The theme this week at Stamp, Ink Paper Challenge is floral and that was a perfect match to honor my mother's birthday. I stamped the flower image from Stampin' Up's Butterfly Basics set 3 times on Very Vanilla card stock and water colored the images. For the card I also stamped the birthday sentiment from the same set in Early Espresso. Everything was layered on Early Espresso card stock and a bit of lace tucked under the sentiment. The box is a recycled candy box. I love to reuse these little boxes for gifts. They are a lovely dark brown linen finish and perfect for a gift card or other small gift. I bit of wide lace is secured around the lid and topped with another flower image. Finally, a little card with the same image to hold the gift card. I like to do something to dress up gift cards to personalize them a bit.
Here is a photo of just the card. I lightly stamped the flourish from Stampin' Up's Everything Eleanor on the Pool Party panel, though it is hard to see in the pictures. It was the perfect light touch to add a little interest.
