Box Card

30 December 2011

I've been playing around with different Card shapes all day. This is one of the two cards I made, the other one is somewhat rough around the edges, but good for a learning exercise.

This card folds flat to make a 13cm x 13cm card for mailing so easily fits into a standard square envelope which is generally (here in Australia) 14cm x 14cm.

Everything used on this card is From Stamping Up.

I used Wild Wasabi for the base of the box card, Very Vanilla for the contrast, and a sheet of pattern paper from a now retired DSP Patterns Stack, (it was in the last, not current catalogue)

The Stamps I used are Fast and Fabulous, and Because I care. I stamped the images in Wild Wasabi and Pretty in Pink , additional colour for the internal image (from Because I care) was added using Regal Rose.

I flat mounted the Pattern paper onto the Very Vanilla, and then onto the base card, the stamped images were cut out and mounted with dimensionals (foam mounts) I did the same for the Because I Care sentiment inside.

I finished off with small bows in 1/4" Certainly Celery Grosgrain ribbon, (fixed in place with hot glue) and the only non SU product, Kindy Glitz in the centre of each flower.

Thank you for looking.

Happy Crafting!
