Masculine Birthday with Sweets

Hi Everyone,

I’ve been having a fun time making this card with built in sweets box for a certain Father In Law whose birthday is coming up in a day or two. The paper is from the Stampin’ Up Well Worn pack and it’s been layered onto Crumb Cake cardstock to make the front panel of the card.


The “construction” part of the card is made with Soft Suede cardstock and a piece of acetate is used in the window. I really must get myself the modern label punch – it would have made the perfect window! Once again I’ve used a tutorial from Split Coast Stampers to create the base of this card - that has a box off to one side that is filled with sweets. (candy coated liquorice in this case Smile )

The sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up set called Punch Bunch and it is layered onto a plain tag which was cut using the Sizzlit called Lots of Tags that is available with Stampin’ Up. Here I have cut it from Crumb Cake cardstock, but because it didn’t stand out too well, I sponged over it with Cajun Craze ink. There’s a little bakers twine wrapped around it too.

This was styled using the Mojo Monday Sketch as I am want to do…


Yes, that is the Ribbon Border Punch again – this time in Not Quite Navy cardstock. Heck, who needs ribbon with a punch like that! A little scrap of cardstock was embossed with the Lattice embossing folder and put across the top of the box on top of some extra score lines. (oops)


Hope you like this very masculine card – I’m sure my Father in Law is going to love the fact that it has sweets in it – even if he is Seventy odd years of age!

On to some challenges I’d like to enter this in….

Papermates was a world of fun today – and I’ll be back with more goodies to show you. Perhaps a little twittery bird or two? You’ll have to pop back and see. Have fun yourself now, that is what it’s all about…
