I made total 130 of these and I never thought making 130 cards could be so tiring!
Ithink if I had punches for the flower and something to automatically cut the swirls that would have helped- A LOT. This is a small 5x5 circular hanging card with a 6x6 bag to go with.
I drew all 360 flowers and applied glitter after cutting them. All the cards have different shaped swirls. I didn’t make a template because I like to draw them freehand. The sequins and glitter dots helps to fill in the empty space.

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.

Actually, I had this gorgeous shimmery card stock which I really wanted to use with silver, and I did too but the card did not come out as expected. People here are liking it though. Anyway, it is an incomplete card, I have to gift it to someone so I left the lower pat of the card empty for her to put any sentiment that she wants.
At first I didn't add the silver layer, and it looked quite empty without it. After adding the silver layer I was much more pleased. There is always this little thing that a card needs and when you add it, it looks complete. This was one of those things.
Outlined the polka dots with embossing paste and then showered it with silver glitter. I am short on bling atm so I added silver sequins in the middle.
The doodling has been embossed using silver embossing paste and then sprinkled with glitter.

I doodled some swirls with a gold metallic pen on the top most off white layer (the smallest rectangle with a ribbon wrapped around). I made those little spring thingy and glued them under this layer to pop it up. After sticking the gold sequins I used dots of gold embossing paste to fill the gaps.
I popped up the the brown layer with the sentiment using the same spring thingies.
I wrapped around some gold string on the three off white layers. The middle one has some gold beads as well. I didn't add them in all three because it was taking a long time and I had to complete the card as quickly as I could. So instead of beads I added sequins to jazz it up some more.
Okay so I have officially used FIVE layers and one base layer making it SIX LAYERS! The gold layer is a wrapping paper and it is just GORGEOUS! I made the envelope using this paper!

Check out these balloons! LOL
The one at the top left, behind purple and green is way to oval!
The drawing was totally rough, I didn't do it neatly. My bad.
