Happy Birthday Abi

December 16, 2014

Abis-gift-2014Today is my granddaughter Abi’s 10th birthday.  She is very excited because she is getting her own flute to replace the one she hired from the school last year.   This is the card and tag I made to go with her gifts.

I cut an oval from Whisper White card and embossed it using the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder before attaching it to scored and folded Smoky Slate card.  I also cut a frame to go around the oval from Melon Mambo card.  I stamped the image from the In This Together stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured the image using Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Smoky Slate and Skin Tone BlendibilitiesAbis-card-2014-2I cut the image out using a smaller oval and attached it using dimensionals inside the oval frame in the embossed Whisper White card.  Now as Abigail is only turning 10, I thought it best to cover up with martini glass in the image.  I stamped the leaf image from the Hello There stamp set onto Whisper White card using Old Olive ink.  I also stamped the small flower using Melon Mambo ink and cut out both images.  I attached them over the martini glass and although they are probably a little too large, I think they look ok.Abis-card-2014  I stamped “happy birthday” from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set onto Whisper White card using Melon Mambo ink and cut it out using the smallest die in the Bitty Banner Framelits.  I cut another banner from Melon Mambo card using the banner die in the Circle Card Thinlets.  I attached the two banners together and then to the card front using a dimensional in the centre and Glue Dots on the ends.

Inside I kept the card pretty plain to leave room to write my message.  I embossed a 2.5cm wide strip of Whisper White card using the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder and attached it Melon Mambo card.Abis-gift-2014-2

The gift is wrapped in the brown paper that Stampin’ Up! so thoughtfully supplies with my orders. The tag is stamped and coloured in the same way as the image on the card.  I used the Scallop Tag Topper Punch to punch the top of the tag.  I used some Gold curling ribbon to tie around the parcel and attach the tag.

Bye for now,

Kris
