Happy Birthday Top Tip Tuesday!!

Hello and welcome here!  Top Tip Tuesday is celebrating their 2nd Birthday, YAY!!! Can you guess what the next challenge is?  Birthday Gifts...you can decorate boxes/bags etc. or use an image of a gift.  I chose to use images of gifts.

Challenge - Birthday Gifts
Tutorial - Picnic Box by Bettina

Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"
The gifts are a great way to use up scraps!  I can't take credit for using Martha Stewarts Ribbon Loop corner punch for the bows, I saw the idea on someone else's blog and thought it was a super cute idea.  I embossed the background paper with Marianne Designs embossing folder, but left the little cut-out pieces in.

I added a strip of glitter paper behind the presents to give it sparkle...I think I'll add some Stickles to the bows too.

Recipe:  PP-My Mind's Eye Howdy Doody "Lovely" Wallpaper & Howdy Doody "Beautiful" White Wash, American Crafts Mulberry Glitter paper, I didn't have the info left on the bit of flower paper, CTMH CS-Juniper & Cotton Candy, CTMH Ink-Juniper, Cotton Candy & Black, SS-Flourish Tag Lines, CTMH SS-Tender Tags, Martha Stewart Punch-Pinking Scallop Border & Ribbon Loop Corner, Spellbinders-Lacey Ovals & Ovals Sm., Pearls, Foam Squares, Celebrate It 5/8" Cream Grosgrain Ribbon.

This is such a pretty card. The embossed background adds wonderful texture. Those gifts are adorable and show really well next to the sparkly strip. Thanks for joining us this week for our embossing challenge at Craft Your Passion. I hope we see you again soon.
