Hello! It is time again for another inspiring Paper Crafts Blog Hop! Today we are celebrating the milestone issue Card Creations: Volume 10:
What a beautiful cover! This is a must-have magazine! It is available here. And you will be able to win it, too! But we'll come to that later. First, it is all about 10. In honor of this 10th issue, I have decided to create a birthday card set of 10 cards:
First, the packaging. I used two clear boxes my PTI stamps came in, trimmed off the tops, assembled them and embellished them. To close my box, I created a lid from matching patterned paper.
Now, let's open it:
I made five cards with a "cooler" look and five cards with a "prettier/feminine" look and they are separated by those two assembled boxes.
For the cards, I used one design, but two different paper collections from Crate and it worked really well. First the feminine cards using the Pretty Party collection:
Simple doesn't mean boring, so I tried to add more dimension with foam tape behind the pretty elements. The background stamp is from Hero Arts for Studio Calico and it is so versatile! Different ink makes it look completely different every time. Here come the "cooler" cards, using the Storyteller collection:
The background looks completely different here, doesn't it? Here are all the cards in one picture:
I think this set would be a great gift for Mother's Day. Ok. Now to the giveaway details!
