Dora's Birthday Wish

Hi there...hope you all had a great weekend! I recently have been working on this easel card (like a tabletop frame) for one of my friend's lovely little niece. Actually, it was for her niece's second belated birthday...and therefore my friend thought it would be nice to have her niece's name on the birthday card instead of any wishes. I was told that her niece loves Dora - role model of every little girls...

So, here I made this colorful flowery background card for the little girl...My idea was to make her feel happy by looking at the character Dora...standing in a garden and calling out her name to wish happy birthday! Since my friend insisted not to include any wishes on the card I simply placed two birthday candles inside the card. This card is one of my favorites :) It was easy to make one...simple and looks unique too. Another way of making this card is to include your favorite pictures or photos.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Little One!

Here's a lovely card to welcome a beautiful baby girl to the world! I truly enjoyed making this card for my dear friend. She has requested a warm welcome card for her newborn niece...Well, I have tried some new things here...
Front View - Personalized with baby's name
I picked ivory color for the card base, and layered Swiss dot card with another layer of adorable pink patterned card and formed the base design. The metallic pink scallop circle holds the message "Hello Little One" with coordinating handmade prima flowers. The bottom of the front design has the baby's name personalized using hand-stamped alphabet stamps.
Inside View - Handmade baby stroller
A handmade baby stroller has been used to decorate the inside of the card. Since I used the same set of cards to make the baby stroller...I decided to place it inside. The fun part was putting them together...and the challenging part was assembling the bits and pieces!
Hello little one...a closer look~
I love making my own embellishments...especially  flowers of all kinds, tiny objects such as the baby stroller on this card, the little car which I made for the father's day card and other quilling decorations. It was my very first try at making prima flowers using a simple embossing technique. I was pretty happy to see at the outcome as it feels so real to touch....and I can't wait to try out more of these using different colors and sizes of petals. Look for more on my upcoming posts.

Card for Daddy

Since it's getting close to Father's Day, I was time to start working on some Father's Day ideas...Hmm what kind of dad do you have?...Some dads are strict and disciplinarians...while others play more of a friend role, a hero or a role model! No matter what type of dads we have...we all love them! Of course, every one of us can proudly say..."My dad is the best in the world!"...Take a look at some of the father's day cards that I have made last week...
A simple card to show how much you love and care your dad...
I don't have any masculine stamps...but I was still able to come up with a "Love u Dad" message which I made using alphabet stamps. I love to use textured card compared to the design card as it looks more impressive and rich in quality. Hence, I used Swiss dot card as the base card for my alphabets.
Handmade car greeting card for your dad! You're my #1
For this card, I simply used the layering technique to form the base design. Then, I sketched a little car image on a navy cardstock and outlined it with a silver pen. Buttons are the best form of embellishment out there...using buttons add a dimension to any card here I used two black buttons as the car tires.

Cute little daddy's car...
On whole, it was fun to work with tiny and cute things. Check out the price of each card on the gallery section. A lot more on the way...
