Hello and a wonderful day.
Well… this is soooo weird :-) iam finally able to show my projects and cards on my personal space while iam working already on the submissions for Magnolia ink 4!!! hahaha :-)
First i had not really and idea what to make but than all of a sudden my ideas just came and as we all who make something for the magazine hope that Magnolia will like and publish it. We only find out if Magnolia is sending us a issue to look at it. Prior to that we do not know if we made the cut with our submissions.
So i hope that i can impress with my ideas and execution in the next round and you as readers will like it and most of it feel inspired what you can create with all the cute Magnolia stamps, papers and matching embellishments.
I had the idea to make this “Gatefold” kind of box and my hubby who is good with the computer made for me the template. If you hide your seam (opening) with a nice ribbon or lace you can not even see where the paper opens – you know even if you use sturdy cardstock it always seam to have some ugly gaps? Click on my photo by adding the ribbon the horizontal way – it does not show at all.
Here is how it opens and how it looks from the inside. Well.. Easter is over but it would be something that works for any occasion.
Since i had some time before the deadline for the magazine was, i quickly made a matching card to go with the box.
The card is only 5 x 5 which fits inside the box AND is the perfect size for the “Armor Tilda” with “envelope”.
All the layers of cardstock have been sprayed with Tattered Angles Pearl mist and of course i used Stickles.
