Pretty packages

Finally got my Mom's present wrapped. Found a box big enough to ship the huge comforter/bed in a bag set and will just tuck the prezzie and card in that big box. She gets the 2 presents this year as I didn't see how I could ever find a way to wrap up the comforter and everyone has to have something to open!

I did the little gift up to match her card...just happened to find a box the right colour and made up the tag to look similar to the card.
 Had to ask my sister not to let my Mum see the blog for the next couple of days. Can't have her seeing any sneak peeks before it gets there!

Hi ya, love all the details on your card and the colours are wonderful - so natural.

Thanks for your comments on my blog, they are appreciated. You asked about the way my card was made. It's really a square card (6x6 I think I'd have to check) the middle of the card is cut to give the standing panel and the sides scored to give the little ups / downs that the flourishes are attached to.

The template I used was very kindly sent to me by a blogging friend and I mangled the measurements to try and copy it!

I will go see if I can find a tutorial to make a similar card.

Hi - found something similar, in that this has the standing panel to one side, rather than in the middle.

The principal is the same though, just make the middle panel and then score the sides.

Hope it helps.

Your card and tag are so so pretty.
If your sister told her not to check out your blog, I bet she snuck on here to see it, lol.
I just posted my oldest daughters BDay card on my blog tonight. Her birthday is in July, lol. And she does check out my blog :-O

Hi Mo:

Your card arrived! It is so beautiful....I think it is the best one yet! That is saying a lot as there have been many beautiful cards received from you around here.

I think my favorite decorations on it were the eggs in the nest.

Thank you for making my day special! I feel lucky to have such great girls.

Love mom
