Birthday gift and Matching card

Ok - so here is the card and the gift. The guy likes to cook and does the household accounts and its his birthday. The box is a covered kleenex box. If you are interested, go to Stamptv.com for the instructions. They are both on Youtube and written and much better than I could ever do! It is called Kitchen Organizer. I used Tim Holtz papers and inked edges with his distress inks. One of these days soon I will show you what I did to organize the sponges! Not my idea but fab just the same! Edwins's background is distress ink. I buy Magnolia stamps from either Magnoliaicious or Stampingscrapping.com. Inside, the stove is heat embossed with black. It is dimensional as is the greeting on the inside. Both greetings are from Gina K (StampTV). I used Spellbinder's dies with my Cuttlebug. Those are just two things that are new to me that I had to have! I think I have covered it all. Of course there are lots of stickles! Hope you enjoy it. Please leave me a comment so I know if you like it. Thanks, Hugs to you all, Barb F

What great work! I am sure he is going to love his gift. Beautiful colours - I am always challenged when I have to do something masculine....
