Hello Blue Fern Studios Crafters, it's Aida from @aidaville .We are into May and coming right up is Mother's Day, with celebrations for the special women who are holding families together. Today I have a Box Card that flattens down to be put into into an envelope for easy mailing, and opens up into a Box that sits upright very prettily, perfect for displaying. I've used mostly the Homespun Collection which with it's pale pinks and greens and embellishments in the theme of Home.
Homespun Paper Collection and Printed Chipboard.
Others : Heavy weight white cardstock | Pale pink cardstock
Here you can see how it looks when flat, with all the lovely details in the front, leading to the surprise of popping into a 3-D Box simply by pushing in the sides !
This is how I started. The box is 4.5 inches square front and back, the sides are 2.5 inches on the top/bottom with the height of 4.5 inches.
2 strips of paper were adhered to the inside and the details attached to them.
When the box sits upright, the beautiful flowers of the paper create a garden feel.
The Teapot and Cup were fussy cut from the paper design.
In the photo below, the fussy cut details and printed chipboards are stacked in 3 layers.
A closer look of the layers in the top left corner.
I love working with the Blue Fern Printed Chipboards as it's an easy way to build up the layers very quickly.
Thank you for visiting the Blog today ! I hope this post will inspire you to create a handmade card of your own with a sweet message for your Mom.
I'll be back soon, keep coming by for more beautiful ideas from the Design Team.
