Birthday Card For my Son's Classmate


I made this cute little Birthday Card earlier this month for my son's classmate.
I keep forgetting to send it with him to school mostly because he was sick so he did not actually go to school.
This little card is made with White card stock as the base.
The Patterned Paper is Penguin Paradise A Shore Thing Glitter Paper from Imaginisce.
It's what I guess is the backside. No glitter side. But I love it. I punched the side with The American Girls Boarder Punch Butterfly. I put on a strip of Striped Paper tape (unknown source) and a pretty piece of ribbon. The Picture is a Digi Stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil.
I cut it out and assembled the dress on top and popped her up with foam squares. And used the punched out butterfly on the upper left corner of the card.

The little bag she is holding has a tag that says Happy Birthday.

My Halloween Treat Bags for my son's Class

I so forgot to post these I can't believe it.
These are made with some wonderful Twine.
$1 bin stamps from Michael's
Scallop and Circle punches from Fiskars.
Black Cardstock embossed with Cricut Embossing Folder- Skeleton Scroll.
Some left over cello bags from last year.
And a silver ink pad from Fiskars.
Pop Dots.
Green, Purple, White and Black embossing powders.
Ok so here is how I did it.
I embossed a sheet of black Card Stock the size of the Embossing folder.
Folded it in half and inked it with the silver ink pad but using the Ranger Blending tool.
wrapped with twine and punched out a circle scallop and a round punch.
I stamped the scallop circle with the different stamp images and heat embossed with various colors.
Glued the circles together and attached to the card with pop dots.
Then filled the bag with treats and stapled the cards on the bags using Tiny Attacher from Tim Holtz.
