Birthdays Gifts for Monica

Yesterday was the lovely Monica's Birthday. Just look at all her lovely birthday cards here
http://monicas-passions.blogspot.com/
Here is the card and gift I made for her




All are made from Stampin' Up! stamps and products. I just love how everything coordinates and matches. The Card I have made in Rose Red with a little Regal Rose card. The background has been stamped using the background stamp in Rose Red ink from the Hostess Set Oh, So Lovely. The panel was also stamped like this then mounted onto Regal Rose card stock. I the pricked a line along each side. The flowers are from the Mixed Bouquet set. I stamped the petal flower six times onto Very Vanilla card stock in Rose Red, cut out and layered two images on top of each other and placed a red rhinestone brad in the middle. Then attached to the panel.

The little box of cards, I got from a tutorial on Andrea Walfords Blog. Here is the link http://andreawalford.com/?page_id=85 This blog is full of wonderful creations have a browse around while you're there.

Again it is made from Rose Red card. I made a slight adjustment on the lid measurements on my box. I added 1 inch to Andreas measurements then scored 1 inch all around instead of the half inch Andrea suggests. I just liked my lid being a little deeper. The cards are the little Stampin' Up! love notes. These are 3" x 3" cards and envelopes that I have made up into little 'Thank you' notes using various SU Stamps.

The other Birthday card I made is for my friend Jo, who's birthday is today, so I will share that card perhaps tomorrow.

Absolutely stunning - and I agree about the extra depth for the lid.

Thank you for sharing your creations. xx

Yes indeed your cards coordinate very well. The colours and results are lovely. I'm an SU nut too. I follow Andrea's blog too. She is very creative too.
