Art Deco 60th Birthday Card, envelobox and Gift Box

Hi all here's my creation from last week. It was my Mam's 60th Birthday on friday so wanted to make something special for her. She loves the Debbi Moore art deco cd's so I decided to use the Art Deco Galaxy CD Rom which is in collaboration with the Glitter Girls. I love the way this set has worked out.

The card stands open and all panels are displayed. I have used A4 pearl card and created 2 pieces with tri folds I mounted another piece of card to the centre section to mount these together. My Mam's birth stone is Garnet and her deco in her room is Burgandy so I chose the burgandy colour scheme for her card.

I have made each end panel section symetrical. The chocolate box ribbon detail I found a tutorial on Facebook on the I'm a Crafter's Companion Group by (Will add name later as using my mobile broadband and facebook wont load). I just love this detail. I decided to add a buckle slider to give a sparkle effect.

For the center panel I have embossed a frame using the Galaxy board by the Glitter Girls and have added peel off details. Onto this I have matted one of the images from the cd with foam pads. I have added a peel of greeting to this.

I have altered a couple of chipboard numbers by spraying with stick and spray and adding glitter, I then sprayed this with spray and shine to seal the glitter. I mounted these onto the card with some pinflare glue gel.

This is the envelobox I created to match the card.

A close up of the flowers which I have sprayed with Gold Spray and Sparkle.

This was a purfume set I got from my husband for Christmas and thought it would be ideal to alter the box to gift wrap my Mam's Kindle I got for her present. I coloured the silver edges with my spectrum noir pens (If you look you will see I had already started and then remembered I hadn't taken the photo).

I added the same papers mounted onto gold mirror card. The corners and centre embossing has been done again on the Galaxy board and have mounted some pyrimage onto this.

Again I added a chocolate box ribbon to the side.

I added a couple of feathers and some flowers to finish of the box along with a spritz of gold spray and sparkle.

My mam was over the moon with her card and has been showing everyone it. She loved her Kindle too.

Thanks for stopping by hugs
