Elegant Lines for an Elegant Birthday Gift


Yesterday we celebrated 2 birthdays. Rachel's and my mother-in-law's. I apologize for the poor lighting on these pictures. It doesn't show the projects very well.

The main focus of the birthday card and the card set is the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder and the Big Shot. All of these projects are very simple to recreate.


I created one card for each of the Subtles Collection colors. Each color was embossed with the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder and layered on a Very Vanilla card base. The monogram is from Stampin'Up!'s Monogram Sweet and was embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. Each "G" is punched out with the 1 1/4" punch and layered over a 1 3/8" circle of the same card color.

The card box was created from a piece of So Saffron Textured Card Stock. All 10 cards with envelopes fit neatly in the box; tied up in a bow of 5/8" Very Vanilla Grosgrain ribbon!



I hope you enjoyed today's projects. If you have any questions, please contact me. Tomorrow is the last day of the Clearance Rack Blitz! There are still some great deals to be had - check it out on my Stampin'Up! website, under "Shop Now"!

God Bless,
