Boxed in

If you are a regular here on my blog, you probably know I enjoy making fancy fold cards. This explosion box card caught my eye when browsing through SCS tutorials. I like Beate’s crafting style so made this project in a similar style to hers.

My other inspiration was The Taylored Expressions “Take Note” challenge. I had this box card idea yesterday night but was thinking about what to put inside the box. The TE Bloghop and challenge for the February Key Ingredients kit was perfect! I put some post-its inside the box, cut down to side and stamped with a cute TE butterfly stamp.

Here is my box card in its unopened form:

Here is also something interesting about the card lid. I wanted to participate in the Sunday Sketch challenge at 365 Cards as well so made the lid of this card using the challenge sketch. Here is a close-up of the lid:

I cut the box and its lid on my Silhouette Cameo using measurements from Beate’s tutorial on SCS. I will post the SVG files here as soon as I upload them. Please remember to credit me when you use them!
