At long last I can reveal my latest project - it has been kept under wraps because the recipient looks on my blog on a daily basis! & I am now with Mum in Oz again for her 80th birthday yesterday.
We had a lovely celebration :-)
So this is the box I made which matches the card inside.
This is a close up of the corner of the box.
I used some of the blooms from my blog candy - aren't they gorgeous! & appropriate for the occasion :-)
I also used some pearl & crystal gems & my Martha Stewart doily edge punch & some co-ordinating ribbon.
The card was wrapped in gold tissue paper ..............
Which opened to reveal the card .......
I used my nestabilities to cut the mats for the important digits which were chipboard numbers which I covered with the co-ordinating paper.
I added pearls and the corner of the card is what I echo'd on the box.
I rounded the corners of the card & used co-ordinating ribbon for the bows.
Happy 80th Birthday Mum :-)
