Sophie's Card - Take #2 Inspiration Emporium

This is the other card I made for Miss S.  I haven't heard [yet] if she has pulled anything off this one but at least there was nothing for her to harm herself with on this replacement card!

I am entering this card on the current monthly challenge on the Inspiration Emporium blog: Happy Birthday America or Other Birthday Celebrations.  Naturally, I didn't make a happy birthday America card but I am pretty sure a simple 1st birthday card is almost as important.  The details for the challenge are here .

Here's the replacement card I made as it was attached to the wrapped present. I am pretty chuffed with the wrapping as I don't normally spend that much of an effort on the gift wrap.

The embossing folder I used was one that came in a sale bundle ($3 for 5 -Bargain!). I instantly fell in love with this folder and can see myself making a whole lot of these in various colours.  I think you could give blank versions with different coloured centre squares with different sentiments stamped on them as gifts. The gift receiver could put a card together according to their colour preference and sentiment required.

Materials: Cardstock (Stampin' Up!), Embossing Folder (Craft Concepts), Glitter (Martha Stewart), #1 and 'S' (American Crafts), Tag (Making Memories), Paper (DCWV), Doily, Twine


  1. Lovely card, love the patterned paper and the little S

    1. Thanks Andrea. I know at one she isn't bothered by the hand made card and decoration but I enjoyed making it. It was the first time I personalised the packaging quite so much.
