Kiwi Lane & Authentique Spirited Collection
Good morning! Alicia here for Kiwi Lane! This month I had the most fun working with Authentique Paper! It is such beautiful paper I don't want to cut it! But that is best part of working with Kiwi Lane, you can pick out the "prettiest" parts of the paper to use! Which I did while making this very fun card in a box. You can find many instructional videos on youtube to make this card or check back to my post from the first time I made one for more specifics.
I will admit that this box does not fit in an A2 envelope, but I intend to use it as a piece of home decor. I used the Halloween templates for the ghost (1) and the large pumpkin (3). I added doodles and "stitching" to all the cuts.
See how I cut the owl's wings from the lacy side of the wood paper? I love how she turned out! I used a Stampin' Up Raven lace for the eyelashes which I thought went perfect with the "lacy" wings and pumpkin. I used Autumn 5 template for the owl. I also used it to make the "wings" by tracing the outside, placing the point on the other side of the template and tracing the other "side". I hope that makes sense. Then I popped them up on pop dots.
On each side of the box I used a different shape,on this side I used Tiny holiday 2T for the leaf.
On the pumpkins, I did the same thing as the owl wings...I traced just part of the template to make a stem out to the wood grain paper. I also hung a cute brass charm from this pumpkin! I used Tiny holiday 4T for the small pumpkin.
For the acorn, I used the new Autumn 2 template with the Authentique paper that looks like wood (again) with doodles.
I added a little Delight! (4) to the bottom of the base of the box to dress it up a bit more.
I also added some Authentique Spirited stickers to the back. Every thing is edged with Quick Quotes Midnight Confessions.
