Can't believe it's my friend Debi's birthday again! Decided to actually make her something this time, so I spent some time deciding which project to make for her. First of all, decided to try out my new Tim Holtz clipboard die that just came out. I gotta admit, it's pretty cool! You can actually make the clipboard work and insert a tag or gift card under the flaps. I bought her a gift certificate online, so I hid it inside the pink card below.
Roses were from Wild Orchid Crafts and wish ticket is by Tim Holtz. Love those tickets!
Here's the card assembled.
And here's the inside of the card... Don't laugh but I realized after I gave it to her that I forgot to sign it!!
The other part of her present was a shabby chic stacked book drawer! Here's the front view. I decided to change it a bit and insert a tin box on the top book. The other two books are drawers.
Here's the view from the top. I used one of the Tim Holtz book plates and inserted the "dream" ticket. Added more pearl flourishes and roses and a little acrylic butterfly. Paper is by Pink Paislee (I think).
Here's a close up of the cover.
Here's the book spines.. Maybe I should've used something other than kraft cardstock.. kinda plain.
Here's the first book opened up. because I wanted the book to open up, I had to add some seam binding to the inside in order to keep the book cover closed.
Inside the tin I cut some leaves out of burlap and used my distress stains on them. Also included some Pebbles Inc. clothespins.
And finally- a look at the drawers. Here's one of them with the goodies I included. One package is pearly roses and the other is white acrylic flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
She seemed to really like it. So glad I made it for her. Happy Birthday Debi!
