Southern Girls Challenge - # or more patterned papers

Hello,

Today I am sharing a simple tag I made as my DT inspiration, using the digi image from Paper Shelter.




I printed the image onto a white card stock and colored it with copic markers. I then fussy cut the image.




I cut  a tag out of a scrap piece of black card stock and layered it with pattern paper and other embellishments. I added a red seam binding ribbon and added a sentiment cut from a paper pack collection.

Stamp used:



Hope you like my inspiration. Waiting to see your take on this challenge. You can check the challenge here → Southern Girls Challenge

Till next time - Happy Crafting!!

Z- fold Birthday card.

Hi there,

Today I am sharing a Z-fold card. The card size is 8 1/4" x 5 3/4". I checked YouTube for videos on Z fold card and all the cards were A5 size. I wanted to make an A4 one, so I tweaked the measurements.



The card base I used pink card stock and layered it with white card stock and pattern paper from  Bob n Betty - 'Feel Like a Butterfly'. This is one of my favorite paper pack. 
I decorated the central Z fold with handmade peonies and filler flowers. I fussy cut a butterfly and added foam tape under the wings for 3D effect.




I was requested to add a photograph of the recipient. So I added this on inner fold of Z. I printed the sentiment and foiled it with my Minc. I added two tags on the inner panels for writing personal message.


A spread view of the card with the tags. before I added the smalled Z fold I made a tag pocket on the inner panel. 



I made a matching box cover. Since all my cards are dimensional I always make a matching box cover.

Hydrangea Birthday Wishes.

Hello peeps,

Today I want to share a birthday card I made recently. I used 'Hydrangea Lawn' pattern paper from Dress My Craft. This is a beautiful collection of papers and I have been wanting to use it. And I was able to use it at last!! and here is my card..



I layered my white card base with purple and white cardstock and the pattern paper. I die cut the edges of the card stock and the pattern paper, with Spellbinders border dies.


 I made purple colored flowers using Cheery Lynn 'Sweet Williams' die and filler flowers using dies from Elizabeth Craft Design. I arranged the flowers and added few leaves and die cuts, also added few fussy cut butterflies from the paper pack.  I added a doily, cut with Prima 'Crochet Doily' die. I also added a triple loop bow. The sentiment was heat embossed and die cut with fish tail banner die and embellished with enamel dots. 


On the inner panel I added a corner pocket with one my favorite HFC die. I foiled the message on the inner panel and layered it with card creator dies from Spellbinders. I added a tag in the corner pocket,  cut using tag die, for writing special personal message. Hope you are able to make it out since it is camouflaged with the background (lol).



To finish, I made a box for the card and decorated with fussy cut images and sentiment from the paper set.

Hope you like my card. Thank you for visiting. Your love and opinion means a lot to me. So do leave a message.

Till next time
Happy Crafting!

I try to be perfect in my creations because of which I spend at least two days in planning alone about the layout and color combinations.

I would like to share a few of my creations. 



  •  Created for Graciellie Design using a digi image and PP from Indian company - Bob n Betty



  • A trifold album using PP from Bob n Betty. Fussy cut butterfly from another paper pack.



  • A tag using Graphic 45 papers for which I won a gift hamper from Graphic 45. I love fussy cutting.

A hexagonal explosion box using pattern paper by another Indian company - Nakshathra Designz, for which I was DT.



  • An easel card with box, tags for personal messages. 

  • A center stepper card, with fussy cut layering and handmade flowers.


I cannot stop myself from sharing one more creation for Conie Fong

Center stepper card

Hello,

Today I am sharing a center stepper card I made recently.  I have used Bob n Betty  'Woodies' paper. I used few die cuts and embellished the card with my handmade flowers.







I fussy cut the flowers from the paper pack and added few foam tapes for dimension.




On the inner panel I added the sentiment. I printed the sentiment on my printer and foiled it on my Minc machine.



I added some chipboard pieces beneath the sentiment so that a space is created for a tag. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on the tag.




So that's the card for today. Till next time , Happy crafting!!
