Experiments in Fabric

I thought I was making my card based on Card Patterns sketch #70 (I had seen the sketch only once)......but it turns out that I have mixed up sketches #69 and # 70...........anyway I had fun making it......
I have been thinking about using some kind of fabric in my cards lately, and yesterday I finally got hold of some fabric scraps (from my sister who has an abundance of these as she designs her own outfits).
The background and the flowers are made from a traditional Indian cotton fabric known as Kalamkaari.......
Thanks for visiting!

A customized card

This is the most customized card I have ever made.......I enjoyed making it cause even though the lady who ordered this was very specific about what should be written and also about some other stuff she let me do the rest.
This has been made as a maze book with 6 pages (excluding the cover) and measures 9.5x9.5 inches.
This is the cover, the alphabets for "friend" and "love" are cuttlebug diecuts. The others are stamped using my newest stamp set, which is a Hero Arts alphabet stamp set.....I'm in love with it :)
This is what the 2nd n 3rd pages look like......there is space to put a picture on the 3rd page......have put a few tags to write messages.
This is page number 4....have some stamping n masking.
Page number 5...the rectangles on the right edge open up to reveal messages.
Page number 6 and 7.
I have tried to give a party look on page 6. page 7 has handmade jigsaw puzzles inside the envelopes. This is what the jigsaw puzzle looks like.

The name has been written using Tim Holtz alphabet masks, just love them.....but I have a huge problem with storing them, I keep losing them.......I actually lost 3 alphabets ('c', 'o' and 'h'), one moment they are on my desk n the next moment they disappear into thin air!! I spent almost an hour looking for them with no luck (I was able to find 2 of them the next day, but my 'c' is still missing :( ), any suggestions how this can be avoided?
Thanks for looking!

A quick card

I made this in record time........have been sleeping late for some days and was drop dead exhausted last night when I made this.......just love how it turned out. I made this for a colleague who is leaving the company.
I need a little input from you,my blog's readers, I would like to know if you face any problems in opening my site? for eg does it take a long time to load? or does your system crash whenever you open it (I have had a couple of complaints like that)? or do you face any difficulty in leaving comments? Please let me know if you face any of these problems or others.......I have no clue about why this is happening so if any of you knows what might be the possible reasons for this and ways to fix this do let me know, I'll be more than grateful!

Have a great weekend!

I completed this last week, but didn't get time to post. I've been busy with a lot of things lately, but more on that later.
This measures 12x12 inches and has 19 pages......took a lot of effort and time, but was worth it in the end....

Have a great day!

Pink n Green

Pink and green seems to be my fav color combo these days. I made this late last night......it is a pop-up pull out card.......made it for a friend's daughter whose nickname is "Dodo"
This is how it looks standing up.

Have used loads of my favorite crochet lace.......the alphabets are cuttlebug die-cuts.
