Hey Everyone! I want to show you one of the cards I've been working on for my next card class. Finished cutting all the kits for this class about an hour ago. Lots and lots of pieces to cut out, took most of the day. The card is actually a box to hold gift tags. The recipient of the card gets a nice surprise on opening the card and finding four gift tags inside. I watched the tutorial on you tube quite awhile ago but never had the chance to make it until now. This is a take on the origami box card but much smaller and easier to make. It uses one sheet of 8 1/2" X 11" card stock, a series of score lines, a cut here and there and a small amount of sticky tape. The tag is made from the Two Tags die from SU embellished with a punch art Santa. The box itself is stamped with the Snow Much Fun stamp set by SU and then colored with watercolor pencils. I finished it by using a belly band to keep the card closed. I'm hoping the ladies in my card class will enjoy making this box card. What do y'all think?
Over The Top Cards & Crafts with Jeannine has a card swap every month. The past three months we have also been doing a recipe card swap. These are my swaps for the month of November. When we are finished with the recipe swap, we will put them into a 6 X 6 album and have a very unique recipe book. We should have over thirty recipes after this swap. Just in time for holiday entertaining.....
I just finished making this cute cupcake box for a friend of mine that loves cupcakes. The box is an Andrea Walford design, I made a template and cut it by hand. I used the crimper to make the base look like an actual cupcake wrapper. The sprinkles on top are pebbles in multi colors. The cherry is a 1 inch circle cut out of SU red glitter paper. It was fun and fairly easy to make. I hope she likes it, what do you think?
I love crafting of any kind. I started with knitting, graduated to needlepoint, embroidery, cross stitch and ended up doing paper crafts. Scrapbooking is my all time love but since becoming a Stampin'Up! demonstrator, love making cards. Card making gives that instant gratification which I love. I love what I do and share when I can.
