I made this card/gift combo for one of my club ladies, Sharon. In my previous Virtual Hostess Clubs, I’ve sent a small gift to every member each month but this year I decided to shake things up a bit, ditch the monthly treats and give them a proper present in their birthday month.
Last month it was the turn of Sharon and Kelly but I’ve had to wait until now to show you as both had their birthdays right at the end of the month. I won’t tell you what’s in them, as I may end up repeating gifts later in the club year… and also, I confess I can’t remember what was in this one! I do remember it being cylindrical and having to turn it on its side to fit it in… ah yes, it’s come back to me now. Still not telling you though.
The box is made with the Gift Bag Punch Board and one of the speciality sheets of DSP from the Affectionately Yours pack. I continued the theme through to the card with this very simple design, prettied up with some tiny flowers from the Tree Builder Punch.
And yes, I finally invested in the Layering Circle Thinlits. These are great, so much more versatile than the old circle dies, as there are scalloped dies to match each circle… and they’re a much more suitable size for cardmaking, too.
