Birthday Gift Set


I used Purple Cow's, Craft Geek Spring Paper Punch to create the border on the card.  The gift box was a free One-Piece Gift Box SVG collection from SVG Cuts. The leaves are a cut from my Making Memories Slice. =)

Here's a closer look at the punched border.

Here's the border before I trimmed off the strips.  The guide on the punch base makes it super easy to create borders or paper lace, as you will see on my next project.


This is another card I created using the same paper punch from Purple Cows to create paper lace.  The fabulous image is a rubber stamp from Fresh Brewed Designs.  The gorgeous crinkle ribbon is by 3 Girl Jam.

all I can say is WOW!!! These are all just so gorgeous!!! I love the first set. They are so soft looking. The look powdery and fuzzy .... like homemade paper would feel. I love he way you layered the border and popped sections up.

Your FBD card is perfect! I love the pinks and how the deep brown makes your awesome diecut piece stand out. What a fabulous BG!!! I have some felt that is similar to that that I purchased way back and never used. Imagine my surprise when I Saw it was something you diecut yourself!!! LOVE IT!

So happy to be a part of this hop with you. *saying it again at the last hop stop * HAPPY BIRTHDAY CELESTE~!!!! *

HUGS
