Cards.....

Cards can be used for many occasions and bring warmth and joy for both the sender and the recipient. I am not primarily a card maker but have enjoyed creating a few now and then.  It came to me that a card gift set would be wonderful gift and so I have created a card gift box.


The paper collection I used is from kaiser craft, called sweet nothings. The colors of this paper are very soft and allow the chocolate brown accents to stand out. I have continued to employ one of my signature design features through the use of layering and these were created by using paper, card stock, doily, as well different embellishment layers.




Now is probably a good time to share a few of the resources I used to created the finished product :
                                  
                                                Kaisercraft sweet nothings paper collection 
                                                Bazzill cardstock
                                                Chipboard for box construction
                                                Paper doily
                                                Distress ink
                                                Zing embossing powder
                                                Wild orchid crafts base flowers
                                                Petaloo flowers
                                                Distress stains
                                                Kaisercraft clear Stamps
                                                micro buttons
                                                heart brads
                                                chipboard letters
                                                ribbon and bakers twine
                                                lace
                                                butterflies

Next are few close ups so you an enjoy the detail i have managed to achieve. There are few techniques in this creation but none are complicated so give them a go if you have the supplies. I have used heat embossing, distress staining, inking, paper distressing, stamping as well as the construction of the card box itself.
                                                                                   



I trust you have enjoyed seeing my card box and hope that it will inspire you send out some cards or make card gift set for someone. 

Cheers Andrew
