commissioned Happy Birthday card

Yup, my friend commissioned me to do a 3-d box card for her mother.  She told me all the things her mother loves...to the flowers, planting, and the Denver Broncos!

On the belly band, I used the beautiful Doodle Pantry set called Rubber Boots. For the inside I used a public domain Bronco and made into an svg.  The tools are from the Silhouette store and the images I bought many years ago from Trina Clark on-line.

  2. Duh -- I'm such a dunce! I never thought to make a belly band for the box cards!
    Yours is lovely. I like the yellow paper, and that stamp on the belly band is just gorgeous! I'm sure your friends' mother will be WOWed!


  3. So cute and so very clever too! It's sure to bring on the smiles!

  4. What a wonderful card!!!
    So colorful and cheery. Love it.

  5. OH MY WOWZA Cely...that card is AWESOME! I have not done one of these types of cards yet. I'm a little intimidated. But my goodness did you knock it out of the ballpark. She's going to LOVE it!

  6. Fabulously done, Cely! Love the boot. :-D
    I think I'm finally on the road to recovery but am still taking it slowly and trying not to overdo. :-D

  7. Adorable, Cely! I love the Denver Broncos touch. I haven't tried one of these. Something else to add to my list!

  8. Oh how fun...l love box cards...this looks like it has some special details just for the birthday person!!! Very cool!

  9. OK, other than this being completely impressive, does this fold flat to mail? Trying to figure out where the belly band goes. Do the flaps just go up (but the box doesn't close) and the belly band keeps the flaps up? And you colored the DP image? Wow. I thought it was precolored. Wonderful shadows and highlights. I bet she was way impressed as well.

  10. Oh my goodness Cely I love this! I've got to try one of these!
