His&Hers Day 5 (Feminine Card)

By Cards


Hi all,

I am on to day 5 of online card class. Today’s theme is anniversary cards. I thought the cards presented in class today were abosutely adorable, but I wanted to try something a little different. I created a card sketch that I wanted to use on both cards. I thought the results were fantastic and was a bit surprised at how quickly the card came together once I sketched out my design scheme.

Birthday Surprise Box

By Cards, Room Decor

Hi all,

How about something a little different than a card today? For today’s project I’d like to show you a variation on a card…it’s a birthday box! This box in particular was made with a recipient in mind. A friend had asked that I create a box that could contain a small birthday gift and a birthday message. I asked what type of color scheme the recipient would like and was given this color scheme. This box is 100% handmade and then decorated using my stash of all things crafty. The papers are from a DCWV 8×8 paper pack. The flowers and embellishments are just a variety of products from K & Co., Prima, and Basic Grey.



Here is the exterior of the box. It measures approximately 5″L x 5″ Wx 4″H. Although it looks like an ordinary box, the sides have been removed. Once the lid is removed from the box, the four walls collapse and create a bit of a surprise!



Close up of the lid embellishments created with Basic Grey chipboard stickers, Prima flowers and a metallic button brad. VERY dimensional =)



And here is the inside of the box. Once the lid is removed, the four walls collapse and create this visual. Super fun, elegant and colorful.
