CASE-ing Joyce

Hello friends, I am back with a card. This has been sitting with me for couple of weeks but I was not able to post it. Making a last minute entry in HLS November CASE the designer challenge.

The card was made keeping the gorgeous card created by Joyce. You can see the beauty below.

I was inspired by the selective coloring of the card.  And here is my version of it.

I was not too happy with the card but nevertheless loved coloring it. Used the water color pencils for the color. I did not use any sentiment as wanted to keep options open for all occasions :)

Have a great day !

Cardboard Gift Box

Hey friends it's been ages I did not have any post. Kind of unplanned break ! Initially it was due to health issues in family and later with all the festivities around did not get any chance to write a post. I was working on few crafts though but did not post them, so I have a long list craft to be shared. You will quite a few posts in coming days.

Well starting with the latest I have created.

This was fun creating as I was trying to teach my son how to create a box from cardboard. Thought will create just the box and leave it but actually went on to give it finishing!

I had 1 piece of rectangular cardboard from some clothing we recently got. I followed a tutorial (here) to create the box which is super easy. Once done, used PP to cover it. Used distress ink over the edges and some glitter on the surface. Added few pearls and created flower using few elements.
For the inside, colored it brown.

Inside look.

I don't know what to call the petals which is used to create the flower. I had bought if long back but never used it. It reflects different colors red/pink, orange,golden with different light intensity. One of the snap to show how the color changes.

Would love to share for Lessology - Let's get organized challenge (I have recycled the dress cardboard here)
