I had been busy all last week creating a wedding photo book for my son’s math & social studies teacher who is getting married this week. I took photos of all the children and included in the books well-wishes, drawings and sound marriage advice from. We presented it to her and I created a gift card for the present.
Using white CS, I die cut the larger die from the Avery Elle die set Pinked Die. On the bottome of this card panel, I stamped the tulip image from the clear set Blooming Garden (30-155).
I was inspired by this card from Julie Ebersole and decided to do something similar. I die cut the worths “With Love” from the Mama Elephant alpha die set In Line Letter. I stamped a little dragonfly, from the clear set Salutations (30-014), matching the colors of the tulips on every other letter to have the letters stand out more. Once I did that, I carefully (and I had to do this a few times to get it right) adhered it to the top portion of the card panel. I then cut another card panel which I trimmed with pinking sheers. The panels were attached and then I added ribbon. I also added a sentiment to the back of the panel from the ME clear set So Breezy.
Since I wanted to attach it to the wrapped present, I thought I’d make a matching envelope using the Envelope Punch Board. I bought it several months ago and this was the first time using it. And I LOVE it! It took me 2 tries but I was so happy after the second try! I added the tulips. I used Kate’s Alphabet (30-168) to address the envelope.
By the way, she ABSOLUTELY loved the book. The students surprised her with it during recess. It was a joy to see them screaming “surprise” to her.
