Summer Box Card

Hi, everyone! I saw this cute Lori Whitlock box card file in the Silhouette store and thought I'd give it a go. It incorporates cut shapes along with print and cut shapes.

Box Card

I've made box cards in the past, but not very many. I'm really happy how easily this one came together.

The base is dark brown, not black as it appears in the photo.

I added an additional shadow layer for the sentiment scallop circle using the offset feature of the Silhouette software.

The cute little girl swimmer is a print and cut.

Pattern papers from a new DCWV stack called "Little Miss." (When I say "new," I mean new to me.) I went to Joanns here for the first time over the weekend and was thrilled that the 12x12 stacks were $9.99 PLUS I got to use a 20% off coupon on top of that. Woo-Hoo! It was a good shopping day.

The sentiment stamp is from Close To My Heart #A1188 called "Hello Sunshine." I cut the sentiment in half and stacked it. You can shop at my online CTMH store here.

This card does fold flat for easy mailing as shown above.

Enjoy your day!

  1. WOW Your Joanns is different than the two in my area - no coupons on already on sale items - it used to be if an item was on sale for 30 percent off or any amount and you had a 50% off coupon you could use the 50% off coupon and get the better deal - they stopped that a long time ago! Good for you! That is how I buy my paper stacks - $9.99 - have a blessed week lovely card!

  2. So CUTE! Wonderful box card! And lucky you for getting a great deal at Joann's... My Joann's sucks! They never have anything new and hardly have anything in stock... very sad really. Enjoy the rest of your weekend! :)
