Birthday Box

My hubby's birthday was last week so I made this little box to wrap his present in (a new watch!). It was just the perfect size! Then of course I had to decorate it!

I did make the box as big as I could and still have it fit on my Cameo mat but his watch just fit & it worked great!

I used:
Elongated Gable box & Party Shaker Tags (not made as a shaker!) from SVG Cutting Files
Birthday treat tag stamp from Jaded Blossom

Thanks for looking!

Birthday card

Hubby's birthday is tomorrow so I made a card for him! I tend to have trouble with masculine cards but I love how this one turned out! It's all die cuts & stamps on this one.

I made the background by stamping  a little star stamp with watermark ink & embossing with clear embossing powder. You really can't tell in the photo's but there is gold Shimmer Spry all over the background too. I also inked all the edges in Distress Ink Vintage photo.

I used:
Spellbinders A2 Curved Matting Basics A for the card base & insert on inside of the card
Lots of Jaded Blossom stuff:
Journal Calendar stamp (little star stamp in background)
Happy birthday is from Sweet Stamp Shop Elegant Sentiments
Paper is from My Mind's Eye Boy Crazy 6x6 stack. 

Thanks for looking!
