Special Request Boxed Card
Happy Tuesday everyone!! I can't believe another week is over so fast, where does the time fly??? My cardmaking has taken a back seat to some doctors visits with Thijs last week, but now those are over it's time to get cracking again.
I have been working on this card for a while and it has been a bit of a labor of love, nothing went easy on this one but now that it's complete I have to say I really like it. This is the 3rd card I have made like this with six panels all being different and although they are very time consuming they can be a lot of fun to make. The request from a lovely lady was for pinks and lavender colors and pansy flowers. I have included some pansies but also some other flowers too. The tin box I got from Joann's and covered it with DCWV embossed paper, pink and lavender ribbons, flowers, Swarovski crystals and gems from Michael's. The card has 6 panels all machine stitched and decorated with lots of goodies.
The pansy stamp is from Hero Arts
brushed silver oval bookplate from JoAnnCraft Essentials
Small flower stamp is from All Night Media
vintage metal button is from LA Mode
Swarovski crystal beads (hanging from the button), and ribbons are from Michael's
Swarovski crystal gems on tin also from Michael's
Epoxy butterfly is from K&Co - Brenda Walton
Gems are from Say it in Crystals
I just noticed I took the photo before I added the last sign....Oh well!!, On the left side underneath the pansy is "Just For You". It looks a bit bare on the photo but looks complete in real life!!!!
Let me know what you think!!
Now I need to get to work on my other cards and do my first Mojo Monday card.....a bit late!!!
Have a great week and I look forward to posting something else soon.
