Shhhhhh….Don’t tell Aaron! Global Design Project #023

Wow! a major milestone for him…..and my husband and I survived!

One down and 3 to go!

Now Aaron is an outdoor sort of boy, he’s been a Scout and now is a Leader, is a member of RFS- Rural Fire Service and is a diesel mechanic….

what great opportunity to make him a card.

I wanted to do something that had a masculine feel to it.

A CRATE…..with an EXPLOSION of BALLOONS coming out of it…

Had never done a Card in a Box before, this will be interesting!

I stamped my box and extra card stock with the Hardwood stamp and then cut it up to create the reinforced sides of the crate.

The balloons was stamped with Balloon Celebration and highlighted with Wink of Stella- Clear.

The large numbers cut from Glimmer Paper makes them pop out from amongst the balloons.

The Instructions for the box I used the You Tube clip by Tanya Bell.

Coming up to Valentines I thought I’d do a card using the Bloomin’ Love Stamp set,

but I wanted it to be a card you could give to a friend and that could be used at other times in the year.

I wanted this card to be soft and pretty….something “GIRLY”

I sponged the floral heart in Mint Macaron and Crisp Cantaloupe (deleted colour).

With a bit of Mint Macaron Lace wraped around the card and a butterfly cut from vellum, with a row of pearls and a touch of gold thread

finishes it of as a beautiful card to give to that special friend on any occasion.

Slider Card with a Hidden Gift

Patrick my son was invited to a friends Birthday party and he want to give his friend cash as a gift.

So I decided to make it some fun and make a Slider Card that when you pulled the money popped out on the other side.

Have never made one before..the first one I made failed…BIG TIME!

But the second attempt worked wonderfully.
