Hi everyone! I hope everyone had a great week! We had a bit of gloomy weather, but some sunshine is coming this weekend, making me very happy! Today I wanted to share a Birthday card I made for a dear friend of mine, who I have known since college! I decided to color the images from My Favorite Things Adorable Elephants and create a box card with the Outside the Box Level Up Die-namics.
To make this card, I stamped out all the images, cut them out with my Brother ScanNCut, and colored them with the following Copic markers:
Elephants: W3, W1, W0, W00
Balloons: BG15, BG13, BG11, BG10, RV10, RV21, RV23, RV25, YG13, YG03, YG01
Butterflies: Y15, Y13, Y11, RV55, RV52
Flowers: Y15, Y13, Y11, RV55, RV52, RV25, RV23, RV21
I cut out all the pieces from the Outside the Box Level Up Die-namics and the Outside the Box Grassy Hills Die-namics from white cardstock, and the sentiment piece from colored cardstock. Next, I used Distress Ink in Salvaged Patina over a cloud stencil to create the cloud background. Then I colored the grass with Distress Ink in Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron. Once the box was assembled, I played around with the placement of the images until I was happy with the way it looked.
Box cards are so much fun to make. It may seem like they would be challenging to put together, but they are not! An excellent way to start is to cut out all the pieces and put them all together to see how they will look and how much space you have to put the images on. I made my first box card using the same My Favorite Things die and a stamp set from Lawn Fawn a few weeks ago. You can check it out here. I hope I inspired you to give this type of card a try!
Thanks for stopping by! – Mona
