Happy Birthday Hubby

Well it's been almost 2 months since my last post. Lots of life happening but I hope that things might settle down now.  It felt really good to be back in my stamping room!  So here's the card that I made for my husband's birthday. I really need to focus on photography and learn how to use the manual settings on my camera.

I knew that I wanted to use my new set by WPlus9 "A Pocketful" so I started with that stamped in Midnight Muse on Very Vanilla card stock.  I wanted some presents peaking out of the pocket and didn't think that any of my stamp sets worked so I used my SU large tag punch to punch them out. You can't see the tag part as that is tucked below in the pocket. The front 2 presents were embossed with a dots folder and the back present was embossed with my SU Stripes embossing folder.  For the bows I used my SU Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer punch and cut them in half.  The pocket/presents are layered with dimensionals on Pool Party DSP which is backed with Gumball Green and a bit of Baker's Twine is also tied on. The sentiment is from "A Pocketful".  The card is backed on Midnight Muse.  I have a bunch of other new stamping stuff and can't wait to play some more :-)
