MTME Birthday Gift Ideas!!!

Aloha and happy TGIF!!!

As promised I have another MTME project!!! Katie and Lauren are showing off some projects as well...please make sure to stop to check them out!!!

I always need some fun birthday ideas and with this new Simple Seedling © Cut File I have another winner!!!


I used some Kraft CS as my base and added the fun new Gardening Greats Candied Apple Jack Digi Paper - which was created by the super talented Sara Williams - to my envelope. I added some piercing around the edges and topped it off with some Red/White Checker Ribbon with a matching.

With the matching notecard file I created a *Gift Card Pocket*. I adhered some White CS and stamped the cute images from the Tending The Garden © Set to the front. I finished the pocket card off with a Large Silver Eyelet, some Red/White Checker Ribbon and of course my fabbo Silver Pearls :) !!!

********************************************

Since I had so much fun I created another fun and quick gift idea.....!!!



I bought this fun Burlap Flower Seed Package at the $-section at Target awhile back and figured it would look really pretty with the notecard from Simple Seedling © Cut File.

My card base is once again Kraft. I used two different Stamp Sets...first are the flowers from the brand spankin' new Tending The Garden © Set. They were inked in Memento Black and colored with these Copic Markers ~ R17, R22, R27 and G07. The beautiful frame and the birthday sentiment are from the So Sentimental © Set. I added some more Checker Ribbon, a matching Button, some Brown Scrapper's Floss and the small Silver Pearls.....voila!!!

Hope you like all my gift ideas???  Have a fabulous weekend!!!  I'll be back on Sunday with another post!!!

Hugs ~S~
