funky present birthday card

This card is so simple and easy to make and works so well in many different colours. The only thing that restricts you is the availability of card and paper.

I used the Strips Decoritive Strip from Sizzix, and cut it in two colours. Using just the wiggle section it was mouted at  both edges of the card, you can just see on the inside I have repeated the use of this die cut to add some interest in the middle of the card. The present was cut 3 times using the Present die from the Doodlebug Birthday Set again by Sizzix. Twice in one colour and again in a complementary colour. The top of the box and ribbons were cut out of the top layers and the present decoupaged to give a 3D finish. 

Finally the card was finished using tiny birthday peel of stickers coloured using Peel Off Markers to be a matching colour.
