This gift ensemble screams spring and is sure to bring a smile to someone’s face. The topiary is made using punches, die cuts and, of course, a little bling. The cutest thing about the topiary is that the bottom box opens in the front, and you can put in a few pieces of chocolate or tuck another little gift in there. The birthday card is embossed, watercolored, fussy-cut, and layered and then the envelope is lined with Designer Series Paper (DSP). It’s so relaxing to paint the flower with Aqua Painters, and having layers adds dimension. The little gift tag and bag finish the ensemble, and then you are ready to give this set to a special someone. Bonus is the cute little Lady Bug.

The tutorial for this beautiful project, which was designed by Carole Anne Patterson, can be found at Craft Project Central.
