Shoe Birthday Card and Gift Box

My Mother's Birthday falls 2 weeks after Mother's every year I try to distinguish the two apart and do something different for both occasions.  You can view the Mother's Day card in a previous post.

I bought my mother a pair of earrings but the box is pretty evident in distinguishing what it is and if you knew my mother....she loves surprises!!! So this year, I made a little “Lunch Box” Gift box and Card.

The Following Supplies were used for the Gift Box:

Cricut Cartridges- Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2
Cricut Projects- Flower Shoppe
“Mom”- All in the Family Large Sentiments from Just Rite
Versamark Ink
Eggplant Pearl Embossing Powder from Recollections
Heat Gun
Small Circle Punch from Marvy Uchida
Sookwang Tape
Craft Glue
Various cardstock shades from  from American Crafts Pastels Collection

She loved carrying the box and now has it proudly displayed on her mantle, so it was worth the paper cuts assembling it! :o)

Not only does my mother enjoy surprises, she also has a flair for SHOES!!! Like mother, like daughter. 

For this card, I used the following supplies:

Fashion Shoe Digital Stamp from Justinklined.
Border Bling from Gina K. Stamps
Dew Drop Purple Hydrangea Chalk Ink
Spectrum Noir Markers
Liquid Pearls in Lavender Lace
Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock from Crafter's Companion (For when using alcohol markers)
Different shades of Purple cardstock from American Crafts Pastels Collection
Purple Shimmer cardstock from DCWV Shimmer Stack Collection
Paper Piercer and template from Stampin' Up!
SpellBinders Nestabilities- Scalloped Ovals,  Labels Twenty-Five & Labels Fourteen Dies
Prima Heartshaped Pearl Flower
Feather and Pearls for embellishments.
Pop Dots

This too was a hit, but then again, what woman doesn't like a fabulous shoe???

Happy Craftin'!
