Happy Birthday Gail

I made this birthday present for my friend Gail. It was made from SVGcuts.com's 3D Letters which can be found here. You will need SCAL3 and the Silhouette to cut the SVG file. Chocolate Brown card stock was used for the sides and back. The letters are backed with a Pink Card Stock and the decorative paper is from Crate Paper/Pink Plum Collection. I love this paper (have been hoarding it) and I know Gail does, too so it was perfect to use for her gift. The 3D embellishments used are dis-assembled floral rope, along with pink silk flowers adhered using a glue gun. Various sizes of vellum butterflies from Joy Crafts (can be purchased here) embellished with Stardust Stickles on the edges are randomly attached to each 7" high letter. Each letter is filled with sand to keep them upright.

Here are more photos of each letter:





Back of the letters:

I have a great time making this for Gail: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO A GREAT GAL!!!!!
