Anne Crofts said...

That's a clever idea, to make a drawer with a card; I've made books as an alternative to 'just cards' and this could be something else to wow people with.

You keep outdoing yourself, Pam! How is that even possible? Elegant, feminine, luxurious are too plain of a description. That mousse is something else! I have 4 colors on order. Hoping they will soon arrive. Your resin heart blends so lovingly with the pearls and flowers. All the papers and textures are gorgeous. I can feel the cherished emotion your friend must have felt upon seeing this dear creation, knowing you had made it. Thanks for sharing the creation process, too! XO

Beth Norman said...

Oh, Pam, you outdid yourself. How awesome that you created a box. It will definitely be a show piece and it will be so well loved.

Sandy said...

One of the most beautiful makes I have seen in a very long time. So gorgeous and such a keepsake. I wish I lived near you so I could get some private lessons or at least be a fly on the wall when you are creating!

Truly this was a labor of love as you were going through the creative process. The dies certainly carry out the 'lace' design and I like the mousse used on the dimensional objects. (just had my first time use of this product to add shimmer. Now I have other ideas on how to use it). This must be one of the most beautiful creations you've shared, and that's saying a lot! Love the delicate rose paper in the background, & the dimensional heart with the number in it. Just so many extra special details, to make this keepsake, and I'm sure it will be received and displayed with pride and love! TFS (I'll echo Sandy's comment, wish I could take lessons too!). Hugs

Betty McAlister said...

Beautiful keepsake for your friend, Pam. So many stunning features - gorgeous. X

MaryH said...

Pam thanks for the info on the die. Once I checked those edges, I rather thought this to be the case. However, it's just a tiny snip to free each edge, so I was happy. It's something I will try to keep in mind in future though. I like this particular die very much..it looks like a 'painted font' die that I have. And got another similar die in this order so I shall be inspecting the blade cutting on that one now! Appreciate your info. Hugs

Angela Radford said...

Hi Pam, lovely card. The details on your card are gorgeous, bet your friend will love this. Happy crafty week, Angela xXx

Donna said...

This must have taken some time, Pam. Beautifully detailed. I'm sure she loved it :)
