Wedding Card Project

These first five pictures of the box card are my latest update. The card's finally decorated with embellishments made from cut outs. This is one of the sides....
The top...
I personalized the card by putting pictures of the bride and groom...
and stick messages in the layered panels...
A great card project to make and greater still, a pleasure to give to an endearing couple as a wedding gift.
I'm taking my sweet time decorating this Wedding Card Box. The wedding cake and bride's bouquet are embellished and colored.
Lots more to be done with all three layers of the exploding box.

will update later....

Exploding Box Card

This is a wonderful card project to make with Crafters Companion Score Boards.
I make and cut out embellishments to decorate the box card.
When the box lid is lifted up, it opens up to layers of decorated panel. This card is exploding with love messages.
This is the most important love definition from the Bible that has been a guideline in my life in all relationships.

Jump Up Card

I've just got myself a set of awesome craft tools which I would recommend to card makers. I made this Jump Up card with the help of the Top Score Multiboard. You can check it out at under Score Boards or Projects and How To Videos.
This is my very first try out with Top Score Multiboard and I'm sure going to make a lot of other cards with it.

This card was an accidental creation. Let me explain, I caught sight of an old used shopping paper bag and was inspired from it to make this card. The cut out girl figure is from the recycled paper bag. Think green, go environmental friendly, even the pictures on the paper bags can be recycled! LOL... I cut out a circle out of a white paper cardstock for the moon, stamped white swirls for background on a red card, punched and colored the orange flowers and plucked a pink sakura from our house decoration and found some Chinese words to go with the card. The Chinese characters are from Jeart die - 1990002 Hui Yi Si Nian.
"Memories" - it brings back fond memories of the good old days when every year, during Mooncake Festival my parents would invite dear grandpa and grandma over for dinner and after that we would sit and chat under the bright moonlit sky and enjoy the mooncakes and biscuits made just for the festival.

How kind and sweet of you

I was trying my hands on waterfall card from an instruction but didn't quite get it.
So I ended up creating my own and ended up a card with a new design.

Heart that Loves....

This adorable toddler template which I got from a book is irresistible. It can be used to make children birthday and baby cards.

For this card, it's an inspirational card with a Greek proverb that says "The heart that loves is always young."

Stay loving, stay young.

My Never Again List

Let's see, I haven't made a single card in days although I wanted to but just couldn't get down to it. So I just went on with daily chores, watch t.v. a little and nap a lot. My eldest son said this creative-mood-on-hold is called "artist block". That's what happened to me. Sometimes I get the so called artist block for months! L O L ..... Now that I'm back to being creative again I have thought of a personal card with biblical messages that speak to my spiritual soul. Now that's totally uplifting!
I colored and cut out the girl figure, craft punched heart shapes and created roses out of them, stamped wordings and rolled out the heart frame with Jeart 1700027 Heart Shape#2 and tied some beads to the silver string to secure the inside piece of paper to the card.

The card opens up to my Never Again list.

For God so loved me - and the world- that He gave His one and only begotten Son, Jesus Christ to help me live life purposefully and abundantly now and for eternity. Jesus Christ says in Revelation 3:30 "Look! Here I stand at the door and knock. If you hear me calling and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal as friends."

I opened my heart to let Jesus in to live with me and since then life has a whole new meaning in which I understand why God has put me here on earth for His purpose. It's not about me but God and His glory. I'm just so glad that when I follow Jesus Christ, I know the way to live, the truth to believe and a great life to live.

Rest N's your special day!

A cheery inspirational gate-fold card. The fences are stamped and colored. Frames are made with Square cut outs. I used the same body part template for the girl-on-the-chair. The messages are all stamped with clear stamps.

Untie the ribbon to open up to ....

uplifting inspirational messages....

Go on, make it- today - your special day. Sit back and enjoy your day in the presence of our awesome, gracious, loving Creator - God. Hear His Word and instructions on living. Life is short here on earth but God offers us a gift of eternal life in Christ Jesus who wants us to live life to the fullest and with great purposes. Thanks be to God in the Highest!
