More Birthday gifts



I had so much fun making this little birthday set for a dear friend. I used the adorable image, Charlie Daisy because my friend loves horses, so this image was perfect! The little bag was made using my Expression and the Bags, Tags and Boxes cartridge. The paper base is PTI's Hibiscus Burst and I stamped the pattern on it with white CTMH ink using 4 little individual stamps from the Charlie Daisy set.

*Tip: when wanting to get a background pattern with small, individual stamps, arrange them all on your block and stamp them together, like they are one stamp. Makes a cohesive background and saves time!*

My friend really loved it, I hope you do to! Have a wonderful Monday:)

Supplies:
Stamps: Charlie Daisy, Clear Dollar stamps
Paper: PTI Hibiscus Burst, Gina K pure luxurey 120#
Tools: Cricut Expression, Tags, Bags, Boxes cart, MS punch, Cuttlebug, Swiss dot embossing folder
Other: Copic markers, Ribbon, PTI, Sweet Blush, buttons, silk flowers

That is really sweet! What a GREAT job you did coloring, I think putting in the sky just adds so much to the central image. I like the colors, the flowers, just everything about your design.
