My Sheri Crafts #142

Get ready to celebrate BIRTHDAYS at My Sheri CraftsIt was my turn to pick the theme this time and since the month of September holds so many birthdays among people in my life... I figured it was the right theme to pick

I designed this card to look like a birthday present since most of the time... the card IS THE PRESENT!  

I used double-sided paper so that the top part of the present (which represents the box cover) would match the bottom part.  The bottom part is basically a pocket where the personalized note can slip in.  The border punch trimming is a Martha Stewart punch and instead of a giant bow, $1 stamp inside which I colored with gel markers, and I used silk flowers to finish it up

Thanks for looking!

Now... it's your turn to create something spectacular and join us over at  My Sheri Crafts


  1. Great card Raquel, lovely bright colours. What a gift to get a card like this.

  2. Very creative Raquel! What a wonderful way to give a gift card, etc!

  3. Your card is sooo pretty with the blues/greens and that big flower, Raquel!!! I can see this same LO being used for a guy, substituting masculine colors, a round die cut for the flower and a different strip down the front -- a great base that can be used in many ways!!! TFS!!!

  4. Raq, your cards with the large daisies always make me smile, and this one managed to do that too! It is a happy card, and the pocket for the note makes it a lovely surprise.
