Christmas Cards

Here are two very quick Christmas cards. I tried stamps! Stamps that Steph sent me. I inked em up with my regular markers.

I did not do a lot of stuff with these cards and I really wanted to do lots. But I thought I should just try working with the stamps first.

I have also added some green sequence to give it a lil bling.

BearyBox Sketch# 7

I didn't post for two consecutive weeks! And both the sketches that I missed out on were great, I will be working on them in the near future. Here is what I have to show you today.

You should play along, the sketch is great as always. This time around BearyBox is giving away a $10 gift certificate. You can use it to shop at BearyBox, the store.

THIS link will take you directly to the challenge. And while you are there don't forget to appreciate the other designers!

The Invitations are READY!

It’s been a while since I have posted. Today I will be showing you guys the Anniversary Invites I have been talking about. In case you don’t remember, it’s my friend Sofia’s FIRST WEDDING ANNIVERSARY and I am making her these sparkly invitations.
I made total 130 of these and I never thought making 130 cards could be so tiring!

I think if I had punches for the flower and something to automatically cut the swirls that would have helped- A LOT. This is a small 5x5 circular hanging card with a 6x6 bag to go with.

I drew all 360 flowers and applied glitter after cutting them. All the cards have different shaped swirls. I didn’t make a template because I like to draw them freehand. The sequins and glitter dots helps to fill in the empty space.

Here is the inside. We printed the text ourselves, applied silver glitter to give it a pretty look.

The tag that is hanging says; “It’s an anniversary invitation, come celebrate with Sofia & Naveed”. At the back of this tag she is going to write the name of the person that the invite will be delivered to.
Now I am off to cleanup the mess of sequins, glitter, organza threads and lots of glue threads from my room!
