Vintage Style Love Card by GDT Vinita Jain

Hello Everyone!

Another month has started so another fun inspiration creation for the challenge!

This time, I tried a new concept for me, made a vintage style Love card with my own handmade flowers. My base is a textured white CS.

I added lots of layers of old textbook papers and adhered them on a distressed white piece. Distressed them with hickory smoke ink and applied fossilized amber Distress paint in the centre. Now added some white linen ink spray splatters too and applied some of the gesso at the edges! Die cut some rose flowers, distress and shape them. 


After that, I die cut some Hearts out of textured and vellum sheets. Die cut some clustered leaves, distress them too. Added lace trims and finally decorated my card using lots of flowers with some Thank phrase and few green transparent dew drops and lots of splatters!


Here is the inside view:  You can add a personal message too!

Quad Easel Card by DT Priyanka

Hello Everyone

Today I am at the Blog again with an inspiration post this time.

This time I really wanted to try my hands at something new & different and something which I had never created before, thus I picked "QUAD-EASEL CARD" for my inspiration. I remember, when I saw this style of card for the very first time sometime back I got all itchy to try it but just couldn't work on it & with this inspiration post I knew I had to had to try my hands at this quad easel style.

This style gives you a lot of flexibility to experiment with themes, combinations etc. I chose to go ahead with the love theme...!

For the base, I began with taking a black cardstock in size 11"*11"{ref: Picture(a)} & than cut out 4 strips in size 5"*10" and then folded them into half (scored at 5")  {ref: Picture (b)} I further scored one side of the folded cards diagonally {ref: Picture(c)}. Then I cut out 4 squares in the size 5"*5" {ref: Picture(d)}. I then took patterned papers from Papericious & cut them accordingly to attach to the base of my easel card. For the base I cut the patterned paper into 10.5"*10.5" & the remaining 4 patterned papers in 4.8"*4.8".

I adhered the patterned papers onto the black cardstocks' of the respective sizes & then adhered the 4 cards onto the base {ref: Picture(e)} Our base is now ready to be embellished.

I embellished it flap by flap in a way that each flap coorinates with the other. (tip: it is important to think through how you are going to embellish the flaps because devaiting from the theme can kill the entire look of the card, thus it is very important that all flaps should compliment each other & be in sync)

I embellished my flaps using Spellbinders Nestabilities Fleur De Lis Square die, resins, die cuts, flowers, heat embossed sentiment from Fiskars stamp set, pearls, rhinestones. I didn't want to go overboard with my embellishments thus I kept them simple & light.

Using a double sided foam tape I adhered the small sentiments on the inside of the cards to make an easel panel (with support of these our cards will stand to make an easel structure)

Our Quad Easel Card is ready!

Pop-Up Box Card Tutorial by DT Priyanka

Hello Everyone,

Today I am over again at the Rainbow Craftykari Blog and this time I am here with a step by step tutorial on how to make a Pop-Up Box.
I have been doing a lot of pop-up boxes in the last few months and I have always loved working on these..! Pop Up boxes are a flat card that opens up to a box with popping out elements.

To give you a glimpse of the project:

Let's begin: 

Step1 for the base: I picked up a 10.5*6" cardstock & scored it at 2.5",5",7.5",10". Then I rotated the cardstock & scored at 2.5" which makes my upper part of the card (2.5") and bottom half (3.5").The last flap left in the end will be glued to the inner side to make the box. Following which I cut the scored lines half way through till 2.5" from the top to make the flaps.

Step2: I then cut two strips measuring 3.5*1" and scored them at 0.5" and 3". These go inside the pop-up box to hold the embellishments in the center.

Step3: Now I picked out the patterned papers from my stash and cut them in the sizes same as each section on inside & outside and adhere them to the box.

Step 4:
Then I took Clearly Besotted stamp & stamped the gorgeous little animals & sentiments and colored them using aqua water color pencils & fussy cut them.

Now using the acetate sheets (easily available in the local stationary shops) I cut these into thin strips.

These are used to add the elements outside of the box which gives an impression as if the elements are hanging in the air because of the transparency of these acetate sheets.

And the final step I added all the fussy cut elements onto the pop-up box and on the acetate sheets using glossy accents.


And TADA!!!! the box is ready... :D :D

Isn't it looking very cute???
Enjoy a few more close up pictures.


Materials Used: 1. Black Card stock 2. Clearly Besotted Stamp set 3. Versa ink onyx3. Patterned Papers ( from the stash) 4. Tim Holtz Distress inks 
5. Aqua Watercolour pencils
6. Glossy Accent7. Fevicol 
8. Acetate Sheet

Hope you all liked the card & enjoyed the tutorial. Until next time. ;)

DIY Gifts for a friend by DT Ishani

Hello Everyone,

Today I am here on the blog with my first post in this new term. My post is an inspiration for our August challenge, which you can find here.

August is the month for celebrating friendship and so I planned to put some love and make something for my best friend.

To tell her how I cherish our sweet friendship, I decided to make a card for her and a pair of quilled earrings.

I chose to do some hand lettering for the quote on friendship, as the sentiment for the card. For the design, I chose to build a wreath, around the quote. A wreath is circular and symbolic of eternity and I wish our friendship also lasts forever." The quilling done here is not very traditional, I thought of experimenting with different coils and was happy with the texture it gave to the flowers. After arranging my quilled elements for the wreath, it was stuck on a black card base.

I made a pair of quilled quirky earrings for her. The shape here is also a circle, symbolising our everlasting friendship. I chose the violet, indigo, blue and minty green 3mm strips to make this pair.

Hope you were inspired and would join us in our ongoing challenge.

Supplies used:

(a) For the quilled card:-

  • Neenah Classic Crest White cardstock
  • Black cardstock
  • Pentel brush pen (black)
  • 3mm Quilling strips (assorted colours)

(b) For the earrings:-

  • 3mm Quilling strips (assorted colours)
  • Ear hook findings
  • Mod podge matte (as sealant)

All the supplies used are available at Rainbow Craftykari Store or you can pre-order the products by sending email at

Happy Crafting
