Happy Birthday!


I made this birthday card and gift holder for my cute niece in Taiwan who turned seven on the 5th. Sigh... Time flies!

The dimension of the card is 4"x 5 1/2" with a 1/2" depth. I included the depth in my design since I knew that the owl keychain that I was going to put in would be bulky. This was really easy to make once I figured out all the measurements!

The cute doll stamps are from the Hero Arts new 2010 release. They just remind me of my niece with their little chubby faces! =) Ahhhh.... I miss her so much...


Thanks for stopping by!


ingredients used:
cardstock: Papertrey Ink, Neenah Solar White
stamps: Hero Arts
ink: Memento
patterned paper: BasicGrey
ribbon: Taylored Expressions
decorative scissors, punch: Fiskars
others: sewing machine, thread
