HI friends my today's post is all about Recycling and as my heading suggest I have made Three recycled items that is a Box a Tag and a Purse from recycled  Wedding cards.oh and I think I better mention that this is a photo heavy post so beware:),so without further ado here's my pictures:
      Okay so these are the items I made recycling some old Wedding cards that I have had,each and everything that I have used is from these wedding cards Here's a pic of the wedding card I used to make the box:
  I used this card to make the small Ring box here's a pic of the finished box.:
     And  after Decorating the box looks like this:
      The Centre flower is a punched flower which has been Embossed and stuck in layers to give the 3d look The leaves are also punched from scraps of other wedding cards in my stash,The paper lace in the side is a MS border punch which too is punched from a wedding card The back side of it is printed but unfortunately I have not clicked any pic to show how I  did it.Ok the next item is a a Small Purse which can hold either Cash or a 5-8 Chocolates or any Small gift item .and here is the pic of the card and the template I used   from which I constructed this purse:
     And now the Pic of the Purse itself:
    And now the Back View say Hi to my Little finger's:)

A side view just to show how the Lacey Handle which is punched from a MS border punch looks like,and here I have to mention that the Flower center in the Side Flowers are Brads from Making Memories Company, These brads help in making the handle Moveable just like in an Real purse.  
  And now for the Tag which I made from the Remaining Scraps from the Box shown above
        And the Back of the Tag:
       And now the Pics of the Scraps from which the Flower ,Leaves and Butterflies are Punched.

Hi friends, today i am posting a card which i have made  for Erums challenge on Yvonne's blog  have a look first:

   i have cased one of Erum's card  and u can see it here  though the basic layout is same i have done some changes in the design ,as you all know it's a mighty difficult task to case anything of a master crafter like Erum but i have done my bit  and hope you all like my work.
                                 And now something about the card itself, i have used a paper mania DP as my background as i felt it could complement the shabby chic look i was trying to create,the flower was made using a 1 inch offwhite satin ribbon and followed Erums tutorial to a T ,but have to admit that the easy tutorial is made difficult to follow because i could not get the ribbon to stick on paper using an ordinary craft glue it made getting the pleated look difficult but i plodded ahead like a dilligent person and ended up with a flower i could be happy about somehow.
the sentiment is stamped on a tag by itsy bitsy and the butterfly is  from a inkadinkadoo clear stamp and colored using faber castell color pencils.Oh and i have added mock stiching on the side which u might have to strain to see:) that's about all .
         Thanks for stopping by and please do leave me some feed back as all comments are highly appreciated ,have a good day everyone.

HI friends how have you all been, it's been long since my last post and i am sorry to have been MIA for so long but now i am back again and this time want to show you a card which i was really very excited to have created.Have a look                     
      I made this card for this time's Cas-ual Friday challenge  where the theme is to make a card based on the colors red white and black and wait for this ....inspired by your favorite book or book cover ,when i read about it it was like a light bulb moment for me i just knew what i was going to make and it was a card   based on the novel THE KITE RUNNER by Khaled Hosseini   i don't know if any of you have read it or even for that matter have heard about it but trust me when i say this book is the best ever read,i really would recommend it very highly just loved this book.

     Ok this this the challenge logo ,and now for how i made the card i don't think it requires much explanation i first cut the silhoutte of the boy using an image which i got from my daughter 's art book and placed it on some dimension tape then cut the kite and made the banner the sentiment is a glitter sticker and i have added eyelets to the sentiment banner and distressed clouds with the help of an cloud cut out.
                 I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
1.  (black white and a splash of red
2. (inspired by a story book or cover)
3.   (anything goes)         
    I am also putting up the PDCC LOGOand here it is:
