Happy Birthday - Gift Wrapped Bundle

 Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a super simple little card using the Gift Wrapped Bundle from the August - December Mini Catalog.  This is typically a Christmas Stamp Set but you can stretch it by using a greeting stamp set for so many other occasions.  This was one of the items on my Top 10 List that I shared last week.  If you missed that post you can check it out here.  Here is a look at the birthday card I made using this set.  

Tips & Tricks: 

As I mentioned above the Gift Wrapped bundle is not necessarily just for Christmas!  You can change the colors of the bows and add an additional greeting set to it and make projects for any and all occasions which is why I think it's a must have in your crafting stash.  There are so many different uses for bows and not just for Christmas presents.  You need bows all year round.  So I took this bundle and made a birthday card with it.  To start off I picked some very untraditional colors that you wouldn't think of for a Christmas set.  I used Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, and Whisper White on my card today.  You could also use this same set and color combination to make a card for a baby shower for a little girl.  

After picking the color combination I started the building process.  I stamped one of the bow images from the stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  I used my Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blends to color it.  I then used the matching Gift Bow Builder Punch to punch it out.  

Next, I took a piece of Daffodil Delight Cardstock and cut it to 4 1/4 x 11" and folded it in half to make my card base.  To that I added a 1" x 5 1/2" strip of Flirty Flamingo Designer Series Paper from the Brights 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper and attached it to the card base.  I cut another piece of the same paper to 3" x 4" and layered that to a 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" piece of Whisper White which I popped up on the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I wanted this to be representative of a birthday present.  

After that was all in place on the card base I took a 1/2" strip of Whisper White cardstock and one of the sentiments from the Itty Bitty Birthday Stamp Set and stamped it in Daffodil Delight Ink.  I used both the Lovely Label Pick a Punch and the Banner Pick a Punch to add a little bit of interest to the both ends and to make it look like a tag hanging from the bow.  Before attaching the long skinny tag I placed the bow onto the card front with a Stampin' Dimensional.  Then I attached the little tag tucking one end under the bow with Mini Glue Dots to finish off my card.
