Make a wish...and a sliding gift box

 A little bit of Sale-a-bration,
 a little bit of seasonal catalogue stampsets
 and you have a fairly simple birthday card.
The "Make a wish" stampset is a set of 7 stamps for making birthday invitations, celebrations and I just love the "Make a wish come true" stamp in this collection.
 Months ago it was our girl's birthdays ... we finally got together to celebrate their tenth birthday with lunch and  a swim, fine weather and gifts.
Usually this slider box contains a chocolate bar or block and I can whip up a few of these boxes very quickly with the scoring tool on my cutter or the Simply scored Scoring tool.
 I have used only Sale-a-bration stamps on the boxes.
The cutest elephant and the cupcake from Patterned Occasions.
 For you and happy b-day from Pretty Petites stampset and the matching Curly label punch.
 On the second box it is the cupcake and a cup of hot chocolate with hearts in the steam.
Background stamping is really easy with the large Swallowtail butterfly stamp. It covers he whole box front and back. Then for texture I ran the boxes through the cloud embossing folder.
So appropriate for butterflies.

Oh the slider box bit - ta dah!!!!
When you pull the cotton ribbon - a chocolate (or in this case a calculator) appears.
