Birthday Gift for Stamp With Us Challenge #2

It was my friend Chris' birthday last week (Happy Birthday Chris!!). I was a little stumped as to what to get her as she already has everything she wants (lucky girl!). Luckily for me she has a little interest in card making so I decided to make a little paper/cardstock set for her to use. I used the Filed With Flair Timeless Template from Papertrey Ink to make the file folder, then decorated it with the new Washington Apple Designer Papers from SU.

I then added some packages of different papers and cardstock. Each package had 4 pieces of different DP (I used Washington Apple, Tea Party and Rainbow Sherbet) with 4 card blanks in coordinating colours and 8 pieces of the same coloured cardstock for mounting images etc. Each package was then wrapped in coordinating grosgrain ribbon.

To go with the set I made a joy fold card using the same colours and DP as the file folder and Chris loved the fact that they matched!

I thought I would also enter this in the Stamp With Us challenge #2 seeing as the theme for this challenge was Birthday.

Papers: Riding Hood Red (US In Colors 09 not available over here unfortunately), Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Washington Apple Designer Papers
