to do to do to do........boxed cards

i hope everyone had a lovely mothers day,

two cards today along the same lines just slightly different styles,

On Saturday while is was getting ready for the craft fair packaging, pricing etc i got distracted and starting  playing again with the air dry clay as you do, my husband thought this highly amusing as he knows i would rather be crafting then doing boring stuff like being organised, we have all been there!!!
so i made a few more embellishments for cards, but in paler colours using my air dry clay.
then after a few hours of playing, i decided  i had to sort out one of the craft draws as it was a bit of a mess, again as i was doing that and i got distracted yet again,
i had found some acetate domes which then got my mind off tiding the draw and on to crafting again.
i hadn't used these for years so i was sitting there deciding now what to do with them.
the husband by this time had given up on the idea that i was tidying my room out and just went off and watched football.


I then thought  wow i know i havent made a boxed card for years ill do a few for the craft fair.

so off i went in to the crafty world i live in and started playing

and these are what i come up with. 

 loved the colours on this, very springtime and a great Easter card ,
 as you can see i have used the dome to protect my air dry clay embellishments
you dont always have to put a happy birthday or a best wishes sentiment on a card some times just a simple word makes the card.


 this is the box i made for the pale yellow card


 again using my air dry clay i have made a rather exotic bird using brown and red marbled together rather then fully mixing them
 not sure whether your seeing the true colour on these photos but this was a pale blue and black card
with these embellishments i glazed them after they had dried then sprinkle a bit of glitter over them, in all my flowers i have added a diamond gem to the centre as it wouldnt be a card without a bit of bling
 as this picture shows its the box to match the card.
same colours

if anyone would like to know the contents of what i have used please ask, and i will gladly tell you, if you would like to know about how to make the boxes again ask and i will tell you. they are so easy to make i think both boxes took me less then ten minutes to make up in total. and all you need for each box is 2 a4 pieces of card.

hope you like the cards and that i have inspired you to try them out . Im glad i came across my domes as i think they not only make the card a bit more dimensional but add a touch of class too, and yes i even used my spellbinders again  woop woop!!!

please feel free to leave a comment i would love to hear what you think, and any question please feel free to ask.

thanks again see you soon
