Last week my boss's daughter had a birthday and of course I made her a card. She is a big reader, so I know that giving her a gift card to a book store is always a good bet. I wanted the card to be presented in a fun way, so I made her a card that opens by removing a belly band and then pops up the gift card. Here is a look at the closed card
The image is a new one at Squigglefly from artist Cheryl Alger. It's called Avery Celebrates With Cake. I colored the image with Copic markers and chalked some yellow around the background. I added some stickles to the candle flame and used liquid applique for the cupcake frosting. When you slide the belly band off it opens up to this
The sentiment is also from Squigglefly and is called Birthday Special. the little flap on the right side is what holds the gift card. She enjoyed her card and her gift. I followed directions from Gina K to make this holder, and if you want to make one you can see the video HERE.
Well, that's it from me! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
