'Lil Sister's March Birthday Card

Hello and welcome back...

I would like to share with you a birthday card that I made for my 'little' sister Ashley for her March birthday. Not only have I decorated the inside of the card to match the outside, I have also made a box and decorated it for the card to go inside...

I have used a gorgous, cute bunny stamp from Sugar Nellie's range and coloured with Primsa pencils, these were really nice to use, quite waxy and smooth to blend over the card. Also added large flowers, a heart charm and LOTV sentments, adding matts using my Slice machine, which is a dream to use and is so light and portable. I love using it...

For the inside of the card, I made a couple of tags using embossing folders and a Martha Stewart punch and distress with distress inks Brushed Corduroy and Antique Linen. The paper I used are from The Glitter Stack from DCWV - gorgous thick and glittery papers.

Finally, I created a handmade box and decorated with wet embossed flourishes and used my heat gun. The card fits nicely inside...
I hope you have enjoyed looking at my creation as much as I had fun making it.
Until my next post...HAPPY CRAFTING!!!
