Karen's Birthday Blog Hop


Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion and Karen's Birthday Blog Hop!! I was so thrilled and happy to participate in a hop to honor my blogger buddy Karen. So, grab a cup of coffee and come check out these amazing inspirational projects!  Be sure to stop and wish Karen a Happy Birthday!



If you've arrived from Amy's Crafting Space, you are in the right place. If you have stumbled upon this,
please be sure to CLICK HERE to start at the beginning with Diana from DL.ART. Make sure you stop by to wish the birthday girl, Karen  a Happy Birthday at the end of the hop!!!  She will also have some yummy blog candy up for grabs! 


Here is my project: I have made a pretty gift card set to have on hand for some upcoming birthdays to give as a small gift. 




I cut the  french fry box at 6 1/4 which is fit to page from the TBBM2 cartridge. I added a label on the front using the Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Rectangles die along with the Spellbinders Classic Rectangles die. The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper-Birthday Crazy set. I cut the flower from the Lacy Labels cartridge-that's right:) It is the heart shaped-image #47 using layer shift key. I cut it at real dial size 2 3/4, inked it with Time Holtz-old paper and added a rhinestone to the center. I topped it off with a fun double ribbon, double bow using crinkle ribbon from Little Scrap Pieces which I had won and a little tag from My Creative Time ~teeny tag greetings set.



I added 4 cards inside the box. They are 3 1/2 x 5 and includes the envelopes. The background is embossed using a sizzix folder, then layered an accent piece using Spellbinders Moraccan Accents die.  The small circle message stamp is from Hero Arts and the butterfly is from EK Success layering Butterfly punch.


Here they are ready to go inside the box:)



I am thinking this would be fun to make around Christmas time for gift giving. What do you think?
