Today was our Club workshop where we were making Diamond fold cards.
I decided to make mine as an early Mothers Day card and combine it with a new challenge blog I've found over at The Play Date Cafe where they have this colour palette for us.
Cranberry . . . Raspberry . . . Petal
This is my card. Cherry Cobbler ( Cranberry ), Melon Mambo (Raspberry), and Pretty in Pink (Petal)
and here is a side view
This is the card inside a box I've made with an acetate wrap, and with ribbons across opposite corners topped with a bow to keep the box from sliding out of the wrap.
Here is a photo of the side of the box
First I scored some white card to create the central diamond, and then I decorated the ends with cards that had been border punched, and added ribbon. I used Jacqueline's SU dies for the layered central panel, which I then decorated with flowers that I'd stamped onto white card and cut out, and arranged with the middle flower raised on 3D pads and a bow, all under the MUM sentiment. I made the box bottom in white card, and scored some acetate to make the wrap.
Card = Cherry Cobbler, Pretty in Pink, and Whisper White
Stamps = Ornate Flowers and Papermania sentiment
Inks = Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink, and Certain Celery
Tools = Cuttelbug ( Jacqueline's ), SU Dies, and Martha Stewart punch
Extras = Acetate and Ribbons
As I mentioned the other day, I'd helped Nathan make a valentine card for his friend Adelaide. He did all the designing and stamping himself, even though I was there to help him, he told me that he wanted it done "his way, or no way!!", the little Diva.
What do you think of his talents? I wonder where he got them from?
He even decorated the inside.
The inks and majority of the stamps are SU, but there are a few toppers and unknown stamps that Boris the Elf had sent him!!
Well that's all for now, I'm hopefully having my hospital treatment tomorrow, so I'll be back soon.
Have a great weekend whatever you're doing
