First box

First box

This is my first box for the birthday card I made yesterday. I’m pleased with it as I had to make up how to do it!!

I made the background paper with sentiment on the computer. I tied the bow and stuck it on the wreath. I used distress inks to colour card and the punched two butterflies. I curled the wings, layered them and added gems to the body.  I added a cluster of flowers from WOC.

Sweet Blossom birthday card

Sweet Blossom birthday card

This birthday easel card has taken me ages!

I found a free Lily digi and used it to make the frame for Sweet Blossom on my computer.

On the base of the card I used more paper I’d made with the same digi. The butterfly was made using a MS punch (thanks for the inspiration Coops). I coloured some pink card with glimmer mists and Perfect pearls and then punched two butterflies and layered them with a slight uplift on the top one. I added gems to the body.
The raised card with sentiment was decorated with corners, flowers a ribbon and sliding buckle (WOCs) I also used distress inks to colour some lace for the background.

 Another photo to show the 3D effect on the butterfly!

I decorated my flower frame with some additional WOC flowers and used a small butterfly punch in same way to make the little butterflys and added them in frame and added them to give a 3D effect on the top of the card.
Sweet Blossom was coloured with Promarkers and inside the frame I used distress inks and covered with Perfect Pearls.

Around the edge of my backing paper on the top of the card I used Stickles glitter and WOC corners. The edges of the cards were coloured with distress ink and Perfect Pearls.

I’ve finally tried adding flower embellishments to a card!

I have an age to add to the circle once I know the recipient of the card! I used distress inks and perfect pearls to do the background for the LOTV stamp. Image was coloured with Promarkers.The flowers are all WOC. I added a couple of gems to the flowers in her hair.

 I used glitter spray on all the yellow card.
