Love you Mom!

Hello friends,

Sharing a beautiful mother's day card I made today. Although mother's day is celebrated in march here in UAE, I was inspired by the many wonderful mother's day themed challenges going on.

Here's the one I made.

I have used soft shades of pink for this card and have tried to keep it simple yet classy. The die cuts are from cheery lynn. I love these die cuts as they give elegance to any card. 

The tiny rose and rosette are handmade and the heart is glued with loose glitter powder. 

Finally I have embellished this card with pearls, butterflies, punches and a tulle ribbon.

Hope you like it :)

Christmas Wishes!

Hello friends! 

Sharing today a fun Christmas card I made for a friend.

I created this card using a digital image from ‘wee stamps’, which I thought was very cute. I colored it with Copic markers, fussy cut and glued it on a white glittered paper to give it a snow effect.

I also added green and gold glitter strips of papers behind it to add more color. After all its a Christmas card.

The red background paper is embossed with hearts and pasted on white card stock to bring out its color and texture :)

Hope you like it :)

Easel Drawer Card!

Hello Friends

Hope you are having fun crafting!!!  Today I am sharing with you an easy tutorial to make a 5½  x 5 ½ Drawer Easel cardThis is really easy to make and the end product looks really amazing. Hope you guys like it :)

You will need:

-Heavy Cardstock
Two 8 ½  x 7 inch ( A)
One 8 ½ X 8 ¼ inch (B)
One 5 ½ X 11 inch (C)
One 5 ½   X 5 ½ inch (D)
-Scoring Board.

First we are going to make the sleeve of the drawer :)

Take cardstock A and, with the 7 inch short side on the left, score at 1 ½ inch. Repeat along the three sides, leaving the last 8 and half inches side as it is. Repeat the same with the second cardstock A.

Cut the two tabs, fold and burnish the creases. Again repeat the same with second cardstock A as well.

Next glue the tabs with a strong adhesive.

The two boxes are ready :)

Now attach the boxes together by applying glue around the outside of one box and gluing it inside the other. 

This completes the sleeve :)

Now to make the drawer:

Take cardstock B and score at  1 and a half inch on all four sides.

Cut the tabs as shown in the picture, burnish the creases and fold up to form the box. Secure with strong adhesive.

Slide your box into the sleeve. The drawer box card is almost ready :)

Now to make our easel card:

Take cardstock C. Score the long side at 5 ½ and 8 ¼ inches and make mountain folds on both scored lines. 

Attach cardstock D as shown and you are done  :)

Decorate as you like.

I have embellished my card with patterned papers, wet embossed butterfly, diecuts and flowers :)

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and will give it a try!
