Happy Birthday - Folding Card

Hello Again dear Friends ,

I am here to share with you a folding card which I made for a team mate and friend's wife's Birthday. All he wanted was to surprise her with something handmade and personal - and this is what I made him.

 The card has 4 folds. The first and the last have space to hold personal messages and sentiments like "Happy Birthday" and "You Complete Me".

The inner side has space for 2 sentiments apt for the occasion.

The 2 folds in the middle have frames to hold pictures. They can be slid out and be changed as and when desired.

The folding card is held together with a satin ribbon. Somehow , I am too fond of ribbons and pearls :) They add such grace and softness to any craft!

And again , the customized box. I just don't let my dear husband rest in peace :)

~~ Thanks for visiting

Mini Album - Anniversary Special!

Hello Friends!

I got this request from a person who wanted to make his Marriage Anniversary special - with something handmade and personalized to detail. His requirements were minimal : A hand made something for my wife :)

This gave me ample space to exercise my choices . And hence I chose to make a mini album full with heartfelt sentiments and a few pics of the couple along with embellishments to go with them. Its a 5" by 5" book with 5 leafs in it. Every thing on it is hand made.

I used the technique of raising tags (3D) to give it a nice look. The stamps are digital and the quiet a few of the tags are made diligently by my husband who took good care of color, hues and shades. What would I do without him! :) He is a sweetheart to put up with all my demands of changing the shade to the tiniest level , up scaling and down scaling N number of times.

One of the tags has been left blank to write down the personal message. Have a look!
