A Classy-Dimensional THANK You

I spent Saturday, when you called Mom, working on a Thank You/Retirement gift for Chris. She's done a lot for our team and we wanted to say good-bye in style....the box, below, contains a beautiful ring and other items purchased for her. The "theme" of the gift is You Make Everything...BLOOM. She's a great boss.

The box is covered in SU Designer Paper and it's from Papertrey Ink. The little flower button is vintage, from Grandma's stash.
The top of the box is Rub-Ons from the same SU bundle.
A custom envelope with rub-ons and Old Olive textured cardstock for the card.

The front of the card....lots of little details here. All paper and ink is from SU. The ribbon is from Papertrey Ink. The little birdie is also from Papertrey Ink. Rhinestones are randomly chosen from my craft pile.

The card as you open it.....with cute Martha Stewart butterfly punches.

you make everything......BLOOM. A stamp from Papertrey Ink. This card has dimension! It's called a Tri-Shutter card. I found templates online and made them bigger. The card, when closed measures 4x10.5.

Lots of cute details...the flower stamp set is SU, it comes with this paper and the rub-ons.
The purple, yellow and pink flowers are cut out from the designer SU paper.
The card in all it's glory....I really love it. The "tan/kraft" pieces are meant for the 6 of us to write a short note to they will be filled with memories for her. Of course, I am bringing matching pen for all of us to use....It's gotta be matchy-matchy. I am pretty sure I got that from YOU. :)

Love the little birdie and the feather...
I also made her a box that matches.....
It holds some cards I made for her to use.....
There are 10 and the box could hold more. The box is "recycled" from Papertrey's what holds their stamps when you order them. Not an original idea, but a great idea.

Here is the front of the cards I made her.....same paper from SU ...Matchy-Matchy!
Love you Mum!
