*** My First Box Card!

I've been seeing all of these beautiful Box Cards on Pinterest and Blogs, so I just had to give one a try. I was surprised at how easy it came together. I will definitely be doing more of them. Here is my first attempt...

Open Box Card


Side View of Flat Box card.     
The DP I have had for ages! I fell in love with it when I saw and have been saving it for a "special project" and this one won! The digital image is by Saturated Canary. I coloured her with my Copics. I fussy cut out the image and the little bird that is with it. The bird I attached with a thin strip of clear (stiff) packaging, so it looks like it is just hovering beside this little cutie. The flowers are fabric and I found them at the $ Store! I used a Martha Stewart punch on the edges. The sentiment is just computer generated and then cut out with a Spellbinders' Die. I attached a little wooden bird, that I inked, by the sentiment. A simple jute bow is attached on one of the front sections.
This was a real fun project to do and I know I will definitely be sharing more "Box Cards" with you in the future.
Until next time.
hugs,
Nancy
