BABY - A little piece of heaven
My paper crafting aspiration this year is to try new techniques and styles. When I went through my box of projects, most were mixed media, so for this post, I've tried my hand at a traditional card which involves loads of measurements, both unfamiliar to me.
This what my project looks like.
The pink mat is a magnetic photo mat and can be fixed onto the base paper (music paper) both vertically and horizontally to accommodate any photo layout. This easel drawer photo display would make a perfect gift to new parents, or grandparents to show off adorable new baby wallet size photographs.
The drawer measures 6x6 and has room to accommodate loads of photographs and even a gift. This is the view from the top, with the display lying flat on the box. Because the box was made to a specific dimension, there was a lot of measuring required. The drawer, and base of the card are white medium weight chipboard. The Tim Holtz ruler is perfect for precise measurement and Art Knife by WRMK made cutting chipboard easy.
The pattern papers, die cuts, drawer pull and flowers are all Kaisercraft Pitter Patter collection. The banner was cut from left over scraps and the WRMK crop-a-dile punched tiny circular holes just enough to thread a twine.
All the different layers have been popped up using foam tape. Apart from paper flowers, tucked in between the layers is a resin flower . Ive also embossed a stitch stamp around the border of the card.
That's it from me today. I hope you al feel encouraged to try something that not your usual style. You can link your baby theme creations here.
Until next time,
