Morning.
Stacy Cohen here, and If you’re like me, you like to keep lots of birthday cards on hand for all the birthdays that seem to sneak up on us every month.  The new Queen & Co. Pretty Presents Kit gives you everything you need to make a whole bunch of eye-catching birthday cards.  One of my favorite things about this kit?  The cute sentiment stamp set!! 
 
I made all the cards below using the Pretty Presents Kit with just a few additional items here and there, as noted.
 
First up is a card using the smallest sized foam pop-up presents from the kit.  I filled the presents with the little bow toppings, then also added a couple tiny bows to my stamped sentiment.

For this next card I die-cut a large circle from the front of the card, then I added the foam pop-up present on the inside of the card so it shows through the front.  I adhered some Sparkle String around the circle to give it a little oomph. 
Extra supplies:  Sparkle String, Twine

With the adorable present dies and sentiment stamps included in this kit, the number of cards you can make is endless!  The next card uses only die-cuts without the foam.  I die-cut the presents out of white cardstock and adhered them to a background I had colored with vibrant watercolors.  To add a little sparkle, I filled the centers of the present with transparent glitter.
Extra supplies:  Sparkle String

Last but not least, I made the following card by cutting off the top portion of the card front and adding a row of presents.  I added a little handstitching to the front, then finished it off with faux stitching inside.
Extra supplies:  Pinwheels, Opals
 
Now I’m set on birthday cards for a while!
Stacy!
