I am having fun trying different card styles. I really like the looks of this one!
This is called a box card and I used the great tutorial at Splitcoaststampers. It starts with a 8 1/2" x 11" piece of patterned paper. With scoring and folding, it becomes a box. It is perfect for a gift card or cash! The finished card will measure 4 1/4" square. My papers are K&Company Watercolor Bouquet. This is a very pretty pack of double-sided paper and I love the colors and designs!
The following photo shows the box, belly band, and the inside panel.
I used the Cricut Lite Lacy Labels cartridge for the scallop-edge labels. This image is the last one on the second line of the keypad--Joy label. I did not cut the shift layer for Joy. I used a Just Rite Happy Birthday stamp for the sentiment. I have not worked with these stamps before, but I do like the finished look. I stamped the image using Martha Stewart Forget Me Not blue ink and then used the center point function on the Expression to cut the scallop label. The flower is cut using Martha Stewart Layering Daisy. Pop dots are used in between the layers and pearls from my stash finish the flower. For the belly band I cut 1 1/2" x 10" strip of patterned paper, wrapped it around the card keeping it loose and glued the ends. You want this so it will slide off and on the card. The inside panel is cut 4" x 4", inked edges and corners are rounded.
Martha Stewart Flower Shower Punch is used on the strips on the box edges.
Hope you enjoy this card! If you try one, let me know so I can visit!
