For April I decided to send the gift with the first card. I chose to use the gorgeous Raspberry Tart Designer Series Papers (it’s one of the DSP’s available for the Deal of the Week this week) which is one of my favourite.
Yes I made her one of those lovely handbags which I then ended up making for my daughter Lauren’s Birthday Party gift bags. However I did not put the same things inside…..lol
I wasn’t too sure about this card when I started it as I could not find a sentiment stamp that I thought fit. Then I had a brainwave and remembered that I’d only just purchase the Alphabet die set for my big shot. I think the ‘hi’ ended up finishing off the card really well.
Now what did I put inside the bag. Well there was lollies but of the Chocolate kind.
I filled up a medium sized cello bag with Lindt White Chocolates and made a matching bag topper to coordinate with the handbag & card using the Top Note Die (so loving my Big Shot). There was a roll of 1/4” grosgrain ribbon and a pack of Build-A-Brads. Just a few things on her Wishlist.
I just hope she’s been using them……
For the second card this month I used another of her favourite stamp sets and that is Pocket Silhouettes. This was one of the first sets I had to have when the IB&C was released last year but I must admit I haven’t used it a great deal. I think that’s an indication not that I don’t really like it but that I have too much stuff……. Is there such a thing??
I’ve used Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette and Soft Suede on this card. Very plain I feel but I was still quite happy with it.
Now tomorrow will be the final months items and I’ll let you know who my partner was that I sent to.
Till next time…..
