Weekend crafts…..

My DD Aditi’s wanted to make a birthday card to her class teacher. Although her teacher’s birthday was yesterday (Sunday!) She only knew about it on Friday. So we had lovely mother-daughter time together and made a card. Aditi choose the colors and the stamp sets. She wanted sparkles on the card and a gift too. Here is the card we made together.
There is the metal PTI bookmark with the felt flowers that comes out from the pouch for the teacher. I forgot to take a photo of it separately.She is all proud today taking the card to the teacher. Will wait this evening for her to tell me all about it lol!
Cardstock: PTI’s Cream, SU’s Taken with Teal, Basic Gray, Kiwi Kiss
Stamp sets: Its Official and Just the Ticket from PTI
Inkpads: Stazon Black Ink and Kiwi Kiss!
Accessories: SU’s scallot envelope dies, PTI’s Beautiful Bloom, Bookmark Topper and Just the Ticket Border dies II, PTI’s Hawaiian Shores and Simply Charteuse, SU’s brads, Dazzling diamonds, PTI’s Bookprint Impression plate, sponge and gel pen.
I also have made some changes to the invitations from the previous post after receiving feedback from many of you here, emails and in the forum. Thanks you so much. I have not modified too much but a little. It did make a whole lot difference. Here are the modified versions.
Hope my client likes one of the two. Fingers crossed! 
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!


  1. Little girls always like sparkles and glitter, don't they? lol The card turned out wonderfully and I just know the teacher will be touched by your and your DD's thoughtfulness.

  2. The card for your daughter's teacher is lovely. And how appropriate to give a teacher a book mark! Your invitations are also beautiful. I like the simplicity of the original purple one. You could drive yourself crazy with all those dots on a hundred cards. Keep working on those hearts. Got Heart Prints or something similar? They just need to pop a little! Wonderful work!!

  3. beautiful, love the changes you made…..the bookmark card is aweosme too!

  4. Love the changes you made to your invites!!

  5. What a lovely mother/daughter project, Gayatri! Your DD's teacher is going to be so touched. I still love the invites–and the purple one is still my favorite! 🙂
