Card, Mini, and Altered Box

Good morning everyone. I know its been awhile since my last post but I am having issues trying to type up a post thru my google chrome. I guess I can not complain to much as I am finally able to post thru internet explorer. So today I have 3 projects to share with you. The first is a card and paperbag mini wallet I made for my mother in law. For The card and the mini I used the Authentique Cherish collection. This paper is absolutely gorgeous and has a lot of tags and cutouts for grandparents which made this paper perfect for this project.
Stamp: The Greeting Farm: Blush Babette
Roses: I am Roses
Sprays: Shimmerz
Pearls: Glass pearls from my stash
Butterflies and diecut circle: both came from a swap that I colored with Copics
Markers: Copics
Lace: Walmart
Ribbon roses: I peeled these off of a roll of sheer ribbon
Pearl Trim: Sa Crafters
Flatback Pearl hearts: Received in a swap
Butterfly: Recollections that I sprayed with some Shimmerz spritz
If you would like to see the inside of both these projects, I have a video that I will link below.
For my 3 project, I have altered a old pencil box style box for a dear friend of mine.

For this Box I used my all time favorite paper by Pion Design. I just love the soft romantic feel of this paper. The paper totally inspired me to make this beautiful heart with the pearls in the center. For the heart I started with a hallow chipboard heart from maya Road and covered the heart with the same paper as the box. I traced the heart with a piece of paper and glued it to the back of the heart and then added pearls to the center until I was happy with the look. I then filled the heart with glossy accents and added some to the top of the pearls which I love how it turned out. Kinda looks like the pearls were melting together in there and then topped it off with this beautiful key. I used a flourish die from cheery lynn designs and had colored the diecuts, I am roses Roses, Butterfly, and the metal corner pieces with a pearl watercolor paint that I purchased from amazon. I also added more of the beautiful glass pearls around the butterfly.
This is a view of the sides of the box. I added a beautiful metal piece that I added gesso on then went over with more of that beautiful watercolor to and added another I am roses small rose to the center of. The rose is also colored with the same watercolors. Then I added this beautiful flatback pearl trim from Sa Crafters. For the feet on the bottom of the box I used these beautiful flower bead caps and adhered them upside down. I really love how that turned out.
This is how the front of the box looks. I added a beautiful Prima resin piece that I had covered with gesso and again the watercolor paint on and some more of that beautiful Sa Crafters pearl trim.
Below is a link to the video of this box.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a beautifully blessed day.
