Our youngest son turns 20 years old on Thursday. He is in Chicago and we are in Southwest Florida; so all his gifts needed to get wrapped, boxed up and sent over a week ago. I had purchased beautiful handmade wrapping paper at Paper Source weeks ago. I made everything to coordinate with this beautiful paper.
For each package I made a coordinating gift tag. The first present uses the Retiring Big News sentiment. Grab this set before it is too late. It will retire on June 1st.
The wrapping paper was natural with Navy Blue. I used Night of Navy, Crumb Cake and Whisper White card stock to make the tag pop. The ribbon is also from Paper Source and is crumb cake and white. I adhered the tag with SU Linen Thread. Perfect!
This present has a tag using the Large Number Framelits. How can he be 20 already?
One of Pierce’s gifts is a gift card. I handled this over the phone so I had to create my own gift certificate. I CASE’d (Copy And Selected Edit) this from a sample Shelli Gardner did at the OnStage presentation in April. It is a Tag a Bag Gift Bag that is folded up and then closed with Washi Tape. I created a belly band with retired Regals DSP. The Lots of Framelits Collection is the perfect backdrop for my sentiment that was cropped with the Lots of Labels Collection. The banner is from the Mini Treat Bag framelits collection.
This is what the gift certificate looks like out of the bag. I love it. We are building up to the card.
I used retired DSP this is emboss resist card stock. Using my brayer I colored the card stock in Night of Navy ink and then wiped off the card stock with tissue to reveal the white stars. There is more emboss resist card stock coming in the new catalog. It looks beautiful. It is on my wish list. The sentiment from Big News takes center stage. My Crumb Cake envelope was decorated with balloons from Balloon Celebration. I used White embossing powder with Dazzling Diamonds mixed in so the balloons sparkle.
It is difficult to be apart for birthday’s. However I know Pierce will feel the love when he opens the box we sent.
I hope you have an amazing day. Thanks for stopping by!
