A card in a box, without coloured image:)

I can't believe I have spent all afternoon trying to create this post in Blogger & it just wasn't cooperating #¤%¤#!! But..I hope it's okey now, and that nothing disappears from my blog again!!:) 
Todays card is a "Wedding Card in a box" I made for the challenge over at Wild Orchid Challenge!:)
The challenge was to create an Embossed background/layers,...and as I will need a wedding card later ithis week, I used that as my starting point.;)
I warn you, there are many pictures in this post, but there are many parts on this card though;)
The box,  background of the card/box, and all the other white panels are all white Bazill, which has been  Embossed with Tim Holtz, and QK's embossing folder..

...And a bit closer view of the beautiful flowers, embossed heart/ sentiment, charms and some of the pearls♥ .
I love the look of dry embossing:)

 From the top of the box:).
The sentiments and the silver heart is first stamped on white Bazill, and then embossed with Bridal Embossing Powder, and that matched this card/box perfectly!:))
The edges are punched with different M.S "around the edges" punches:)

 I have added a beautiful white lace, from Wild Orchis Craft, around the lock!
And ..I added different size of  foam dots between all of the layers, to make it look a little less flat:)

The hole set:)
And..inside the white box..there is a white weddingcard:) All the panels are build up in the same way as the box, with foam dot's.

 The fronside of the card, with another embossed silverheart:)
This card, and box, are full with beautiful small details♥

 Inside the card, with sentiments from Stempelglede, and a loooot of punched and embossed paper:)))
The beautiful butterflies is punched with M.S and Punch Bunc butterfly punch's..(..woos..that was a lot of punched-words, hihi;D) I put a tag into a "little pocket", made of an Spellbinders tag, for a place to wright personal greeting...and that will be needed♥!
Also here are all the panels and die-cut hearts set on foam pads, to get 3d effect!

 ..and the botton of the box,..with a stamped sentiments, which is a Bible verse about LOVE! All the sentiments is stamped with Weathered Wood ink.



Under the box... I have used some roundel's (what's the english name;D?) , as the feet of the box!
The paper doilies is from WOC!:)



And..inside again, with sentiments from Stempelglede "Take care of eachother", and another sentiments Love of a Lifetime"  ( I dont know where it's from).

Then they live happily ever after♥!!:)

Size: Box 16 x 16 cm
Recipe: Card in a box 
Stamps: Stempelglede-Heart's and sentiments

So..this was it!:)
Saturday is the weddingparty, and I hope the couple will like the "box-card"!:)
Thank you sooooo much for stopping by, it means a lot to me, as I hope you all know!
Take good care♥
Hugs to you all!:)

Årene går, barna blir store, og barnebarn beriker våre liv, men ..vi er like unge, hihi ..I hvertfall i hodet, selv om kroppen går på reserve noen ganger!!:)))

For my card I've used theFor this card I used "Steampunk Lil Eric", from TPS;), and the rough papers are from Bo Bunny:), and I Love them:)
The image is colorued with Copic's.
The card is a somewhat "masculine" young gentleman, so I hope this card is suitable as a birthday card to him.:))
. He's my grandson, and almost 20 years old...puuhh..in July!!:)
The years pass,  our children grow , and become adults! And then grandchildren enriches our lives, but we ...we are still young, hihi .. At least in my/our head, even though the body goes on spare sometimes !!:)))

Det meste som er brukt på dette kortet er fra Tim H. produkter.
Det ble nok et "Tag in a Pocket card", og det flotte med denne teknikken, er at det blir så god plass til å skrive noen personlig ord på!:)
****
I've used a lot of Tim.H. products  on this card.!
I made another "Tag in aPocket card", and the great thing about this technique is that it gets so plenty of room to write some personal word on it:)

Sweet sweet "Littlle Daisy"

  Hi everyone!:) Hope you all are doing great! 
Today I want to share one card, with a beautiful image, and it's the first time I've made a card with her, but I promise..it's not the last!!:) My camera was'nt working so good today, so I have only a couple of pictures of this card, but I have finished it all..and the inside have the same laout as the frontside:)

For this card I used "Little Daisy" by Karen Middleton at Sweet Pea Stamps.  You can purchase her as a single or on Sheet #3 Plate #114.
Isn't she beautiful?:) She looks like a "happy summer-girl":)
 

I have colored her with my Prisma Premier Pencils, and the lovely paper is from Magnolia (the one with roses), and the other one is from Maja Design.
I have been using my M.S flourish punch around all the edges, and I LOVE the effect it gives!!:)
I love fairies, flowers and butterflies..so this image is one of my favorite!! Perfect for young girl, and for those who isn't a teenage anymore...like myselfs!:))

Wish you all a beautiful day, and take good care!!

Tøff og Kul fotball-gutt!!!:))

I dag har jeg laget et skikkelig "fotball-gutt" kort!!:) Dette herlige motivet er fra en plate (#122) av Karen Middleton, og alle de 4 motivene er om sport. Flott alternativ til guttekort, som jeg sliter med å finne noen okei motiver til;).
Husker ikke hva papirene heter, men det første er med fotball mønster, og det andre hadde noen flotte utklipp, bla. de jeg har satt på her. 


Motivet er farglagt med Prisma Premier Pencil og litt Copic:). Husene, fra Tim H., ballen og fotball spilleren er festet på 3d puter:) Caps'en, fra Ebay, er lagt på "sidelinjen" til kampen er ferdig;)
 MÅL..Hurra!!!:)) 

Et staffelikort ja!:)) "Tøff og Kul Gutt" fra Stempelglede. Alle kanter er sydd med symaskin!
Kan se litt av tag'en, som er under stempelteksten, og der har jeg stemplet med noen tøffe stempler fra Tim H.

Han er såå skjønn, og skulle du få lyst til å ha han hjemme hos deg, så finner du han HER på plate 122:)

Med dette gla'kortet, så ønsker jeg dere alle en KJEMPEkoselig og deilig 17 mai!! Vi håper på bra vær, og det tror jeg det blir!!:))
HUURRA for NORGE!:)
Tusen takk for alle koselige kommentarer og besøk!:)
