Post#38 Stamped Background Card

The best part about stamps is that you can use most of them repeatedly to create a custom background for your card instead of looking for a coordinating printed paper which works with your layout….
Here I have used a tiny circular stamp to create a background….and the silver sequins give it a bit of sparkle…The main sentiment is stamped directly onto the front panel and the same ink was used to stamp and punch one circle which was then adhered onto the card with adhesive foam squares….
The two feathers were stamped on vellum paper, heat embossed with white embossing powder,coloured in and die cut before attaching to the card…
Hope you liked this card.

Post#25 Match Box Style Small Gift Box

Sometimes we just don’t know how to wrap a small present…..the shops usually hand things to us in a standard bag and tissue paper packaging which is often too big for the item itself…And for this very reason I like this match box style gift box…
The slide out part of the box is very easy to make using the envelope punch board…the outer layer is simply scored to fit around that …and then to decorate I put on an adhesive printed tape around the box lid….added a couple of die cut feathers and punched flowers….and the box was ready…
Hope you liked it.
