Birthday Card for a World Traveler

Hi Everyone!

A quick post to share a new card with you ~
A birthday card/treat holder for a world traveler who's turning 53!

The card/treat holder is done like a vintage suitcase.

I have used Tim Holtz's Industrious Metal Technique for the 
embossed metal portions of the case.

Inside the card, there is a compartment to hold a yummy Lindt chocolate bar,
and a sleeve holder for gift cards and tags.

Here is the back side of the card.

Stamp, dies, designer paper, and sentiments are all Tim Holtz.

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day!


I have entered this card in the following challenges:

Your card is FABULOUS! I love the metal technique and embossing, and the inside of your card is as gorgeous as the outside! The candy bar holder is genius. Thank you so much for joining us at the Frilly and Funkie Challenge!!

I ordered the TH Valise die from JoAnns online and looking forward to rcving it. The die is no longer avail in stores. Have a BEE-utiful day!
