Family Baby Shower

Tomorrow I have a baby shower to go to. Now that I'm really into alternative paper crafting, and really getting away from scrapbooking and boring cards, I want to make all my gifts and do all kinds of cool stuff to my cards!

So, for this gift, which this is for a cousin who could probably care less about this stuff, I made a cute box called the "2-5-7-10 box", which you can find the directions and all the juicy details at splitcoast. I saw quite a few of these and had to try it! So, this is my first box. It turned out better than I anticipated! I put some of Jack's Halloween candy in there!!! What a great way to give away candy! Give it to a pregnant woman!!!! LOL!!!! But, I just thought this was so cute! And the stamp of this pregnant woman really has a book in her hand. Well, why not tie the gift inside to the outside! So, I had some embellishments from my Halloween cards that I didn't get a chance to use, so the candy bar came in handy!

The last card is called a "Magic Card". This was SO hard to make! This is obviously something that will have to be practiced time and time again. Maybe once I'm good at it, this can be a Michael's class. It took me ALL NIGHT to make this! Well, all evening, anyway. It's a really cool idea, and I love the finished product, but JEEZ!!!!!!! I felt like this card would never be finished! There are more than 20 directions to make this sucker! And mine isn't even that good! But it does look better in real life than online! Although, after looking at some actual Stampin' Up Demonstrators' "magic cards" on Splitcoast, I do have to say that mine is nicer than some of theirs! Good God! That's for another post though! But let me just say that there are some really awesome card makers out there, and then there are some that should just not share their work!
Anyway, so, this card is NOT my best work but it's 11:30 and I'm sick of sitting in this chair!

Off to my romance novel!

Happy Stamping!!!!
