Challenge Card

Just popping in to show the card I made for the March Stack-a-holic challenge from DCWV.

I really like a good challenge to push myself further, cross boundaries and use new or old techniques so these monthly challenges are very welcomed 🙂

Usually these Stack-a-holic challenges have a sketch for you to follow – this is this month’s sketch:

I try to follow the sketch as much as possible but at the same time I like to think outside the box.

Here’s my entry:

SAH Kort Marts 201

The card base, one flag and the shaker box frame is made from AC Cardstock. The rest is patterned paper from the Preserved Papers Stack by DCWV.

I distressed the edges of all the panels and fussy cut the butterflies.

I added some glitter and gold music notes to the shaker and places a few resin roses and enamels dots here and there.

The rose leaves are from the Silhouette Design Store design ID #200492 by Alaa’ K and I cut them in green pearl paper.

I hope you like this card and I would really love if you would go here and cast you vote on my card simply by liking it. The prize is a new stack from DCWV and since the new ones aren’t available here in Denmark or Europe, I would really love to win one.

Thank you so much ❤ and remember to stay safe 🙂

Explosion of Impressions

Last month my Mom turned 70 and as you can guess I wanted to make something special for her.

What do you make for a 70-year-old that doesn’t take up space (as she recently moved to a small apartment) but is still something that she can remember getting on this special day?

I decided on the Hexagon Explosion Box from Simply Crafty SVGs:

First of I want to say, that if I have to go into details, this post is going to be waaaay to long, so I put a video at the end of the post so you can see all the goodies.

The box is made from AC Cardstock in Vanilla, Cranberry, Leaf, Kraft and Wave and decorated with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “Times Nouveau” Collection.

I decorated the lid with several Prima flowers, Vinyl, enamel dots and different trinkets from my stash.

Taking the lid of reveals the Explosion of Impressions:

All the layers are decorated inside and outside and the follow pictures show a bit of it:

I made some of the panels into small pockets for the tags to fit in and wrote some details about my Mom on them. I also used the Silhouette Sketch pens to draw parts of lacing patterns on the tags as it’s on of her favorite crafts.

On the pockets I also drew crafting motifs all found in the Silhouette Design Store.

On the largest layer, I added some quotes and saying that I found in the Silhouette Design Store – all about crafting. Well the box theme is crafting actually 😀

On the smallest layer I added small labels on which I wrote a greeting from me, my Sister and the rest of our families.

I put the present inside the box in the middle and decorated the lid with knitting needles and a piece of knit also from the Silhouette Design Store. I also decorated with more vinyl lacing pattern and some gems.
