time taken to visit me, and make a comment.
My card today is a card and a box I made for a friends
Those of you who know my work by now will know I like
to decorate my box to go with the card.
The ingredients for this is.
I made a grey 8x8 card out of 2 A4 pieces of card.
I didn't have the right colour pattered pearlised card so I
inked a cream one with a mixture of pigment inks I had.
This came out a lovely shade of peach.
I cut out an aperture with the Spellbinders Grand Scolloped
Then I cut a smaller one and glued it with sticky pads.
I made a 70 on my Cricut machine, and I also made my
roses with different size flowers off the george basic
cartridge. Glued the edges and dipped them in glitter.
I cut some Spellbinders Parisian Accents and put two
colour ribbons between.
I didn't have the right colour ribbons so you've guessed
it I died them with a combination of distress ink and
Cautionary tale wear gloves for the grey.
I added some peach flat backed pearls to the edges of
The Butterfly was made out of Spellbinders Fanciful Flight
The box was made in a similar way but I din't have any
more of the patterned card.
I used a Martha Stewart Punch for round the edges of the
top of the box. This was the large Daisy Punch I think
you can just see part of it.
Well thats all for today folks.
I hope you like it.
Not sure about the peel offs on the 70 of the card.
What do you think.
I hope you all have a wonderful Monday.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny.
