Humpty Dumpty Gift Set






Can I just say that "wrap it up" might be my new favorite cartridge? Okay, for this week it is! Such fun boxes!!!

For the card: Got Mr. Dumpty from the Nursery Rhymes cartridge. Detested that horrible face they gave him. So I used my Gypsy to 'hide' his facial features and mixed and matched my Peachykeen face stamps for his new and I must say IMPROVED face! lol! They didn't really have the layer feature on him so I just cut him in different colors and then cut away the portion I wanted to use for his clothes, brick wall, etc. A little bit of piecing together and VIOLA! The ever endearing Mr. Dumpty sitting on his wall. I adhered some prima flowers to the bottom of the wall and added the must have bling with my irock. Stamped the Humpty Dumpty name from the Debbie Mumm stamp series. Finished the inside to coincide with the front.

For the box: As I was saying "Wrap it up" cartridge was my 'go to' baby for this one. Big Idea Studio paper for the box itself and again on the note card faces. Debbie Mumm Humpty (nursery set)stamp - poorly colored with Prima's. Add some ribbon and your done. Left the cards free of sentiments so they can be used however the recipient would like.

My dear friend is going into the hospital next week for heart surgery so I wanted to have this ready for her when I go visit. Her most favorite thing is Humpty Dumpty and he's very hard to find. So imagine my excitement on this. I really like how it all turned out. Can't wait to see what everyone thinks. Have an amazing Friday!
