Card in a Box

Well it's all systems go in our house with the reno's amd it was time to pack up the craft studio last week ready for  new paint, carpet and a much needed redesigning of my storage!  But just before the big pack up I managed to get in there and play with some paper and dies.

I have seen a lot of "Cards in a Box" designed by some talented Stampin Up ladies on Pintrest and on You Tube. So I decided to have a go at creating some of my own for some special birthdays.

The actual process of creating the card base was so easy and then the fun really starts with the embellishment and theming.  Can I say I think I am addicted and can't wait to get back into my refurbished craft studio to make some more.

So here is what I created:


The debut card was for gorgeous Great Niece for her first birthday and the second and slightly larger one was for my dear friend Angie for her 50th.

I must say I did like the slightly larger version as I had a little more area to work with and could incorporate some larger die cut elements.

So here are some close ups of the two cards:

Elsie's 1st Birthday






Angie's 50th Card




It was so much fun creating these cards using some of my favourite Echo Park and My Minds Eye papers, MFT die-namics, Elizabeth Design dies and Simon Says Stamps and Dies.

Here are the links to the tutorials I used to get started:

Embossing Paste - With Love

Hi there and thanks for dropping by.  I am back today to share another card created using embossing paste.  I just love using this product as I tallows me to incorporate an added dimension to my cards.


 For this card I used Wendi Vecci White Embossing Paste and an MFT Stencil.




 
The added embellishments on the card was made with a selection of my MFT dies and a few Martha Stewart punches.
 
 
 
The flower was the smallest royal rolled rose and I teamed it up with the bitty tag from their blueprints 6.  I also used two of their delicate doilies (one of my newest purchases which I know I will use over and over again - they are so cute).  The heart, leaves and circle were all made with MS punches and the word love was an MFT die.  I added some buttons, washi tape and a teeny peg.  The word with was from a sticker collection by Authetique.  The papers were from the Authetique Flourish Collection.  I love the 6x6 paper pad from the collection - the colours and patterns are so soft but bold in parts too.  Love the colour scheme of the collection - greys, mustard, pinks and green. 

 
 
Once again thanks for stopping by, would love to hear from you if you would like to add a comment too!
