It's a Birthday Bash with Stampin Friends!

Hello and welcome to this month's Stampin Friends Birthday Bash Blog Hop. We have lots of ideas for you for cards and gift packaging, sit back, grab a cuppa and enjoy!

I've combined elements from the Annual Catalogue with touch of the Occasions catalogue for my projects today:

I love the die cuts in the Window Box Framelits set, the decorative candle thinlet is so cute, and not only that, when cut with Stitched Shapes Framelits they fit perfectly around the sides of the hexagonal box. And for something a bit different for the box, changed it up so it opens on the side instead of the top.

I decided to use a white background and use bright and happy colours, the Narrow Note Cards from the Occasions catalogue were the perfect size for the candles as well as the sentiment from Picnic with You. After layering strips of coloured card stock behind the die cut I popped the "candle element" on the card using dimensionals - simple but effective!

The gift box has 5 of the "candle elements", and the groovy raised banner is so easy to create with the special thinlet in the window box set - it cuts and pre-scores edge of the banner, so you can make it what ever size you need, so versatile!
