Magnolia Card/Box....

Hello,

I hope you are all well and had a wonderful weekend. I had the best Sunday with my family those grandbabies are growing so fast now. I will take more pics to show you. This is a box card that I made with the class I took at Crafts U Love. Thank you so much Tracy and Caz for looking after us all and a big thank you to all the lovely ladies who came you are just the best!


We made this card box.  I got the inspiration to make this and followed the instructions from the incredibly talented Kirsten. Thank you so much for sharing this Kirsten I so loved making this and want to make more now. The card on the top of the box is secured with tulle. I have coloured my Magnolia image with distress inks and star dust stickle glue is added all around. The top and bottom of the box is two 6x6 zutter chipboards. These are covered with paper and the edges have been crackle painted with tattered rose and then glimmer misted with iridescent gold. I have crackle painted the inside of the boxes too.


Here is a close up of the front of the card. I have distressed the paper and flowers with vintage photo. The small flowers are punched. The letters and leaves are quickutz.

I have received this award from the amazingly talented Hanne.


Thank you so much Hanne I am so thrilled to receive this from you.



Well, thank you so very much for looking and I wish you a lovely day. I am hopefully off to buy the new distress ink pads can't wait to get colouring with them!

Dear Kim
I have just been in to craftsulove and your box/card is even more beautiful in real life. I HAD made a pact with myself that I was not going to buy any more paper, untill I had used up some of my stash, but then I saw your box/card, (and as I am making a box with drawer's for my grandaughter) I had to have some like your's lol.
Hugs
Sandra
