I made this Chinese 80th Birthday card using a Woodware stamp set, image coloured with Promarkers, and die cut with Spellbinders. The papers are by Papermania, and were perfect for the colours I used, I love red and gold together.
I cut out the Filligree Delight largest panel with the oval in the centre to create a frame which I mounted onto red card cut with the A2 card maker set B version, both by Spellbinders.
The numbers were cut with Sizzix Shadow Box die, the ribbon is by Chatterbox. The sentiment is heat embossed in gold and finally I added some red flat backed pearls.
Inside the card, I managed to cover the inside with the same sheet of paper, with a strip of gold card strategically placed over a necessary join! Happy Birthday Granny Tao!
I have entered the following challenges:

Also I finally made a box for the baby word card I made ages ago, and here it is:
The box base is plain and stapled at the corners for strength.
The lid is strengthened by ribbon (from Crafty Ribbons) threaded through punched holes to match the word book (The Cutting Cafe file), and the letters were cut with the same paper used on the word book using Sizzix Shadow Box dies, finally the notches were cut with Sizzix Lollipop die and hammer.
