Birthday Gifts

I made the following for a girlfriend's birthday.  I gave her some crafting supplies which wouldn't all fit in the bag, so I just "wrapped" some of the items in the same paper and tied the package at the end with ribbon.
Here's a closeup of the card.

And of the bag
And here are the specifics:
A2 card from a pack of metallic orange cards that were on clearance at Joann's!! (love the metallic look and the cardstock is very thick).
The background mat is from DCWV Citrus matstack (as well as inside mat).
Solid colors from my cardstock stash; green patterned paper inside the glass and for label is Heidi Grace.
The martini glass is cut from Nifty Fifties (modified a bit); I call it an Appletini!  Label cut from Lacy Labels.
The ribbon came from a pack of self-adhesive birthday ribbons I've had for a while.
Stamps:  Cheers to You from the $1.00 bin at Michaels; Let's Party was given to me: Happy Birthday from Humorous Birthday set from Inkadinkadoo.
Added some bling!

The bag is cut from Making Memories pack of designer papers called Chloe's Closet (on clearance at Michael's!).  This cardstock is really thick and has a nice smooth finish on it, making the bag very sturdy. Cut the bag from Wrap It Up at "fit to page" which made it about 7-1/4" tall.  Cut the Happy Birthday label from Hello Kitty Greetings.

So what do you think?  I love all the colors together.  TFL!!  Appreciate all your comments.


  1. What a fabulous gift, and so well coordinated. Your friend is sure to love it. :-)

  2. This is a really cute "set". The paper is so eye catching, and cheerful- love it.

  3. Great gift set, love the fun colors! And I love how you do the inside of the card too.....I never seem to get that far!
