I made a card the other day but was undecided about the recipient or sentiment... well, it came in perfect for my Cousin. She is godmother to both the boys so here is the card again, finished off.
Sentiments made on PC and cut with nesties labels. Distress inks - 'Black Soot and Antique Linen' used.
The spotty candle I did a few days ago was also for my Cousin - I went on to make a box for it, using only a ruler and scoring tool to make the template - i simply measured the height of the candle, then the diameter of the candle which became the width of each of the 4 sides of the box. On the fourth panel, after scoring, I left a flap on to glue inside the first panel when constructed - it was easier than it sounds.
Anyway, here is the result:
The DP which I used to cover the box with, is from the Pink Petticoat 'Just an Old Fashioned Girl'. I learned a lot from this project on how I would do it different to make it easier... i.e. I would decorate the box once constructed rather than decorate it while it was flat as, while I also scored the DP paper - it wasn't as easy to do it this way.
Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to read this post. Please come back again.
