Birthday Gift Card Box

I bought a close friend a gift card for a book store (we are both book junkies) in honor of her birthday, but of course I needed a wonderful wrapping for it.
I made a fun box using both my Cricut and Cameo machines. The box is a fun gift card holder box I bought form the Silhouette Store. I removed the Happy Birthday that comes on the lid to add my own instead.
Next, I played in Cricut Craft room with the Out of Character Circle cartridge. It includes some great layered word art and I had never played with it before. I laid everything out and took my time getting the hang of resizing objects on CCR.
4 layers down, 1 to go!
After I layered all my pieces and glued them together I embossed a simple white layer for my lid and put on my "birthday" cut with large glue dots. I had to add my favorite dot the "i" item as well in a little stick on bling!   
I love this fun box and have a feeling I will be making them a lot more. Gift cards are such an easy gift. Hope everyone is ready for a great week.
