Big Present

I made this card for one of my great nephews for his forthcoming birthday.

I attached a snippet of wood grain paper to a piece of white paper (this made it the same thickness as the topper) before trimming it so it was slightly smaller than the card blank.  I die cut a stitched square from the centre and attached the frame to the card.  I then die cut the precoloured topper and inlaid it into the frame.  To finish I used a fine pen to write 'Jamie' on the label.

To make this card I used:
     5" x 5" white matt card blank
     Lili of the Valley 'Big Present' Mini Masterpiece image
     Lawn Fawn 'Outside In Stitched Square Stacklables' die
     Docrafts Papermania 'Wood' paper
     Sakura Pigma Micron Pen

I am entering the following challenges:
     AAA Birthday Challenge - Patterned Paper
     Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge - March Challenge
     Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes

This is a brilliant card for your great nephew Kath and love the woodgrain background and the LOTV topper die cut and inset into the square aperture, and what a wonderful idea to write his name on the parcel tag. x
