This gift box was made for a friend of my youngest son who was celebrating his eleventh birthday - we popped a large bar of a chocolate and a crisp bank note inside! I love the intense blue and the scuffed look of the grid paper and the way the paper used for the band looks a bit like a tyre mark! If you love this designer paper range, don't miss out - it's only available to order this week then it'll be gone forever!
The Happy Birthday tag is from Perfect Punches which cuts out quickly and easily with the large oval punch. I love the way lots of the Stampin' Up stamp sets have coordinating punches.
Here's a quick card I made to go with the present using the same elements as the box. Sponging the edges of the designer paper with Pacific Point ink helps to give it a bit of depth, as does sponging the edges of the Crumb Cake card base with Whisper White craft ink.
Here's the card and box together making a lovely coordinated set. The Happy Birthday tag is so useful! It's great for cards but you could also use it as a tie-on gift tag - just punch a hole in one end, and tie it to your gift.
Supplies needed for this card:
Stamps: Perfect Punches
Ink: Pacific Point, Whisper White craft ink
Card stock: Crumb Cake
Other: Poppy Parade, Pacific Point markers, Blueberry Crisp designer paper, Large Oval punch, Fiskars trimmer with scoring blade.

Well what a hectic weekend we've had on the party front! I'm exhausted! Not that I have been attending any parties you understand - I've just been the chauffeur for the many social events my children have been invited to! I really must get myself a smart uniform and a peaked cap...
I hope you've had a good weekend and are ready for the week ahead. There'll be lots to see here again this week, so I do hope you can join me again soon.
