I’ve been consolidating photos of cards that ended up on multiple computers and have come across lots and lots of cards that I’ve never posted.
One thing I can say about my card making style is that I like to make sets. And for me, a set is 5. No rhyme or reason here, it’s just some bizarre compulsion. I also have a thing for stamping the envelope flap to match the card.
With this set, I was definitely inspired. I made a small card (pretty sure it’s 5x3.5), a handmade envelope, a matching sticker to seal the envelope, and a pillow box. I used a deconstructed store bought pillow box as my template. This was way before the PTI die was released.
To cut out the tulip cameos, I’m pretty sure I used a Marvy scallop punch that coordinates with the images.
I did a bit of masking on several of the pillow boxes. It was easy because it was a straight edge on a small area. For the trim on several of the cards, I cut off the scallops of a square nestie die cut.
I used quite a few white brads but I broke of the two tines on the back. To say this was tedious is an understatement not to mention the difficulty I had gluing them onto the cards and boxes. I filled the backside of the brad with glue and carefully placed it on my project.
