Guest Designer - Neha Upreti

Good morning friends!

Kripa here, with our special guest for this challenge - Neha Upreti from the blog Creative Crafting. This is her second Guest post with us and we are so happy to have her back to showcase another beautiful project.
Thanks to Karuna and Lulupu Team for this honor. This time I played along Lulupu challenge- Gift Set for Festivals and made a book Box card with a matching tag. I hope you will like it and do stop by my blog to leave some love (
 Here is my card
This colour combination was given by a customer of mine. For the first time I have not used any flowers in my project as this is a masculine birthday card. I started with making the book part first. For that I scored the longest part of four CS (5 ½”× 11” and 4”× 11”) at ½” interval. Followed by, folding each CS in mountain and valley folds. Placed glue in the folds on one end of 5 ½”× 11” pieces of CS and joined 4”× 11” piece to it. Repeated the above steps, with remaining last 2 pieces of cardstock until edges of book is formed.  Put to a side to let the glue dry completely.Scored another CS (6.75” x 12”) at 5”, left 2” and then again scored at 5”to form the cover of the book.  Thereafter I used different pattern papers over the cover part and also glued a ribbon beneath them to tie up the box.
 Glued the book part to the cover and then embellished the card with die cuts, gears, stamped and embossed clocks, wood veneers, precious pearls and charms (small clock and key). The clock die cut was inked with distress inks and then embossed with clear embossing powder. Also added shabby embossing enamel over it and then finally added liquid pearls- gold.
I have also made a matching tag with leftover pattern paper. Sentiment is heat embossed using golden Embossing powder and then added it to tag using foam dots. Added some gear diecuts, doily lace and wood veneer heart (colored using distress inks and then added glossy accents). That’s it!!! I hope u like it!!!
So many wonderful details and textures isn't it.
There is still time to link  your Gift Set and we have one final project reveal left, so drop by the blog over the next couple of days.
