Summer is just around the corner.... but the weather has been warm enough to flip the switch and turn on the AC for a few hours every afternoon.
Sandy at Simply Crafty SVGs has put out a new batch of cards in the last week -- fun box cards.
I've made a couple of these cards from the new files. Love them!
I added a shaker element in the pitcher and literally filled it with polymer clay sliced lemons I found on Etsy a couple of years ago. So fun!
Used some collage podge on the pitcher and the lemon slices. The digital paper is from Creative Fabrica. It was perfect and grounded the card. The basic box elements for the card can be cut from a single 8.5 x 11 inch sheet of paper! Lots of inking and a little watercolor painting. I love the design of the glass in this file. It looks dimensional.
And then there was this one... who doesn't like donuts?
I used several mediums on this one. Inking, Dimensional Glaze, nail art bits and pieces and Pearl Luster Lumiere. It was fun - but was hard to wait for everything to dry! The original file does not have the transparent window. I created on for a little more fun and will likely add a sentiment to the window to personalize it when it is gifted.
Both cards were cut on the Skycut using SCAL6 Pro software to set up the SVG files for cutting. Paper from AC Cardstock. Bearly Art Glue and Scor-Tape were the adhesives used.
Both cards will fold flat and fit into a standard invitation envelope. If you choose to add a shaker component, there is a little bulk, so extra postage may be needed if you add any dimension like I have done.
