Multifold Keepsake Box

Hello guys. Recently one of my friends asked me to create a keepsake box for her little baby boy. She wanted to keep tiny stuff in the box and at the same time wanted it to be a bit sturdy as well.  The brief was to use bright spring colors and figures to make it look attractive for the baby.

Here is the box that I created. It is a multifold box..... not sure if there is any other specific name for this. It has four cascading compartments to store stuff and it closes neatly into one compact box with lid.

I used small pieces of velcro to fasten the box with straps. The leather looking cover is actually a paper which I got from a local store. It gives a very sophisticated look to the box. When opened it gives a bright and cheerful look with all the fun colors and the foam animals and figures.

So Spring!!

Heya folks! I am sharing a card after a long time today. My LO leaves no time for me to do anything else now.... so I am not going to be very regular with my posts and my blog.

Nevertheless, I found some time today to post this card which is inspired by everything spring. The bright and colorful flowers and the greenery reminds me of the fresh season. The background is also bright to add to the cheerfulness of the card. I used a stencil to make the bg and then cut out a portion of the bg to give a framed look. All the elements here are stamped and then fussy cut. The stamp set used is Avery Elle Petal and Stems.

You are Incredible - Altenew Challenge

Hello. Today I am sharing a card which I made for the Altenew Challenge which is to get inspired by Places Abroad - Dubai Mosque.
I was so excited to see this challenge because I had visited this mosque when I went to Dubai last year. It is truly a spectacular place and so pristine.
I made this card inspired by the second photo. The window is handcut using the template from a key ring packaging that I had purchased from Dubai. The outer design is made using a stencil and weathered wood distress ink.

For the inner design, I used the Persian Motifs stamp set and embossed it using ranger silver embossing powder. And then colored the design from behind using distress inks. To give it a stained glass look I joined the design with lines and embossed it.
