Birthday card and mini cupcake box for my SIL - Happy Birthday Zoe

Today's my sister-in-law's birthday and I made this little card and gift set for her. The card is CASEd from the lovely Monica. The box is from the Stamp With Us on-line class. Apologies - I forgot to photograph the card separately before sealing it in the envelope but I think you can still see it fairly clearly in the photo above.

Stamp set: Crazy for Cupcakes, Circle of Friendship, Sincere Salutations
Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip
DSP: Sweet Always
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Rose Red, Stampin' Write Markers
Ribbon: Rose Red double-stitched grosgrain
Punches: 1" circle, 1-1/4" circle, 1-3/8" circle

The top thread of the ribbon was pulled to create the canopy.

Here's the inside of the card:

The balloon was paper pieced.

And now the box:

Stamp set: Crazy for Cupcakes, Oval All
Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White
DSP: Sweet Always
Ink: Rose Red, Stampin' Write Markers
Ribbon: Regal Rose wide grosgrain
Punches: Scallop square, 1" circle, Scallop oval
Other: Waxed paper, label, mini muffins

The box was made following the Stamp With Us instructions and then decorated.

Here's what's inside:

Shop bought mini muffins/cupcakes I'm afraid. Bit too busy crafting to be baking as well. I lined the inside of the box using waxed paper and put my own hand-made seal over it. I stamped the sentiment from Oval All onto a printer label and punched it out. It's difficult to peel the label from the backing so I scored the backing lightly with a craft knife to get the backing off.


Have a great weekend.

Great set, and lovely gift.
The use of your own seal label is a good idea! xx
