Sassy Cheryl's Challenge 66 Create A Gift Card, Tag or Box

 This week Sassy Jeni challenged us to step outside our "card" box and make something a little different.  Little did she know I would be making it for her own daughter Savannah who graduated from High School.  Savannah just happens to be the President of our Stamp Club, The Inky Digits.  We have a little surprise  planned for her Tuesday night too.

I made a package of Thank You Cards,  packaged them in cellophane envelopes and tied them together with a yellow gingham checked ribbon.

 I made a gift tag using Sassy Cheryls Frantic Graduate stamp.  I colored it with my Copics in Green and Gold (yellow) which are Savannah's school colors.  Sparkled the sash with a little yellow Stickles and used a Clear Stamp class of 2011 at the bottom.  A little yellow tulle to attach and I was done.  Fast and simple.  Used the black cardstock to match Savannah's Graduation Invitations. I had some scalloped cards with an end flap so I began with those I used a strip of DP that I believe is My Minds Eye from Hobby Lobby.  The flower and stem are SU Embosslits called Simple Flower and Sweetest Stem.  The Little Grad Chicken is from Dynami Designs, colored with Copics punched out with my CM circle punch.  The Thank You is a SU stamp.
 I did not have enough Scalloped Flap Cards and when I went to the store to buy more, they were out.  I did find these Rickrack Cards from DCWV in White and Black.  so I used the same embellishments, just a little different placement.
I stamped the chicken on the corner of the envelopes and colored it too.  This was a fun project and I was surprised how fast it came together.  Once you have the basic design in place it all goes 1, 2, 3.  Good thing too because after all the gifts Savannah received yesterday, looks like I will be making more!!!!
