Hello! Did you enjoy your weekend? This is our last "free" weekend; school starts tomorrow for DD and Tuesday for DS. Where did the summer go? We had a busy, fun-packed day which included celebrating my Mom's 65th birthday. This is the card and gift box I made for her. The box is 1" deep and is lined with warm and natural batting. I really like making these little boxes; they are simple and it's fun to personalize them too. My Mom had seen one I made not too long ago and made a big fuss over it, so I knew I needed to make one for her.
Here's a closer shot of the card. (The quality of the pictures isn't very good; they were taken in the breezeway and the lighting wasn't the best.) I used Jen del Muro's SFYTT and a Pure Innocence image that I hadn't had the chance to ink up yet. The little gal is colored with Prismas and I paper pieced her dress. I really had fun with the crown; it is cut out and has 2 coats of the "Antique Linen" Distress Stickles. It has a great textured finish. I embellished the card simply with buttons and a fun "garment pin" from Making Memories Vintage Findings. I am liking the quirky combo of the rose and orange....
Here's a close-up to show the crown and fun pin. I was going for a shabby-chic look here, but I still can't seem to master it.... Even though I am pleased with this card, it is frustrating!
