Toot - Toot ...

Today I wanted to share my first ever 3D box card and the new kit just released from 

Couldn't wait to use it and in fact purchased the stamp especially to make this card!
It is hard to make cards for the men in our lives and this kit has plenty of gorgeous papers
and elements to work with and I just fell in love with the 'tie bunting', now why didn't I think of that!

And a picture of the back, folds flat for posting.

The card template is from the Silhouette online store from the fabulous Lori Whitlock which 
I have adapted to suit my stamp.  Hand stitched, some gems, ribbon, charm, puff paint, 
buttons & screw brads.
Definitely loving this style of card, so effective don't you think?

I would like to enter this into the following challenges -
Crafty Catz - Boys (I Won Top 3)!
Graph It - Male Colours  (I Won Top 3)!

Have a great day crafters, love

I have used heart die, tag die, papers, butterfly, buttons, flowers, blackberries,
bells, ribbon and sentiment tags which I have since, well along time so no link sorry.
Hand stitched, a little distressing and some Gesso too!
Couldn't resist putting a teeny tiny heart gem to finish.

Surprise ...

Thoroughly enjoyed making this box frame from start to finish and it totally worked out how I planned.
I have made this for the midway reminder for A Little Bit Crafty 
and our challenge this month is titled 'Are we there yet'?

I have made the box frame on my Silhouette, distressed with Gesso
and then stamped some postage marks onto it.  Made some extra flaps and then ribbled.
Stenciled the 'this way up', added some bunting & bells.
Some white washi tape, twine, buttons, paperclip, decoupaged image along with
some glossy accents for the windscreen. I could not find any tiny
colouring pencils, you know the party bag filler type so I dug out my quilling
tools and made them, I love them.
I totally love my dice too, what do you think?

Anyways enough of my showing off, I hope I have inspired you to play along with us
for a chance to win some fabulous prizes from
