A Birthday Gift

I thought I would show you the note card set I made for my partner's step mum. I got the inspiration from Mel Stampz Blog, see link over there ---->I made up the bag as per the template and then cuttlebugged a coordinating pink paper and cut to size and adhered to the front of the bag. I added some pink ribbon and a few little gems. The flowers are from my stash. the Note Cards are approx 4x4" and I used the same Cuttlebug embossing folder on them as I did for the front of the bag. I used a pretty floral decoupage sheet I picked up in town to finish off the cards.

Here Is the Birthday Card that I made for her. The shape of the card is taken from the new Nesties Lable Dies that are out and I so want LOL. I Printed the pattern onto the card then cut the shape from a template I had earlier made. As the card has to be folded and I wanted the shape to follow on all sides I cut a matching piece from the card and to add some interest I cut the straight edge with shaping scissors and then punched with a ribbon threading punch and threaded the red ribbon. I then watercoloured the little hedgie and used nesties to cut and emboss the card and then mounted him on to the card. I added flowers from my stash and a rub on sentiment.

I have entered this Card into the
