Happy Birthday Jae
My granddaughter Jae celebrates her 6th birthday today. You realise how old you are getting when you see your grandchildren growing up so quickly.
Anyway, Jae is like many youngsters her age and absolutely adores the movie Frozen. I think she and her sister know every word to every song in the movie. I wanted to create a card for her with a Frozen them and used my favourite medium to find this adorable Curvy Keepsake Box on Pinterest. Suzanne very kindly shared how she created her “Olaf” and I followed her directions to create my box. We gave Jae some earrings and this was the perfect presentation box. Thanks Suzanne.
I decided to follow her idea and create a card with a punch art Olaf as well. My background is created by stamping the “tree decoration” dots from the Festival of Trees stamp set using Versamark ink onto Whisper White card. I embossed with White embossing powder and then sponged the whole area using Lost Lagoon ink. I think it kind of looks like falling snow – maybe!! The body of this Olaf is a 2-1/2″ Circle of Whisper White, the rest is as per Suzanne’s instructions.
Inside the card, I created a mask and added more “snow”, leaving plenty of room for my message. The tag is punched with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch1. Again I masked the bottom of the tag and added some “snow”. I wrapped Jae’s other present in the brown paper that Stampin’ Up! kindly supplies me with in every order. I wrapped the parcel with Lost Lagoon Stitched Satin Ribbon and tied a knot. I fed the tails of the ribbon through the tag from the back and pulled them tight. This keeps my tag in place and adds a little more embellishment.
I’m pleased to say that the gifts and packaging met with complete approval from Jae and all the children. Thank Goodness!
Bye for now,
