Another gift for my secret bunny

I made this based on her favorite color combo Blue and Brown. A box of cards! I used paper I had on hand. The view from the front: And the side:

And opened:

I have to say that this box, while fun to make, it took a LOT of cards!! I think I stopped counting at 12 cards. I wish I could figure out how to make one similar, only smaller, without using so many cards! If nothing else she has quite a few cards to use! I added the "C" from "Lovely Letters Alphabet", for her first initial and heat embossed it using an iridescent embossing powder. I layered it on a 1 1/4", 1 3/8" and a scalloped circle punches. I used my trusty white Singo white gel pen to add dots, and added it to the box with Dimensionals. The ribbon was some that I had on hand. These were fun, now if only I could alter the template....I'd love to make these for Craft Fairs!

A gift for my secret Bunny

I participated in a secret bunny swap with my friend Crystal on Facebook. We sent in the answers to some questions she posted, and we were able to add some questions of our own. We answered the questions so that the person sending to us was able to get to know us better. My person had asked for hand made cards, which I was very happy about. She also said her favorite color combo was pink and brown, and blue and brown. I made to items for her, here is the first one. A card portfolio, with matching cards. The outside:
Opened up:

And the cards I included inside.

I used all Stampin Up! for these (except the ribbon used to hold the portfolio closed). I used Pretty in Pink and Soft Suede cardstock, whisper white 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Flight of the Butterfly stamp set, Full of Life stamp set (both are retiring May 30th!! Get them while you can!), All Holidays (retired), and the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder. I used the butterfly punch to punch out the butterflies, and added dimensionals to make them pop. There are also some Basic Pearls and Dazzling Diamonds to add some details. Oh and one thing I used on every card, was the Stamp-a-ma-jig. If you don't have one of these, trust me, you need it!!! These were a lot of fun to make, and they will be items I will be making for upcoming craft fairs!

PS it appears I lost 2 of the cards, so I will add them in another post. I don't know how to add it in here without it going in the begining of the post.

A gift for my secret bunny - part 2

These are the other two cards that got lost in my other post.
