PTI August Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the blog hop for Papertrey Ink!

The challenge this month was to create a card based off a color/sketch combo. This is the one I chose. Doesn't that cake look delicious?

And here's my card.

I made this card for our summer nanny to thank her for watching the kids this summer. I know she's a book reader so when I saw this patterned paper in my MME stack I thought it would be perfect, especially with a gift certificate to Barnes & Noble enclosed!

A close up of the "ruffles". I embossed them with Background Basics: Text Style.

And here is the packaging I made to go with it.

The card (and gift card) are enclosed in a glassine bag. Then I cut two of the "handles" using the Front & Center #1 die. One on the front and one on the back adhered with Scor-Tape. I embossed her name on the front using Headline Alphabet and then a flower using Bloom Builders #3 die. Felt was cut with a button die and then topped with a button and twine.
