Birthday Card in a Box

Magical Birthday wm

My mother, who turned 75 earlier this month, requested a card in a box for her birthday. This was something I had seen before and thought was really cool. I hadn’t yet created one, so this was a fun challenge for me. Of course when my daughter saw what my mother had asked for she wanted one too! This is the card in a box that I created for my daughter’s birthday this past weekend. It uses a combination of current and retired products; Myths & Magic bundle (retired), the the Broadway Birthday Bundle, some retired Designer Series Paper and Bermuda Bay cardstock.

Unicorn & Mermaid Birthday

myths & magic group wm

This weekend marked my daughter’s 9th birthday and this year she wanted a mythical creature themed party. So I went back in time to use the Myths & Magic stamp set. With this retired stamp set and some of the current products and tools everything turned out magical!

The first picture has the invitations that were sent out (the one on the left my daughter created special for her little brother) and in front is the birthday card I created for her. The other two pictures are of the cupcake toppers and the loot bags. For the cupcake toppers I used the Stitched Shapes Framelit DiesStampin’ Blends and Gold Sequin Mini Trim. With the loot bags I used the Gift Bag Punch Board, Stitched Shape Framelit Dies, Stampin’ Blends and Gold Metallic Thread.

I love this simple card from the Holiday Card Swap I participated in! It’s from Laura Seki and features the Poinsettia & Alpine Sports thinlit die sets and the Buffalo Check stamp. It just makes me feel like bundling up after some good tobogganing!
