Happy Birthday Jeremy!

Jeremy turns 12 today! He is a 4th of July baby and we attended a BBQ & Birthday Party for him this afternoon. This is the card and goodie box I made for him:

We decided to give him money this year. This "Skateboarder" stamp is now retired as of June 30th but I like it so much that I am not willing to part with it. The background images are from the "Extreme Elements" stamp set. What a cool way to create a background and give it some punch at the same time. Below is a close-up of the goodie box:

I included some Girardhelli Chocolates. The box is completed with the "Matchbox Die" and phew, I'm so glad that one didn't retire as I just purchased it a few months ago!

The card:

Supplies for both projects:
  • Cardstock: Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Old Olive

Happy Birthday Jeremy and enjoy your summer!
