I haven't much time over the last few days but now I am back again!
The weather is warming up in the afternoon and spring is on the way........now onto my today's card which is aiming for a very special person, I wanted to make a just big pocket to hold few chocolates in it and this is what I came up with!
I created a fill'er up pocket holder with shaker too :D, window design featuring Tilda and flowers and with an interesting front panel gate fold to hide the secret things in the holder!!!
For my card base I used pastel light green CS and decorated it with DCWV pattern papers. I hand stitched around the frame. I cut the window using Spellbinder nestabilities Frames and decorated it with pearls and rhinestones. The background paper which is popping from the window is made by using food colours and sprayed with mini spritzer:).
Now onto my front gate panel: I cut two pieces of light green CS and layered it with another bottle green CS. Then I used a vintage border stamp from WRMemory Keepers and heat embossed it with Wow golden glitter. I stamped the Magnolia Tilda image onto a white CS and coloured it with promarkers and added some shine to her hair and her clothes using Sakura glitter pens. Then I fussy cut it and pop her up on a die cut swirl on a left gate panel . And on the right panel I placed a peach coloured three layered flower which is handmade using Spellbinder Octagon nestabilities dies. I cut each and every slit of the octagon edges and again sprayed food colour on it. Then I applied gesso on it with diamond glitter dust to give it a shiny look.
This is how the right side looks like when the gate fold is opened :
I always try to do something new , so I used an old plastic box . I also went a little crazy with the empty space, I filled green beads and placed a piece of an acetate sheet on it to make it a shaker. On the other space I applied a sentiment sticker and hearts from OAK arts. I finished off my card with some embellishments -buttons, pearls, another handmade green coloured flower, Butterfly and a swirl.
And a peek at the inside view:
The inside is just waiting for me to write on!!
A long project but I really like the finished results!!! I hope you like it:)
