This is a pic of the present with the card inside ....


The flowers and clay heart are from Live and Love Crafts,
and the ribbon and lace are from my stash ...
The thing that you have to remember for this style of card is to
decorate the present outside and keep the card flat or it wont fit inside ...

Saturated Canary ballerina with tag ....

Hi everyone, i'm back with a quick post as i'm just on my way out, hopefully to order a new sofa as busy decorating yet again, lol ... my downstairs looks like a demolition site as putting in a new kitchen and totally making over the room, new sofa, fire, carpet etc ....
                                    Here is my card, i have no idea what this style of card is called
                                         as i found a tutorial to it on another blog, which i will pop
                                                               back later with a link to it .....

                              I used a fab cute image from Saturated Canary, isn't she adorable ....
                                                            I coloured her up with copics.


  And as usual, can you guess which papers i used ....
   yes Maja Design, these are The coffee in the Arbour collection
  

The tag is removable and is used to keep the card closed or you can
add it to present and leave the card how it is ...


                                            I used a Martha Stewart punch around the page,
                                        the little bow on the top of the tag is a Sue Wilson Die,
                                          and all my flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and 
                                                            Live and Love Crafts....

                          Well that's all from me today, be back real soon with more cards to share...
