I’m on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog today showcasing this card I made for my parents’ anniversary. Stop by and check it out!
Birthday Card in a Box
My baby girl turned 21 on Monday.
I wanted to celebrate with something a little more special than just a simple card. So, I made her a card in a box.
I got the directions/measurements for making the box from Amanda Sevall Designs. Click here to get the directions.
I used leftover paper to cover the box. I added an anchor die cut and anchor washi tape because she anchors are special to her (they remind her of her brother who is in the Navy).
I stamped 21 with a Close To My Heart stamp set and then used a circle punch to cut them out. The Happy Birthday stamp is from Just Rite; the flowers and leaves are McGill punches; the feathers are from Bella Blvd.; the flourishes are from a Sizzix die and the heart is from Linnie Blooms.
Valentine’s Make & Take
Every Saturday, Capture A Memory in Flint Township offers a make and take for a small fee — usually $2 to $5 (free for members).
The projects are designed by staff members and this year, I will be taking a turn each month. My “normal” make and take will be the fourth Saturday of every month, but in January I swapped so I will be hosting the make and take this Saturday.
I plan to incorporate techniques into my projects as much as possible. So, for my first one, I decided to work with vellum. I used an embossing folder to create the pattern on the vellum and used the Tiny Attacher to adhere it. I added some ribbon from May Arts and a stamp from Just Rite. Inside, I also included some paper to cover the back side of the staples.
I hope you will stop by the store from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday to make a card of your own!
