Start by creating the base out of card stock using this template as your guide. Make sure you use your bone folder to get nice sharp folds! Following the same template, create another layer out of your favorite designer paper. I prefer to use a sheet with a nice pattern but you could always create pieces out of different patterned papers. Once you have all of the scor lines marked, cut all the panels apart and also trim off 1/8″ on all sides so that the panels will fit onto the card base. Glue the panels onto your card base. If you are using 2 single sheets of patterned paper be sure to place your pieces on in the right order. Using the Arianna Lace Die, add a few die cuts to inside back panel. The flowers are stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Black Opal embossing powder and finally distressed with Archival Ink Red Geranium. The leaves are stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Green Tinsel embossing powder and finally distressed with Peeled Paint Distressed Ink. Finish by decorating as desired and don’t forget to add some bling!
To make the box, start by making a box with lid the size you need for your card. My box was 7″ x 5″ x 2″. Cut the lid in half and add a decorative cut on an angle. I made a quick template for the angle and drew a line on the sides before I cut them. This ensured that all the cuts were equal. Attach the top pieces to the base using a small piece of paper or ribbon as a hinge and cover the hinge with a piece of decorative card stock.
Thanks so much for visiting. Have a wonderful day!
