Back again with more of last year's Mystery Box contents to show you! For February we had to make 4 cards, using our chosen paper pack (I chose Mocha Morning Specialty DSP) and the cards had to be for different occasions.
My first two cards were easel cards. For the next two cards I wanted to do at least one masculine card, and I also wanted to use the gorgeous clock stamp from the set Timeless Portrait.
Here's what I came up with :
This time the black embossing powder came out - don't you love that clock?!?
These projects were to be kind of special, so I didn't want to go for just a normal open & close card, which is why I chose the two easel cards to start with, and then this one is a quite simple tri-fold card.
It wasn't particularly masculine though - the scalloped borders saw to that, LOL! So my final card of the four had to steer away from frills and be more plain in design.
I really struggled to come up with something so in the end, I "cased" a card from Dianne Dunk which I really loved, using the tie stamp from the set Best Dad Ever. I added another layer to the background and switched the papers around, but I have used the same stamp set, colours and layout that Di used.
I forgot to take a photo of it, but the inside of the card has a Very Vanilla panel with an embossed greeting in the centre of it. Oh, and another thing I did for all these cards was make the envelopes match!
I guess you're beginning to wonder what the project was for the next month? Well, I'll be back to show you that soon too!
See you then!
