I know I have these terribly long intervals between two posts these days. I have been a little busy with other things. Aaryan had not been keeping too well over the weekend, and though I was able to craft, I hardly had the time to take pictures and put them up.
Coming back to the cards. Two cards are for the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge hosted by Sankari and Brooke. I have been meaning to participate in their challenges since long but somehow haven't been able to. And this week, the challenge is not so difficult and I could have done a better job than what I have done... :-( I am a little upset. This week's theme was the movie, Bride & Prejudice. I have seen the movie... and the Indian element should have made it very easy for me to create a nice card. I am also a lover of bling and have loads of it in different formats in my stash (ribbons, laces, rhinestones, paints... everything....) but all I could come up with was these two.
The blue card (with the cake on it) is for my DH. It is his birthday on Monday and I made this one to match with the gift... he he... I am not revealing that as yet.. I am sure he will peek in here to see what I have been writing ;-).
Cardstock: Silver CS from the DCWV metallic stack, blue handmade paper, parchment paper
Rub-ons: From Hobby Ideas
Other: Ribbon and bling from local craft stores; 3D outliner from Fevicryl (used to fill in the hearts)
Our friends are celebrating their 2nd wedding anniversary tomorrow. This card is for them. I am also hoping this qualifies for the 2S4U challenge- Kazan Sketch # 21.
Cardstock: Gold and copper CS from the DCWV metallic stack; red and yellow textured handmade paper
Others: Lace and eyelets, rub-ons from Hobby Ideas
And a sneak peek into another card for Vineet. This is my favorite... I loved how it has turned out and have made a matching post-it note holder for him. Hope he will like it. I love the brown leather textured paper from the Paper Company (yeah, I am going international ;-) ). I found the tutorial online and now I have forgotten where.... I will post the link as soon as I remember. I have written a poem inside that I found to be one of the most romantic ones I have read... It begins with 'Lay thy hand in mine, dear...' . Try to read it online if you can... I will post the entire poem after the 9th. :-)
