Another Great Birthday

Hi there

Finally getting round to blogging a card and gift box I made back in April!  Never mind - better late than never.

I saw this card on Lynn Weiss's blog and fell in love with the monochromatic colour scheme she has used - I have CASE'd it exactly as she had designed it.  The Hardwood stamp is inked in Island Indigo and stamped on Island Indigo card stock.  It gives such a cool look.  The words are heat embossed with Pool Party Embossing Powder - once directly onto the card front and then again on Bermuda Bay card stock.  The banner is then cut out and adhered with dimensionals.  I love the finishing touch of the Candy Dots in the corners.

This is one of my favourite 3D boxes - a clamshell box - and of course it was filled with chocolates :)

And the coordinating gift
