Blog Candy and Two Cards to Share

I cut out an oval from the dark blue card stock and then embossed it. What I was trying to do wasn't working so I put a light tan behind the cut out oval and stamped the saying on it. Made the frame around the oval with
Spellbinders. Punched out circle from patterned paper and put it on a bottle cap. The Thank You is an embellishment I bought. I used stickers for the frame around the dark blue card stock.
The card is a off centered gate fold. I cut out the octagon on the red card, then cut it out on the printed paper. I made the white frame with Spellbinders. I glued the printed paper and frame to one side of the card. I opened up the card then cut the printed paper and frame. I glued the other printed paper to the other side of the card. Added pearls. I did use a glitter pen and made a frame inside the opening, not sure if I would do this again.

It’s another Crackerbox Palace Thursday and Vicky is having issues with blogger, so I (Karen) am helping out  by posting the cards she is sharing this week.  Aren’t they fun? I  especially love the monkey one!  I will let her share the details of how she made them when she is able.

But  for now, Mr. Random has chosen and the winner of last Thursday’s blog candy is:  Leanne!  Here is her winning comment from the CBP blog: “Lovely cards. Like the snowmen all wrapped up. I'm your newest follower.
Leanne, please send me or Crackerbox Palace your address and your choice of which stamps you want (see your options below), so we can get you the stamps you have won.

  1. The monkey is so funny with those red lips, and the sentiment! I would give this to my husband for Valentine's for sure!

    That is an interesting card blank too.

  2. Love the monkey card with the off center gatefold! I'll have to try that soon. Love the color combination!

  3. Wild and crazy monkey. I liked the way you finished the thank you card and that you shared that something didn't work. I don't feel so alone. LOL

  4. Oh, both of those cards are wonderful ! I especially love the gate fold with the monkey. Very creative using a bottle cap for an embellie!

  5. Lovely gatefold card! Thrilled to be the winner. Thanks! Off to e-mail you.

  6. Both are fantastic! Love the gate fold card - and the monkey is just darling!
