Life looks Beautiful…

Happy Thursday 

Also known as throw back Thursday! Today I’m Sharing a project I designed a while back for class. It was a beautiful box containing four cards all using the beautiful you stamp set. 


The box opens up and has a sleeve at each side. To be fair it could probably hold eight cards comfortably. I have created this in so many different colours and it makes a beautiful present. 


I used my favourite colours for this set… well my favourite for that day anyway! Sweet sugar plum and rich razzleberry and as always a generous splattering of rhinestones. 

I’m not sure about you but I am such a particular person when it comes to colouring. For me you shouldn’t see the pen lines, it takes the professional look away (but then I am amloytle OCD when it comes to my crafting). I achieve this look by colouring it twice this seems to work like a blender and makes the colouring smooth and flawless.:: give it a try and let me know what you think. 


The card above also uses a little paper piecing. If you haven’t done this before it’s so simple. Just stamp onto DSP and fussy cut before adhering to the image on your card front. I particularly liked this pattern for the middle ladies dress, classy! 


For the third card I sketched a longer dress and instead of long sleeves I made a strappy dress and gloves just with a few clever lines. I can’t take credit for this idea though I saw it on Pinterest! I used the itty bitty punches bird builder for the floral detail and I know hey are retired but sometimes you just gotta keep old stuff! There are lots of new alternatives you could swap in. 


And the final card… lots of torn edges, ribbon and LOTS of bling! What’s not to love?
