Printers Tray/birthday card!

Hellooo, everyone seems to be loving these ~printers trays~ from TANDO CREATIVE which come in different shapes and sizes. I chose the little one (103x103cm) which has a lid, cover...whatever you like to call it haha! I decided to be a little different and make mine into a birthday card for my daughter, vintage style.  Though maybe I should have chosen a more modern theme as she says she feels old now....she is 26!!!  Oh, I wish I was 26 again...daft mare hahahahaha!!!

I glued all the levels together and sprayed them with Glimmer Mists. I also used one of Tando's ~plaques~, which come in a pack of 3, for the cover, also sprayed with Glimmer Mists. The papers are Basic Grey Bittersweet.

The little bits inside are from my stash...old lace and a bead, a stamped bustier with teensy buttons, an old stamp and a silver butterfly charm.

We are pretty busy over at Tando at the moment...there is the MONTHLY CHALLENGE with prizes that you can find ~HERE~ and then something very exciting...

...our lovely Carol is running a FREE online class ~HERE~.  Here is a sneaky peak of what you could be doing, please take a look!!!!

Thank you for coming to look, please leave a comment to say that you have been...I love those! Take care and keep warm & dry HUGS xxx

It's lovely, Karen and a beautiful idea for a special card/gift combo - you could even use one of the holes for a piece of jewellery or other small gift, couldn't you?
