White card using Midnight Muse ink and cut it using the largest framelit from the Bitty Frames Framelits.  I attached the greeting to the card front with a dimensional in the centre and a Mini Glue Dot at each end.

I think this is a cute duo and that I need to use this stamp set more often, what do you think?

Bye for now,  Kris.
