Just wanted to share this fun "box" card. It was so much fun and the eBrush made it all the easier to complete.
Cardstock (this project started with all white cardstock)
paper trimmer/bone folder
Dies (Teresa Collins - Personally Noted and Thankful Holidays)
Embossing folder (Woodgrain)
brads, half pearls
Cut a strip of cardstock 9 inches wide by 3 inches high. Cut another strip 4 inches wide by 3 inches high.
Score the 9 inch strip at 3 and 6 inches. Score the 4 inch strip at 1/2 inch and 3 1/2 inches. These smaller scores make the tabs to attach to the larger strip. Set aside.
Cut 3 strips 4 inches by 1/2 inch. Score each of these at 1/2 and 3 1/2 (these will be the inserts to hold your decorations)
Cut 3 panels for the front and 2 sides of the box at 2 3/4 by 2 3/4 inches. Emboss as desired. The woodgrain embossing folder fits all three of these panels with room to spare for one pass through the Cut-n-Boss.
Get your markers and eBrush and start coloring.
Put your box together now. Place the inserts in the box, so the top edge of the strip is level with the top edge of the box. Fold the box flat as you secure the tabs. There is enough room in the box to add another insert if you'd like. I chose 3 for this project.
Using the TC dies, cut all of the lettering (Personally Noted), the small flowers and the greenery. The poppy die can be found here.
I ran the flowers through the paper crimper a couple of times and then using the ebrush added a little bit of color. If you choose to make blooms on the greenery, mask the area and spray the rest. Fill in the uncolored area with a marker. Embellish with brads and/or half pearls and other details as desired.
Tip: I added a strip of paper to some of the flowers, greenery to get a little more height. The three poppies are glued together on the overlapping petals in a slight arch.
I tried for a bit of ombre shading on the wording by holding the eBrush close to the paper and then pulling it away as you spray towards the top of the piece. Glue in place.
Thanks for dropping by and taking a peek today. Hoping you have some creative time on your calendar this week. Have some fun! It's a great stress reliever! Don't forget to stay tuned to the Craftwell blog for the rest of the week, I'm sure you'll be blown away by the other projects from the design team.
