Notecards Gift Boxes - Punched Design

I made these Notecards Gift Boxes few months back but was not able to post them. I have few more with different designs as well. This one is the Tile Punch Design. I made 2 boxes of the same pattern: one in blue and one in yellow. I haven't used the MS scoreboard to make them as my score board arrived much later :) I made my own templates for the boxes.
 Each box has a set of 3 notecards matching the outer design and in 3 different colors.
 The box and the three notecards.
 Here are the 2 boxes with the notecard set.
Do let me know how you liked my gift box set. I plan to put 3 matching envies also in the box. These are ideal for gifting.

The BIG Bow Card

Ok so I made this card keeping in mind 2 challenges: For the love of Crafting - BINGO Color Challenge and Itsy Bitsy's Big B challenge.
Hope I did justice to both the challenges. This card is sort of inspired from the cards I posted day before yesterday. I have used MS deep edge arches punch. I punched a 2 1/2 inch wide strip from both sides. Then I tied the bow on the punched strip and then adhered it to the base.
 Front view of the card...
 These flowers are handmade. I made them in many colors. They are pretty easy to make with a 5 petal punch. I used the blue ones here too for baby rocker card.
 And here is the pretty bow. Isn't the brad so cute! I love these brads so much that I hardly use them. Don't want them to get over. I made those small pins by weaving the beads in a wire.

It's freebie time today. To download the image, right click and Save As. Keep checking my Freebies/Templates section for more and let me know your feedback about this.
Please link back to my blog if you use this sentiment.

Baby Boy Rocker Card

Hey peeps! I made a rocker card for the first time. I think its perfect for a baby card as it rocks like a baby's cradle. I made a baby boy themed card for a dear friend who was blesse with a baby boy this week.
The pattern paper is from Paper Mania. And the image is also from Paper Mania "Me to You" pack. The flowers are handmade using 5 petal punch. The sentiment is a free digi stamp from Tracey's blog.
I have used assorted stickers to decorate the inside of the card.. The small footprints punch is from Itsy Bitsy.
Do lemme know how you like this card. I also made a similar baby girl card. Will share it soon.

CASEd Card

I absolutely fell in love with this card that I saw on Pinterest and could not hold myself back from replicating it. Although Carol has used a laser cut for this, I have used my MS Lace Punch for the card. It was so easy to make these cards that I made two of them at one go.

Thanks for dropping by. Have a great day!

Pocket Card

Hi guys. This card is inspired by the pocket card illustrated by Nikita at Lulupu. The fold is not exactly similar to her card. I saw this particular fold on You Tube.

White on White Wedding Card

Hi everyone! Hope all of you had a great weekend. I made this white on white card for BGC challenge over the weekend. I really liked this challenge and as soon as I read about it, I started visualising this card in my mind.
It is a center step card and I used an A4 sheet for this. So the card is quite big. I have used lots of punches here. The bride dress is made using paper doileys. I used two doileys to layer the dress.
 Here is a side view of the card.
I have used Martha Stewart Double Arches punch for the sides and Diamond Fence for the inner sides on both sides. I also used  Diamond Fence punch for the bottom panel.
Here's a close look at the sentiment and the hearts that I cut out from the lattice heart punch. 
Not sure if you noticed it. I have used a nylon net, that comes with some bottles as part of packaging, for the background behind the bride.

Happy Birthday Bro

Hi. Today I am sharing a card I made for my brother's birthday. It's such a task to make cards for men. I can only think of Blue and Brown colors to be used :)
I have layered 2 PPs for the card and 1 embossed plain blue paper, which is actually not quite visible.
For the center part I did some stamping in black on the blue oval die cut. Then I stuck the alphabets on top of the die cut.
The black ribbon is from my stash and the button is from Pie Lane.
Also wanted to share that I was in Top 3 at Lulupu for their Make you own embellishments challenge for this card and I also won Hussena's challenge at Yvonne's blog for my Sweet peas card.

This Used to be...Price Tags

Hi All. This is the second card I made using Tim Holtz Stamp set. I have used 4 elements from the stamp set to create the bg. If you scroll below, you will see the stamp used and also the elements that were recycled to embellish the card.
 I have made these flowers using 5 petal punch. This is the same punch I used to create the roses here.
 I have used 3 different tags to make the leaves, flowers and to place behind the die cut.
The tutorial to make these leaves is shared here.

In case you missed the other card that I made with same stamp, here it is..
I am entering them in PPS Challenge.

Vintage Charm

Hi peeps! I am so happy to share this card. I had bought this pretty stamp set from Kavitha's store long back and couldn't get to use the Eiffel Tower. I have tried to create a vintage look for this card and you know what, I actually used "vintage" paper for this.
The crumpled paper on top and bottom is from an old Diary from the year 1996. I actually love collecting diaries. I tore it randomly and crumpled and inked the edges to get this look. 
The PP in the middle is from vintage queen Mallika, sent for a PP swap.
I have stamped other elements from the stamp set and cut them to use as embellishments, like the postal stamp on top and the round Paris stamp.
 These are the same flowers I used in my card here. These are made by me using 5 petal punch. The tutorial to make these roses is here. Also see here my tutorial for making the leaves used in the card. I have made them out of old price tags.
 A close-up of the stamp and the charm...The metal charm is from an old friendship band.
I have used this sketch from ICR and flipped it to make my card.
