Gift Card Cake

Happy New Year!

I was inspired to make this project by one that I saw on Tracey Mason's site. Hers was larger and more ornate (it was for a wedding gift). I wanted to make one for a teenager's birthday gift.

There is a slit cut into the top two layers that holds a gift card. You can see a better picture of this below. The bottom comes off to hold a small gift item.

I love how it turned out! Hope you enjoy it!

Baby Girl Album Gift

I created this baby album for a friend of mine recently. I used layouts from the new how-to book, Magic. This book teaches you how to make the basic layouts, as I've done here. But it also teaches you how to turn these layouts into "Magic" with hidden slides, journaling, pictures, etc. It's really a great book!

I used the Cherry-O paper pack for the entire album.

The first and last layout in the album are the Charmed layout.
This next layout is called Backstage. I used Blooming Flourishes (CTMH) and Scribbles Alpha (Autumn Leaves) stamps sets on this spread.

The third spread is called Hat Trick. There is a hidden journaling piece behind the brown rectangle. I used Ritzy Ribbon (retired), Spot On Backgrounds, and Just For Girls stamp sets.

Baby Girl Album Gift

The fourth layout is called On With The Show. I used Large Chocolate Alpha, Boutique Borders and Love Is stamp sets.

Next up is Trap Door. Circle of Love and Blooming Flourishes stamp sets.

Then we have Raise the Curtain. Bowl of Cherries and Ritzy Ribbon stamps sets were used on this layout.

The next layout is called One Way Mirror. The only stamp set used on this layout is Precious Alpha.

Baby Girl Album Gift

This layout is called Juggling Act. No stamps used on this layout, but a lot of Tulip and Colonial White buttons!

And finally, the last spread is called Secret. I used the Large Chocolate Alpha on this layout.

For You...

I made this card a long time ago, but keep forgetting to post it.

I stamped the flowers and then cut them out and cut the petals toward the center to create separate petals. Then I curled them around a pencil to add dimension.

Colors: Sorbet, Chocolate
Papers: Twitterpated paper pack
Stamps: Floral Delights
