Birthday Card for my Boss

Here is a card I made for my Boss who's birthday it is tomorrow. This will be the first time she will have seen my handmade cards as I work at a marketing company and she is so good I have always been a bit shy to show her. Silly I know but I have only been there a year and felt a bit embarrassed about showing her as she is so good at what she does and I have never felt that my cards were good enough. I have decided to bite the bullet though and make her one and hope that she likes it as much as I have enjoyed making it. I used the Wedding solutions cartridge to cut the shoe out by welding the shapes together in design studio. I then mounted the shoe onto the front of the card so that the shoe opens to show her name. I then cut out a couple of flourishes, added some bling and a sentiment to the inside and voila.

I thought you may also like to see the scrapbook page I made at my crop today. I know it is using lilac again (can you tell I like Lilac) but I thought they went so well with the colour of Benn's bruise.

Thanks for looking.


  1. Well Max she will be stunned! This card is so stunning love the idea of the shoe opening with her name underneath, I might have to use this fab idea if thats ok!
    and gorgeous layout og Benn I know he had a black eye bless him but look at those eyes! He's gonna be a heartbreaker!

  2. Why wouldnt she love it,its perfect and handmade is always so much nicer than shop bought,it shows you thought about what she would like and then made it.Poor ben with his black eye,what are boys like. lol hugs sam xx

  3. good card but your scrapbook page is wonderful and inspired, they say you should scrapbook good and bad they are all memories, I did one of sam falling off his bike. lol. janex
