A box for the book cards..

Leave a comment

IMG_0762 In the previous post I explained how I made my book cards. After I had made them I realised they needed boxes to put them in so I made a box with a lid , but then realised that the lid needed decorating too, which all adds to the time and cost of making them so for this third book I made the box and cut a huge part of the lid away and backed it with a sheet of acetate so that you can see the box inside and it eliminates the need for decoration. Finally I am happy with the process and ready to make many more! we are going to a wedding in a couple of months so the next book card I make will be a wedding design. Til tomorrow…


Floral sprays and a box..

Leave a comment

Another example of my handmade floral spray used on a card.The papers are Kaisercraft PS I love you,and the die is paper rose Ornate circle . I used a collectable doily¬† ( from the paper collection) under the circle. This card could be used for wedding, engagement or anniversary..or even Valentines day!Quick post today as it’s awfully hot sitting here at the computer, I am going to find a nice spot under an airconditioning vent to sit and read a good book! til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Velvet crush number 11


IMG_2074 (Medium)I found another Kaisercraft velvet Crush card that I hadn’t posted! The card ( on the left) makes use of the matching collectables in the range, and some kaisercraft and prima flowers and ribbon. ( the cardstock is stampin up pink pirouette and black) and when I had finished it I realised it wouldn’t fit into an envelope as the flowers were too bulky, so I made a box and decorated it to match. I like making these card boxes, so you may be seeing some more of them… may have to do a youtube video of how to make….I had a great morning over at Paper Flourish this morning, met up with some friends, had an enjoyable card club, and bought some new papers from Prima, Tim Holtz,and heartfelt creations and can’t wait to start making with them. Til tomorrow….
