Birthday Card Set - a funky monkey on bright striped paper

A kids birthday card for the birthday card set I am making!!  Check here to get all the details on why and what I am destashing to do it!!
I started with a blue green card front and added this wonderful striped paper which reminded me of a party!!!  I watercoloured this cute monkey image (Melonheadz) and adhered it to the lower portion of my card.  I added a strip of rust cardstock over the top edge of the decorative paper and added my layered punchie greeting (SU).  The greeting is laser printed, sponged on the edges and then layered onto a decorative label punchie which I adhered over the strip using double sided tape.  A really fun card!!


Card sets packaged in clear Ferraro Rocher boxes!!

My card sets packaged and ready to go!!!  I have used clear Ferraro Rocher chocolate boxes (30) which accommodate the cards and envelopes perfectly!!  I have printed a sheet with info that also includes an image of all the cards for the birthday ones and also includes the inside verse for the Christmas ones!! I put the sheet on the bottom of the box with the images and text visible from the bottom and sides and placed the cards inside of the paper. Works really well!!   I taped the sides closed to resist the boxes being opened.  
So when you have a hankering for a sweet treat consider choosing the 30 pack of Ferraro Rocher chocolates!!  You can enjoy the yummy insides, save the gold foil and the medallions for your cardmaking and reuse the box to make a card gift for the holidays!!  Practically no waste!!!
