Money Envelope.


I am sharing a money envelope I made recently , using 'Hydrangea Lawns' pattern paper from 'Dress My Craft'.

I made a shaker window on the front using heart shaped nesting dies.

I fussy cut flowers and birds from the coordinating motif sheet. The sentiment also I cut from the sheet. I filled the shaker window with shaker elements from 'Dress My Craft'.

On the back side flap I added fancy strings from an old wedding card, as closure.

On the inside I made a pocket to keep the money and added a magnet on the pocket to hold the coin, since it is our custom to add 1₹ coin to make the amount odd numbered.

I added a tag for personal message and a sentiment to wish the young married couple.

Materials used:

Shaker elements: Crystal Blue Sequins

Hope you like my creation.Thank you for stopping by. Till next time

Pop it up with foam


I am sharing today a birthday card I made recently. I have used Graphic 45 pattern papers.

I cut an oval frame and popped it up with foam tape. I layered the oval window with pattern paper and added few fussy cut flowers. I added foam tape below the fussy cut images to give a dimensional effect. 

I added my handmade flowers and die cuts on the panel. I added few crystal drops inside the oval panel too.

I layered the inner panel with pattern paper and made a small corner pocket for message tag. 

Hope you like my card which is my DT Inspiration for Southern Girls Challenge. The challenge for this month is 'Pop it up with foam'. 

Thank you for stopping by. Till next time - Happy Crafting!!

Southern Girls Challenge - # or more patterned papers


Today I am sharing a simple tag I made as my DT inspiration, using the digi image from Paper Shelter.

I printed the image onto a white card stock and colored it with copic markers. I then fussy cut the image.

I cut  a tag out of a scrap piece of black card stock and layered it with pattern paper and other embellishments. I added a red seam binding ribbon and added a sentiment cut from a paper pack collection.

Z- fold Birthday card.

Hi there,

Today I am sharing a Z-fold card. The card size is 8 1/4" x 5 3/4". I checked YouTube for videos on Z fold card and all the cards were A5 size. I wanted to make an A4 one, so I tweaked the measurements.

The card base I used pink card stock and layered it with white card stock and pattern paper from  Bob n Betty - 'Feel Like a Butterfly'. This is one of my favorite paper pack. 
I decorated the central Z fold with handmade peonies and filler flowers. I fussy cut a butterfly and added foam tape under the wings for 3D effect.

I was requested to add a photograph of the recipient. So I added this on inner fold of Z. I printed the sentiment and foiled it with my Minc. I added two tags on the inner panels for writing personal message.

A spread view of the card with the tags. before I added the smalled Z fold I made a tag pocket on the inner panel. 

I made a matching box cover. Since all my cards are dimensional I always make a matching box cover.

Hydrangea Birthday Wishes.

Hello peeps,

Today I want to share a birthday card I made recently. I used 'Hydrangea Lawn' pattern paper from Dress My Craft. This is a beautiful collection of papers and I have been wanting to use it. And I was able to use it at last!! and here is my card..

I layered my white card base with purple and white cardstock and the pattern paper. I die cut the edges of the card stock and the pattern paper, with Spellbinders border dies.

 I made purple colored flowers using Cheery Lynn 'Sweet Williams' die and filler flowers using dies from Elizabeth Craft Design. I arranged the flowers and added few leaves and die cuts, also added few fussy cut butterflies from the paper pack.  I added a doily, cut with Prima 'Crochet Doily' die. I also added a triple loop bow. The sentiment was heat embossed and die cut with fish tail banner die and embellished with enamel dots. 

On the inner panel I added a corner pocket with one my favorite HFC die. I foiled the message on the inner panel and layered it with card creator dies from Spellbinders. I added a tag in the corner pocket,  cut using tag die, for writing special personal message. Hope you are able to make it out since it is camouflaged with the background (lol).

To finish, I made a box for the card and decorated with fussy cut images and sentiment from the paper set.

Hope you like my card. Thank you for visiting. Your love and opinion means a lot to me. So do leave a message.

Till next time
Happy Crafting!
