It took me awhile to find how to make some hexagon boxes. The first one is a carousel box that Claire Napper did, she does a wonderful job with it. The second one is called a Circus Tent box. I love how it turned out to, reminds of the tents at the fair. My card uses a technique called Star/Sunburst. I took a 1 1/2" x 4 1/2 " and then cut from corner to corner, you should have at least 6, I made mine with a few more, I actually used all of the papers:) I then took a piece of 1 1/2 " x 5 1/2" to cover the bottom. Next I stamped the Carousel horse in Bermuda Bay, cut it out with a 2" circle die, punched holes in the top and bottom of the pole and added a cake pop stick. I then added two rhinestones to the saddle and two bows I made from the bakers twine from the embellishments. Lastly I stamped "I love when your Birthday comes around" in Basic Black and added a strand of 5 rhinestones and popped it up with dimensionals.
I had lots of fun with these!!
Day 6 Happy Birthday!
These are what I call 3-D cards. The first one is a surprise twist and fold card. It was actually easier than it looks to make. First I decorated the front with cutting three strips of DSP in different widths, layering on top of the DSP. Then I cut the ends and curled them and finally added the Ferris Wheel. On the inside I stamped the circus tents and the carousel horse on cardstock and alternated them with the DSP. The only thing I had not done was add the sentiment. Not sure who is going to get this yet.
On the next card it is a Shadow Box card. Here I stamped and cut out the Ferris Wheel, 2 Tents, the Carousel horse and a banner. If you look closely at the card you will see three layers plus the back. I used the rides for the back of the card, then added the Ferris Wheel to the next section, then the Circus Tents on the next section and then finally the Carousel horse. I stamped the filigree and then traced around the stamp to cut it out. Added Calypso Coral ribbon across the top with the two bows and some rhinestones. I stamped the Carousel horse onto watercolor paper with black memento ink. I then used Daffodil Delight for the mane & tassels, Whisper White for the horse, Calypso Coral for the saddle blanket, Melon Mambo for the saddle and Old Olive for the pole. I then colored over them with the Wink of Stella. The banner is stamped in Early Espresso.
These cards are fun to make, I really like the shadow box card most of all, on how to make this click on the link (Shadow Box) above.
It is much prettier than the picture shows.
I hope you have enjoyed this as much as I have had making them~
Thanks for stopping by!!
