Anyway, here is today's card.
Love it! Actually I bought it for my dress, but I thought it will look better here! This usually happens, most of the stuff lands somewhere in card making instead of being used where it was meant to be.

I am very tired and busy drawing, cutting and embossing the flowers. I really don't have the energy to make other cards. This is the reason I am not posting any new cards apart from the cards that I make for Beary Box.

I used GLUE GUN to create this!
“Think it some kind of hot glue, poured on the paper, and tilted so that you get that effect..Then you poured some glitter on it... ;P”
I got this text from Daniel’s blog: “Hello, I am a 16 year old boy, from Norway. I consider my self a cardmaker just as much as a scrapbooker, and like both hobbies a lot. And that is what I’ll display here in my blog. I’ve just started my second year at High School, Media and Communication.”
Majority of you did guess glue so I didn’t want to leave you guys just like that. I thought I could make one extra card! So I copied the names of everyone who said glue and randomly picked out a number.
The other lucky person is Carol!

I know that you all can guess it right away. If there are more than one right answers I will choose the winner randomly. But as I don't have lots of visitors so there won't be a big problem! LOL. If you guys can help, do let others know about this guessing game.
The winner will get this card and one other surprise card (Unwritten/Blank of course!).

I made a pocket card! Yay! Not a first for me, but definitely a first using the two way tape technique. This one’s much easier, because the one I used to make was different than this. Say, like you make a box. It had little gap... some space so that the card could be pulled out easily. But I like this better. Less time consuming :o)
Alright, I wanted the front to have a tied up kind of look. This is why I used jute, gold dori, gold net, gold thread and gold beads.
Oh I forgot to tell! The gorgeous paper that I have used here was sent to me by Steph! (Hi Steph!) Remember the BIG BOX OF GOODIES? Aah she has sent me the most wonderful stuff! She truly has a heart of gold!
The flap inside the pocket is plain. I wanted to make two very tiny hearts and stick them either at the top-middle part or bottom-right. They would have looked so cute. But I am a lazy ass. LOL

I still cant see my blog. And it's not just my blog, I can't see any body's November posts. I can view them only if I select the "Newer Post" option. I'm sad and I hope it gets fine.
Anyways! I finally get to post the first Beary Box's sketch and the card that I made using the sketch. You can visit THIS link to check out what other DT members made!
Remember the green??? Yeah it is the SAME green, apparently it looks so much better here!
I love this card. Seriously LURVE it! I have no clue why, but I do! LOL
Please click on it and take a closer look!
The flowers are hand made. The middle part of the flowers is made using embossing paste and orange glitter.
I tried to make the stems look a bit twiggy. I did not want straight lines and certainly did not want swirls again!
Oh by the way, did you see the cute green string??? Awww it's so cute! I tied a bow and with the help of some adhesive stuck it right where all the stems were joining.
The scallop thingy is created using semi circles which were just perfectly shaped because they come out of this buckle punch that Steph sent me! (Thanks a MILLION Steph!)
The hand written sentiment is decorated with half cut sequins. I have outlined all the layers of the sentiment with markers of darker shade than the card stock.
Do you like the white outline on the pink and orange card stock? This is what made the card look so much better. Seriously!
All the sequins have been added just to make the card look a bit more nice to look at! :o)
What do you guys think?!?! :o)

Something’s wrong with me, lately I have been making cards that are totally different in my head and come out on paper looking the exact opposite! Do I need a break? No! Never! LOL I am answering my own questions today, weird. It’s just caffeine. Yes, I blame caffeine! LOL
Alrighty! You must have noticed the same gold holographic paper. It IS gorgeous you know. I made the flowers using the same paper. This time I glued the paper with card stock and then drew the flowers on the backside of the card stock. By doing this the flowers became a bit sturdy and cutting them out was easier.
