Thank you box card

Hello friends.

I’m up on the papermilldirect blog today with a fun box card that also folds to fit into your standard size envelopes.

I used:

Raspberry Pink Plain Card 240gsm
Apple Green Card Plain 240gsm
White Card Super Smooth 250gsm
Violet Plain Card 290gsm

You will also need the following craft supplies:
Paper Trimmer
Scoring board
Critter stamps I used Hello Bluebird
Rectangle Die or any shape die ( this will be for your window)
White embossing powder
Heat gun
Foam Tape
Pva glue
To start with you will need to cut down two pieces of card to the following measurements:
5 inches by 3/4 then turn the card and trim at 4 1/2
Next score a line at 4 1/2 and 5 1/4 inches.
Next using one piece of card I die cut a rectangle so that when the box is put together this will be showing the inside. Depending on the size of your die you will need to trim the side of your box flap so that once it’s all adhered it will all fit together nicely. I did adhere my box together before working on the inside of the box.
For the inside I trimmed down a piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm to A6 size and ink blended the background using inks. I coloured all my images and trimmed them out. I then die cut some grass using Apple Green Card Plain 240gsm and adhered this to the bottom of my insert and also behind the die cut piece of box.
Next I adhered the A6 piece into my box using double sided tape, I then added all the critters using foam tape and PVA glue.
For my greeting I stamped a sentiment onto a piece of Violet Plain Card 290gsmand heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. I trimmed this down and adhered acetate to the sentiment and adhered onto the bottom of the box.
Your box card is now complete.
You can trim down a smaller piece of card and adhere to the back of your box to write your sentiment.
I hope you have fun making some box cards.

Thanks for stopping by today!

A fun spring card

Hello how is everyone doing? I hope your all well and safe.

I managed to get into my craft room last night it felt so long since I made a card and it felt so good just to craft.

I used the gorgeous Magengo spring release and Papermilldirect card.

These images are just full of charm and it was so fun to colour them. Plus it’s always handy to have some cute birthday cards on hand!

I hope you all stay safe.

Thanks for stopping by today!

I love you most

Hello there!

I’ve made a sweet card Magengo our special moments stamp set. How sweet are the koala bears!

I coloured the images in using my spectrum noir markers and also ink blended some stars onto the background. I used Twinkly starts stencil (uniquely creative) for this and a purple ink.

I heat embossed the sentiment with some white embossing powder and added a die cut heart.
