I was inspired by two challenges:

CAS(E) this sketch.

And, Seize the Birthday, with “presents” as the topping.


The first thing I thought of when seeing the sketch was the Stitched Rectangle Die Set. After cutting the five rectangles from Thick Whisper White Cardstock, I decided they would be really cute birthday presents, if I wrapped them in Designer Series Paper. 

The Bird Ballad DSP has a striped pattern that gave me the colors for the packages and bows: Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, and Pool Party. The Daffodil Delight package is from Bird Ballad DSP, and the Pool Party and Calypso Coral packages are from Subtles 6X6 DSP. I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut the DSP, and glued the “wrappings” on top of the Thick Whisper White Cardstock.


The bow is from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set, and cut with its die from the Bouquet Bunch Die Set. I used the same coordinating ink colors for stamping the bows.

“Happy Birthday” is from the Piece of Cake Stamp Set, which I stamped in Memento Black Ink.


The background is Whisper White, because I wanted the presents to stand out, but I embossed it with the Subtle Texture Embossing Folder for a little interest.

The presents and sentiment were popped up on Dimensionals, and my birthday card was complete!
