Celebration Card

Hi friends,
Blogging after a long time... Little one keeps mumma too busy...

Anyways, today I'm sharing a latest card I made for a fellow crafter's birthday...

It's a beautiful CAS card.

The image is stamped twice using Archival inks Cobalt on Brustro watercolour paper. Stamp used is Justrite Rose Garden Background Stamp. The stamped images are coloured using Zig Clean Colour Real Brush pens... Out of the two stamped images one is fussy cut to layer the flowers and the second one is cut to half and layered on a sea green CS.

Sentiment 'Celebrate' is heat embossed using Ranger embossing powder Gold. Finally the entire card is layer on a white CS.

I loved making this card!!!

Boxed Album

Hi Friends,
These days scrapbooking is so in... personalise gifting is another trend people are opting for...
My this new project is a combination of both. A personalise Scrapbook.
A very good added feature to this Scrapbook is, its a boxed Scrapbook... Lets have a look...

The box is made out of chipboard. The 'XOXO' on the top of the box is cut using my priceless possession 'Silhouette Cameo 2'. (Though the cut file is not mine but taken from the internet). Few XOXO are highlighted with the different pattern papers used inside the album. Flowers used are ready mulberry flowers & foam flowers with satin leaves. The edges are finished with adhesive rhinestones.

Let's check the inside...

When opened, the sides of the box fall off. There are 6 pages bind to the each sides. The inside of the lid is used to keep the tags. These can be used to write messages...

Every page has a sliding photo mat within it. 

The complete look... This album holds 44 photographs & 12 tags.

The center pages...

The tags on the center pages....
The roses and leaves are stamped (using distress inks) separately and die cut using coordinating dies.  

The inside of the box base too has similar tags...

The ribbon to hold the tags in place is made using MS border punch and pattern paper scraps...

All the tags are die cuts...

This project is inspired from the similar projects from fellow crafters... thanks to all of them!!!
