Treat Box Card (2)

4 Mar

Lil' Monster

Here is the other Treat Box Card.  I just love this card.  I haven’t made a child’s card in years.  Most probably when my children were small.  Trace the template onto yellow card stock, score and fold as shown.  Cut out a small window and add acetate behind the window opening.  Stamp the monsters onto light yellow and dark yellow with a black stamp pad.  Cut out.  Make a tag from dark yellow card stock and punch a hole and thread orange ribbon through.  Add scrapbook paper to the card.  Measure half way up the card and cut diagonally across to the top right side.  Close off the card and put tag inside the card.  I coloured in the monsters with pencil crayons and added as shown.  Flowers and gems were added for embellishment. The stamped used were from Hero Arts and the ink was Versafine – black.  This will be a great card for party invitations, just pop in some sweets and send out invites to all you kids friends for the party!  Have fun!  The template was designed by Melanie  Schulenberg.

Treat Box Card

Spring Tree

Hey Bloggers and Stampers!  What a lovely cool morning in Pretoria, which is still gonna turn out to be a very hot day.  Yesterday, I had a workshop with this beautiful Treat Box Card.  The ladies just loved making this.  This is such a lovely idea to put small gifts into the box side and then to have a message on the card side.  It’s all in one!

We traced the template onto pink card stock. The template is a Melanie Schulenberg design. Cut out the design and score using a Score Pal or bone folder.  I then stamped the tree (Country Craft stamps) with Distress Stain Walnut Stain and cut out.  Six pink flowers were stamped (Country Craft stamps) and cut out.  The small flowers were punched using the Olba punch set, and embossed using an embossing tool to lift the flowers up and to look 3-D.  All is put together with scrapbook paper and tiny gems.  The box is on the right side and the card is on the left side.  A message can be written inside the card now.  Small gifts can be put inside, such as, sweets, money, make-up, gift vouchers (if they are not plastic!) etc.  The possibilities are endless.  Have fun!

Eiffel TowerHey Bloggers!  What a lovely technique to do.  Stamp the image onto white card stock and stamp with white embossing powder.  Heat set the image with a heat gun.  Then dab Walnut Stain Ink pad and Faded Jeans Ink pad onto a craft sheet.  Spritz Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearl Mist onto the dabbed colours.  Pick up the colour with your fingers and colour in the stamped image.  When dry, adhere to blue card and then to folded latte card stock.  Add Glossy Accents to top postage mark.  Add flower, gem brad, ribbon and pearls to card.

This is  a Twisted Easel Card using one of the pieces from the 12 in 1 scrapbook paper.  The idea is to use up all your paper to make twelve cards from one scrapbook paper.  You can also stamp a scrapbook paper to create a background.

In last month’s workshop, we worked on a theme of the Mad Hatter.  We used the template of a hat and turned it into a card.  Simple stamping was done using Versafine purple stamp pad.
