Winter Box on Card

     Here is card that I have seen here and there. I have been looking forward to making it. The hardest part about this card is giving up on the tutorials. I have yet to find a tutorial that has accurate cutting directions to make it. It's a good thing I start a project like this one with inexpensive Hobby Lobby heavyweight card stock. I would have thrown away lots of patterned paper if I had started there. 
     Ultimately I ended up designing the card base and mat on the Silhouette. Since I wanted a scalloped edge, this was the easiest way to achieve this.

     I embossed antique gold snowflakes on the mats (inside and outside). Most of the components are from Graphic 45 Season's Collection. In keeping with the winter theme, I added die cut mittens.

     This metallic gold card stock from Paper Cuts pairs well with the embossing powder I used. 

     I have been asked how to get the box into an envelope. The answer is that you don't. I gifted 3 of these this Christmas even though there were no Christmas items on them. I placed the card in an envelope, then placed the box on top of the envelope. These were hand delivered. 

     BYW: Inside each box was a pair of handmade earrings with beads made from this patterned paper. A matched set you could say.

     I will be making 16 cards and 4 calendars with this Graphic 45 Seasons Paper. All of these SEASON cards can be made using:

  • one sheet of each of the patterned paper 
  • one sheet of each of  Prints and Solids
In order to make All Seasons cards and calendars, you only need purchase the following items once:
  • Tags and Pockets
  • Chip Board
  • Ephemera
  • Stickers
  • Season's Patterns and Solids 
Stay tuned for more cards this year.
