Prized Peony - 5" x 7" Card Box - Video Tutorial


I'm sharing another Video with you today. This time it shows you how to create a different size Card Box. This one will hold a 5" x 7" card.

This isn't a size I make that often but it is one of our standard sizes and is very popular :o)


I used the Prized Peony stamp set again to decorate it. The idea was just to create a box to hold the Shaped Easel Card I created in my last Video (HERE) - but I ended up making another one too :o)


The main colour used here was Seaside Spray ... and I made a 'normal' side-opening rectangular card this time but kept the layout the same as for my Shaped Easel card.


Here is the Box and card together. This card is actually smaller than 5" x 7" but it's bigger than a standard card, so the Box is fine for it.

You can find the details for the card HERE.



The colour used for this one was Rococo Rose.

Here is the Video ...


Measurements

Rococo Rose – Base                                                   8” x 6   

Thick Whisper White – Lid                                        8 3/16” x 6 3/16”

 

Score the Base and Lid at ½” on ALL sides                 

          

 

Ribbon approx..                                                          11” (28cm)

 

 

You will also need additional Whisper White and Rococo Rose card to complete this project.

Beautiful Friendship - With The In Colours


Today's card is one I didn't think I would be showing you :o)

I used the Beautiful Friendship stamp set and all of the newest In Colours.

I didn't like it at all when I first started the stamping. I really struggle with Magenta Madness - it's just too bold a colour for me even though I love bright colours. It's quite satisfying though when I create something with it that I actually like.

I didn't stop stamping and continued to use all the In Colours - I thought I might as well finish the panel ... and then I liked it :o) It's bold and busy, but the overall effect for me is good - so I ended up using the panel in a card.


The ribbon is our Bumblebee Gingham.

The speckles were stamped using the splatter stamp from the Waterfront set.

Prized Peony - Shaped Easel Card - Video Tutorial


In today's Video I show you how I created these gorgeous Shaped Easel cards.

They are very simple to do and you can use your standard-sized cardstock to make them.


I used the beautiful Prized Peony stamp set for the flowers and the Peaceful Moments set for the sentiment.


The colours used on this first card are Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and a little Mango Melody for the flower centres.


This is what the card looks like closed. With the Flowers extending past the sides, it measures just under 7" x 5" and would fit into a standard envelope for that size card. Alternatively, you could create a box for it. 


This is the card I created in the Video. I used Rococo Rose, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody.


The Whisper White panel used on the front has been embossed using the Dainty Diamonds 3D folder.

I used dies from the Celebration Labels set to create the card base and the layers.


The Faceted Dots used on the front of the card are now retired. Alternatively, you could use some of our Basic Rhinestones and colour them with a Dark Blends marker - I did this with the first card using the Dark Pumpkin Pie.



Here is the Video ...
