Engagement card and box

One of my nieces announced her engagement a few days ago so I thought I'd make a special card for her, and a box for it too.

I started with a white 8 x 8 card blank and cut 2.5 inches off the right side of the front. I decorated the front with a purple mat and then cream card which had been embossed with the Tonic Amelia embossing folder. I chose a Hunkydory Engagement verse from the Second Little Book of Poetry and put it on a purple mat. I put this on the front with foam pads.

The inside of the card was decorated with embossed cream card on a periwinkle mat, and hearts decorated with the couple's initials cut using the Tonic Clarice die and Affections hearts. I created an area to write with cream paper on a purple mat and added the Celebrate Tonic Miniature Moments die.

To make the box I used the Hunkydory Adorable Scoreboard. I created a double mat using purple and cream card, and decorated it with cream card embossed using the Amelia embossing folder, the Affections heart and the couple's initials.

I hope you like this project, thanks for stopping by, if you've time to leave a comment I'd really appreciate it.

Easel birthday card for Mom

this is the birthday card I made for my Mom, I started it last year but then lost it and thought I'd thrown it away by accident - so I had to buy a card for her!! Then months later I found the bits and pieces so thought I'd put it all together and finish it off for her birthday this year.

It's a 7 x 7 easel card made using mainly Tonic products: Amelia embossing folder, Budding Vine panel die, Bellus Buttercup flower, Pretoria alphabet and the sentiment from the Pansy die set. I'm not sure what dies I used for the foliage though as I cut them last year!

I was aiming for a fresh look and I think the cream, yellow and green card combo achieved this, my Mom was pleased with the card which is the main thing.

Thanks for stopping by, if you've time to leave a comment I'd really appreciate it.

Fairy birthday card

I made this birthday card for my niece who was a bit like Agnes from the Minions movies when she was little, and likes unicorns!

I used an 8 x 8 black card blank and the Hunkydory Twilight Kingdom kit, plus some marble Adorable Scorable card as a mat for the topper. Then I added some lilac pearls to finish it off.

I forgot to take a photo of the inside and have already left the card for her! However what I did was use an insert on the right side and put a matching border down the left of the insert. I also cut a unicorn from white card using the Magical Kingdom Moonstone die set and added that to the left side of the inside.

Thanks for stopping by, please leave a comment if you'd like to.

Happy halloween

these are my cards for the Fairy and Unicorn October Challenge, also the first Halloween cards I've ever made!

The first one is made using the Skellie Gossip stamp from IkesArt which I mounted on to black card and then added cobwebs to the corners. I created the background and sentiment using Craft Artist and some Halloween digikits which I then layered on to the same card, then added the skeleton image using some foam pads.

The second one is also from IkesArt and is called Trick or Treat. For this one I made my first Z fold card. I coloured the image using Promarkers in Orange, Terracotta, Gold, Almond and Black, plus Spectrum Noir CG3 Green. I cut the image with an oval die and layered on to black card. I decorated the Z fold piece with orange card which I'd embossed with a dotty embossing folder and layered it on to black card. I used green card to match the dress for the top panel. To finish it off I drew a cobweb and added a Trick or Treat sentiment and a pumpkin.

I hope you like the cards, please join us at the Fairy and Unicorn Challenge this month.

Another anniversary card

this is an anniversary card made for my bother and sister-in-law.

I basically used two 8 x 8 cards with the backs glued together, I then scored the two fronts down the middle to create a folded back gate fold card.

To decorate the inside I had chosen a page from the Hunkydory Little Book of Anniversaries which I layered on to silver mirri and then I created a mat of pink patterned paper to co-ordinate with the image. 

On the two front panels I matted and layered the same pink patterned paper on to silver mirri to create two panels. I decorated the panels with the Tonic Happy Anniversary sentiment, Affections heart and initials cut using the Tonic Clarice alphabet, all cut from deep pink card and silver mirri layered together.
