Although I design quite a few cut files, I also like to use other people’s designs too. I’d seen these 3D Box cards around on the net and thought I’d give one a try. I had my niece’s Birthday coming up which gave me a great excuse to have a go at these.
Here’s my effort. First the outside:
And when opened up:
I decorated the envelopes with scraps. and the little parcel at the front is some wrapped up money. The woodgrain is not paper – it’s actually some Book Covering Adhesive Contact. I did all of the text with the Silhouette using the sketch pens.
The cards look a bit complicated but they’re really not hard and there’s an assembly video available too which is handy (Details below)
I’d also used the same combo of woodgrain, with the patterned paper and kraft paper to wrap up a gift for a friend last month – I rather liked the muted tones although it’s not my usual style. I’m trying to break out and use patterns a little more.
Credit where Credit’s Due:
The 3D box card is design number 56156 by Lori Whitlock available in the Silhouette Store. The links to the assembly video are there too if you get one of these files. I’m going to try out the Easter Design next. (no affiliation – I just think these are cool)
