Handmade gift and card

I'm still hooked on these little mini trays from Craft Individuals and I wanted to make a birthday present for a friend... so I made a decorated tray and matching birthday card using my yummy SU stash:

For the decorated tray I used Newsprint patterned paper, Greenhouse Garden stamps and Bashful Blue and Crumb Cake inks. I curled the flowers for a bit of dimension and added pearls to the centres. The sentiment stamp is from the Cute by the Inch stamp set and I cut it out and matted it onto Bashful Blue card.

For the card I again used Bashful Blue and Crumb Cake inks but I used the Vintage Vogue stamp set this time. I curled the flowers again and added pearls and I repeatedly stamped the little border stamp to give a nice long floral border across the bottom part of this easel card. The patterned paper toned really well with the Bashful Blue and Very Vanilla cardstock.

I also made a little gift box from matching cardstock and patterned paper. :)

Wonderful art work!
About your question on my blog: "I have the same embossing folder.. can I ask how you made the background? Did you colour then emboss and sand off the ink on the raised areas?" Yes, that's what I did!
