Our friend turned 50, so I was put to the task by some other friends to create a card and a small box to put our silver present in.
For the card, I used this week's sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. I decided to venture on an easel card, my first ever. I used the a nestability to cut out my circles. The sentiments are freebies I downloaded a long time ago from Scrappedlives (Enjoy) and MMDesigns (circle sentiment). The paper is from a large stack of scrap paper (probably DCWV) I bought several years ago. The flowers with the gems were a birthday present from a friend last year.
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Tuesday Morning Sketches – Sketch 114 (+ use pink)
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge – Anything goes + sparkles
Sentimental Sundays – Anything goes
For the box I used a template created by Ellis Hendriks that I found in a Dutch hobby magazine early this year (Hobbyjournaal no. 72). The original box can be viewed at the creator's blog at Ellis in Scrapland. The box and card were both made with the same scrap paper. The leaves and flowers were made using a Marianne Design die, the ribbon comes from my stash and the flower heart/knob on the lid is actually a magnet from a set I bought at a DIY shop in Heraklion. The flower and the punched tag were both inked with dusty concord distress ink and stamped with stamps from the Clearly hand stamped set from Crafter's Companion.
