The seem around the text on the front, is done by hand, with silver tread.

GD hÄnglar & stÄnglar

A couple of weeks ago, I was asked to be a guest designer at hÂnglar & stÄnglar the month of may :)
Did I want to? Oh, yes I did!!!
I got some beautiful new stamps in the mail, and was asked to make a couple of projects with them. 
The stamps where SO cute, *smiling all over my face*, and I immediately got the perfect plan
on how to use them!! 


So okay, here's my first project, with my first ever sponsored hÄnglar & stÄnglar stamps:
I've made a card box :) 
The idea for the template to this box, did I get from the Double Dutch Challenge #41
but I drew my own template out of it, with my own messurements :)

Recipe:
Size: 14 x 16 cm
Ink: Archival Ink - Coffee for stamping, Distress Ink - Refills for colouring.
Papers: Tim Holtz - Idea-Ology "Vintage Shabby", Bazzill - Vanilla cardstock, 
Canson Aquarellpaper 200 g.
Tools: Martha Stewart - Eyelet Lace border punch, Spellbinders - Mega Long Ovals & Hearts, Marianne Design - Creatables LR0117 leaf (bought at Bunny Zoe's Craft), Polyshrink Plastic.
Embellies: Unik Hobby - roses and charm, May Arts - Ribbon (bought at Inky Wings).
The 2 images are masked together with the branch. The branch is stamped both ways.

A big thank you to Maya, who asked me to do this!
♥Tusen takk Maya-vennen♥

I'm also entering Scrappiness' Spring Challenge with this box :)

Thanks a lot for all your sweet comments - you're the best!
♥Hugs, Lena Katrine♥
