Happy Birthday Jae

October 30, 2017

My granddaughter Jae celebrated her 9th birthday yesterday with a trip to Aussie World.  It was a perfect, sunny day and Jae and her brother and sister had a lot of fun (I might add so did her Mum and Dad).  So I thought I would share the card and gift box I made for her.  I punched a strip of Peekaboo Peach card using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and attached it behind the top edge a piece of Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper which I cut with the top edge on the diagonal.  The designer series paper is attached to the bottom of Whisper White card before attaching to scored and folded Smoky Slate card.  I cut Whisper White card using an oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies.  The Whisper White oval is attached to a Peekaboo Peach scalloped oval cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies before attaching to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped “happy birthday” from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I punched both ends of the greeting using the Triple Banner Punch.  The Whisper White card is attached to a Peekaboo Peach banner and then the card front with dimensionals under both ends.  I punched the pieces for the “cat” from Smoky Slate card using the Fox Builder PunchThe face is created by stamping the image from the Foxy Friends stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.   I stamped the “leg image” from the Foxy Friends stamp set onto the punched body using Smoky Slate ink.  I sponged lightly around the edges of all the Smoky Slate pieces using Smoky Slate ink.  I punched the tail piece from Whisper White card using the Fox Builder Punch and the ears from Pink Pirouette card using the same punch.  The pieces are attached to the Whisper White oval using Tombow Multi Purpose glue.  Lastly I added three large Basic Rhinestones to the top left and bottom right hand corners.

To decorate the inside of the card, I punched Peekaboo Peach card using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch.  The punched card is attached behind one long edge of a piece of the same Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper before attaching to Whisper White card.

I needed a box to house my gift and wanted it to co-ordinate with the card.  I love the Window Box but it is a little too short for what I wanted so I downloaded a free tutorial from Kirsteen Gill which showed how to adjust the height of the box.  Once I had cut the pieces, I attached the same Painted Autumn Designer Series paper to Peekaboo Peach card to decorate the sides of my box.  I cut a Peekaboo Peach panel and a Whisper White panel for the top of the box.  I attached a piece of Peekaboo Peach 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding underneath the panels for the top of the box to make it easier for Jae to open.  I created another cat in the same manner as the card to finish decorating the top of the box.

I am so happy with this cute card and matching gift box.  I have not used this stamp set, matching dies or for that matter the Window Box much at all, but when I do I am so impressed with how gorgeous my creations turn out.

Happy Birthday for yesterday Jae, so happy we were able to spend an amazing day with you.

      Thanks Vicky. I’m pretty sure she loved what was inside the box the most!
