Words are all I have, to take you heart away....

Hey crafty bugs,

I had recently made few cards for Mudra Stamps as their DT and you can check them here Mudra .
I would like to share one of the cards which I loved creating because it involved coloring with my Zigs (crazy about them).




Stamped and heat embossed the image and colored with Zig color pens. For the background, on a  white CS I lightly added purple, blue and orange zig colors well diluted with water. Splattered black and purple colors and added few die cuts. Assembled the fussy cut images, and added a few colorless sequins. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment and cut around the letters and mounted it on foam tape.

I am submitting this for the following challenge:

Easel card with drawer

Hello there,

I have a wonderful project to share which I loved doing. It is an easel card with drawer. So what's new in that you might say, many have done this!!
Well It is my first try and I loved the outcome so thought of sharing with you.
You can put trinkets or goodies in the drawer and it will be a 2-in-1 - greetings with a gift. The drawer size is 5" x 5" x1.5".





 I used kraft card stock for the base and layered the pattern papers with black CS. I have used Bob n Betty and Papericious PP , both Indian companies. The flowers are hand made with flower die set from HFC Botanical wings.

Here is one more card that I did. Handmade flowers with the same HFC die.

I love pink color and have used that as the main color and used the rest of the colors also.
My style is a mixture of shabby chic and layered styles.

gift envelope

Hello,
Good day to you!
I made a box type gift envelope that can make your gifting unique and special. You can use it for gifting money, gift card, chocolates etc. I used Papericious Ephemera pack and brown card stock. I decorated with hand made flowers and die cuts.

Here are a few pictures.





I have done a photo tutorial for the envelope. The dimensions are what I used to create, but it can be changed as you require. Always make a template with a scrap paper and then make the final one.

This envelope has two parts a box and a cover.

For the box
  • Take a card stock and trim it to 8.5" x 7.5" in size.
  • On the 8.5" side score .5" from both the ends.
 


  • On 7.5" side score at 3.5" and 4"


  • Cut at 3.5" and 4" up to the half inch mark.


  • Now fold at the score lines. I did not remove the small flaps since I thought it will give a perfect closure at the corners and strength.  
 
  • Fold and glue the side flaps.


The cover. 
  • Trim a card stock to 11" x 8"
  • On the 11" side score at 3 5/8", 4 1/8", 7 3/4" and 8 1/4"
 
  • The remaining 2 3/4" at the end will be the flap. 
  • On the flap end, I marked 1" down from the tip and drew an offset 'V' shape. You can create any shape for the flap. 
  • Decorate with pattern paper and embellishments.
  • I used magnets for closure. If you are using them, stick it before you paste your pattern paper.
Hope the method is clear. This is the first photo tutorial I have done. Suggestions are welcome so that I can improve. Do leave your comments below.
