Lip Balm Gift on a Card

Hello! Are you also so glad it’s finally spring? I hate the winter! Today I have a card that is also a small gift! My 7 yo son loves his kindergarten teacher and talks about her a lot even though he’s in grade one. So we decided to send her a fun card so she will know he still really cares about her. (She’s very fond of him too.) AND, it’s my month to be hostess at Crazy 4 Challenges! This week I’ve asked the team and players to use at least 3 metallic or metallic coloured embellishments. Oh, and I have an awesome guest designer this month, Cindy Lawrence!

The cool plastic bubble is by MFT as are the dies needed to cut the the frame and the window in your card so the recipient can pull out the lip balm. I cut the window only partially so it left a flap. I didn’t score it so it stays closed quite well. In addition, the plastic bubble has small divots that hold the lip balm in. The hugs die is from Heffy Doodle and all the papers are by Kaisercraft. It’s hard to see but there is a tiny I MISS YOU on the top of the card. It’s from Painted Butterflies by Altenew.

For the challenge, I added a ton of tiny gold stars all over the white space on the card. I love that they are the perfect colour of gold (IMHO) and not too shiny. You can get these matte stars at Lucy’s Cards. I hope you can pop on over to see the team’s designs and especially the awesome card made by my guest designer, Cindy Lawrence! Her Copic colouring is super amazing! She’s so inspiring! I can’t wait to see the designs made by everyone who can play along with my challenge this week!

Enjoy, Rebecca
