Birthday Presents

Hello, crafty friends! Today I'm playing along with two challenges:

I love polka dots and stripes, and Donna's sketch is super fun, so I had a great time combining these two challenges :)

Here's my card:

These delightful little presents are from a Uniko Studio set called A Gift For You. I used sponge daubers to add a little bit of an ombre effect to the polka dotty parts of the packages :)

My grandma, who is about to turn 89 in June, isn't allowed to leave her apartment because of the pandemic. She loves to send cards, but can't go out to buy any, so I'm working on building up a little collection of handmade cards (for various occasions) to mail to her. I'm making sure they're all nice and flat, so they won't require any extra postage :) I'm also including a bunch of postage stamps, so she'll be all set to send out her happy mail :) I think she's going to be so excited when she receives this package!!!

Stamps: A Gift For You (Uniko Studio)
Ink: Fiesta Blue, Aquatini, Tiara, Tiki Torch, Lime Rickey, Grass Skirt (Catherine Pooler); Onyx Black Versafine (Tsukineko)
Cardstock: Solar White (Neenah), Hawaiian Shores (Ink To Paper)
Patterned Paper: Black and White Stripes 6x6 Paper Pack (MFT)
Dies: A2 Layers (Waffle Flower)
Other: Stamping Mask Paper (Inkadinkado), Sponge Daubers
Adhesive: Double-Sided Tape (Lawn Fawn)

Beautiful ombre look and great bright colors. What a thoughtful thing to do for your grandma. Now she is able to spread love and cheer too.

A great take on the challenges, I love it when you can spark an idea like that. Love the bright cheery parcels too.
