Moxie Fab World Birthday Tags & Wraps Challenge


How's it going, friends?  I'm still on vacation--just two more days visiting family, two days on the road, and I'll be home.  *sigh*  I think I'm looking forward to high-speed internet most of all.  The connection here is so dreadfully slow, I haven't been able to browse as much or leave many comments, but I hope to remedy that next week.

I do have one more project to share with you that I made before I left.  It's for one of the challenges in the Moxie Fab World celebrating the latest special issue, Birthday Creations.


Cath has challenged us to make a birthday tag or gift wrap, so I whipped up a simple tag and stamped it with banners from Mama Elephant's Soiree.  I used a craft knife around the sides of three of the flags to curl them up for dimension.

I was dying to use the metallic gold twine from The Twinery, so I heat embossed some tiny gold stars on the tag to coordinate with it.  I wrapped a book (my favorite gift to give) in turquoise tissue paper, wrapped it with twine, and attached the tag.

Cardstock:  WPlus9 Design Studio (White)
Stamps:  Mama Elephant (Soiree), Lawn Fawn (Critters Ever After)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Pool Party), Memento (Tuxedo Black), Versamark
Tools:  Spellbinders (circle die), hold punch, corner rounder, craft knife
Other:  Zing (gold embossing powder), The Twinery (gold metallic twine), tissue paper

There's still plenty of time to play along in the Birthday Creations challenges, so be sure to check all of them out!

Have a good one!

Oh Christina, this kit must have taken FOREVER to get make, but what fun they all have had with it. Honestly, such great ingredients, love the birthday theme. Your cards always inspire me, but the one with the balloons coming out of the fortune cookie box is my favorite. Just the most creative idea...ever! So excited that you all have a new blog dedicated to the 12 Kits...great idea and I know so many
people are going to love looking at it!
