Birthday Love card & gift bag

Here's a card I made for my Sister in Law. The card is made with Bazzill Bling cardstock in lilac. I stamped the hearts in pink on shimmery white cardstock, sprinkled the stamped image with pink embossing powder & heat set it. I spelled out Birthday Love with rhinestone letters. The heart border is from the Ka-Zoo collection. I made an envelope with matching patterned paper. I had to make a gift bag to go with it!

Purple Heart Box

My son & I were in the A.C. Moore a few weeks ago & he saw this box & wanted to get it. His Aunt Deanna's Birthday was coming up & she loves hearts so I said we could make it for her. I also picked up some metallic purple & silver paint, a clear glaze, some foam brushes, a smaller wooden heart for the top, chipboard letters & a sheet of glittered black felt. 

I painted three coats of purple on the inside & out & then three coats of glaze. The heart cutout got three coats of silver, a sprinkling of fine iridescent glitter & then three coats of glaze. It was then glued to the top. I flocked the chipboard "NANA" with purple flock, glued them on the silver heart & added the acrylic flower & a purple rhinestone. I cut a heart to fit the inside bottom out of the felt & glued it down. We gave it to her on Sunday & she really liked it.
