Happy New Year everyone!!!
It has been a busy week this. First, we had this small New Year's eve party at home. We had called Vineet's friends... I did quite a bit of cooking and everyone else got something along too... a kind of mini potluck. We had good fun. I had made cards for all the couples. Couldn't click pictures... it slipped out of my mind.
And then, yesterday was Aaryan's birthday. No party this time. Aaryan and I went out to the mall in the afternoon and spend a good 2 hours playing games he loved. Mamma and Papa aover in the evening. Then we all went to have 'pizzaaaaa' at Pizza Hut. Well, 'pizza' is Aaryan's latest craze - a little because he likes it and more because he can say the word ;-). Anyway, my little one is very happy with all the gifts he received. So, I guess it was a wonderful day for him as well.
And today, I made this card for Richa. I was going to post it later but I tried embellishing it keeping in mind Laura's sketch 16 at 2S4U. And this is what I came up with - a little explosion box card. I saw this on one of the blogs I visited (Popsicle Toes) and then used a mixture of a few tutorials and some of my own twists. It has not come out perfect but I am happy. One of my New Year resolutions is to learn a new technique/idea every month and make a card out of it. This looks like a good beginning, doesn't it? :-) With an absolute lack of tools here, I think it is good enough.
About the card:
The patterned papers used here (yes! I finally managed to lay my hands on some) are 'Candy Stripes' and 'Lavender Sky' both by Finmark Decoupage; The paper for the outer box is again from a metallic sheets pad that I got from A C Moore. I used some stamps for the inner box; they are all from Hobby Ideas. Miscellaneous buttons and lace.
Hope you like my attempt at making a little explosion.
Sorry the pictures are a little haphazard!!
