Sam's retirement card

R001

Mr. Shamsulkamar (the happy guy with the yellow shirt) holding the card in his hands with his beloved colleagues :)

Here he is again with the card opened, showing off the inside of the card....with all the signatures and wishes he got from his colleagues... :)

I got a special request from my aunt to make a retirement card for her colleague who is retiring soon. I haven't use a lot of purple color cards in my handmade card designs so for this particular request I decided to use it! I got a tip from my aunt that Sam love flowers, so I added some in it, not too much that it would look so feminine...hehehe...just a little touch!:)

For the inside I made lines of boxes so that there would be spaces for his friends to write wishes and sign their names in it for him. This is so that the people who contributed their signatures or wishes would have ample space to write and all would look organized and neat inside the card. I am so happy to know that Sam's colleagues loved the card and it made Sam happy too with all the lovely wishes in it! That's enough to make my day! :)

A beaded christmas tree

CD002 (NOT FOR SALE)

Another Christmas card on my list! :) So excited about it! I've always wanted to do a Christmas tree card with some beads and sequins decorated on it...to add some glitters to it too. Yet again another simple design I made using an A6 size red card to have some contrast on the green tree and also some Christmas spirit to it! I sew on the tree the beads and sequins, LOVE doing that! Ever since I found a way of doing it on paper, I do attempt to use this technique whenever I find it being suitable for a particular design. I just love the effect it gives to the card.

I decorated the background with silver dots to symbolize the snow falling down on the decorated tree. It gives a feeling of cold breeze (the snow) and hotness (the red card) to it! hehehe! The tree itself was made by using two tones of green, lined with some little space between them to create a patterned design. Recently I just love doing that...lining up strips of different colored paper side by side to create a patterned design...kinda meditative to me I suppose to do that hehehe. :D
The card could just be left blank or have a simple Christmas message inside. I already have in mind who to give this special Christmas card to
...ooooh can't wait!!!! :D

Hen Night cards for the bride to be's closest friends!

HN001 (SOLD OUT)
A Hen Night card with a wedding theme!!! :)

Miniature pink lace bra adorned with sequins and next to it is a diamond gold ring made from gold and silver paper hehe...

7 daisy/gerbera flowers and there's that cute little pink lace panties with sequins on it hehe...

On the inside is a white paper insert with some simple wordings, which is a thank you note from the bride to be to her closest friends :)

A soft pink handmade envelope with a small white daisy flower to match the card...

I'm so excited about this new project of mine! I'm always excited to do something new with my client and this time around it has to do with the Hen Night party! :) This is my first time ever making a hen night card! Of course I had to do a little research on hen night cards and I saw that most of them had sexy corsets, and feathers on them hehe....some had sexy lingeries as well, with rings, handbags and evening dresses....most of the cards are either, red, black, dark pink or some in white colors...but.......for my client, it has to be different and special from the rest! :) Yup!

My client's wedding theme is soft green apple and soft turquoise....so she wanted her hen night cards to have that same color as well... not a problem! :) She loves Gerbera flowers to have as the flower bouquet on the cards..yikes! I didn't even know what a Gerbera flower looks like!!! hehehehe! So I did some research again! hahaha! Luckily it looks like a daisy flower except that the petals are bigger....and lucky for me, I have a craft punch of a daisy flower!! Yippeee! So it was easy for me to make the bouquet! Phew! :)

The hardest part for me would be to make the miniature sexy laced lingeries....oh boy, I truly needed a lot of patience to do those! Very tricky indeed! I got the sequins when I was in Alor Setar a few weeks ago...and they suited the lingerie very well I must say hehee...they are just the right size!! :)

I love the envelope with the cute white daisy on it at the back....matches the card perfectly..I wanted the envelope to have some kind of connection to the card and the daisy was the perfect thing for it! Usually I would just leave the envelope blank with no decorations whatsoever, but this time around I felt like it needed something there to make it look complete! I'm really happy with how it turned out and even happier for my "cute client" who is going to be celebrating her hen night soon!! All the best to you my dear!!
