Sonoma Birthday Card And A Great Clear Box To Put It In

I made this birthday card for a dear friend of mine using one of the new paper packs from Close To My Heart called Sonoma. I love this paper pack, it lends an elegant feel to projects made with it. I used a Viva La Verve sketch by Andrea Ewen at SCS.

I am so excited about some new product that I received yesterday from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. The wrinkled seam binding is only one of hundreds of ribbons that Sharon sells and the clear boxes are awesome. Now I can store my cards safely and easily until I am ready to use them and the presentation is incredible. See below for pics.

Here is the sketch that I used:

Supplies - All products are CTMH except where noted - card size is 6 1/2" x 4 3/4"

Paper - Sonoma Designer Paper, Olive & Colonial White cardstock
Stamps - Live Inspired (C1408), Gracious Greetings (D1265)
Ink - Smokey Plum, Bamboo
Accessories - Wrinkled Seam Binding (May Arts), Heirloom Assortment
Other - Border Punch (EK Success), Spellbinders Classic Oval Small & Large
3D foam

Here is a picture of the card in its clear case and also a picture of my Roxie birthday card in a clear case.
