Hi everyone. This is Carmi posting again!
I could not be prouder of these three new cards.
To make these cards I started by unpacking The Boxer and Envelobox Creator Bundle with Advanced Techniques DVD for the Ultimate. I have been using my Ultimate (the purple case you see on my table) from Crafter's Companion for a year now so these boards were a nice new challenge. I had a wonderful afternoon watching the new DVD with a pot of tea. I could not wait to start a project and like a few of the other members of this design team I just loved the Tea Light card.
You would not believe that a three dimensional card could be created from one piece of card stock! The extra cutting allows you to add a small piece of acetate to make the window. All this then folds and becomes the card you see in my sample photo. The DVD instructions are easy to follow.
With this first card I was able to add a decoupage fairy to the front.
I chose velvet leaves and berries to add in the window box.
For the second card I attached another decoupaged fairy. I also added some of the Fairyopolis rub ons to the card front.
Ordinarily these flowers would be too thick for a card front. They worked perfectly for this 3d card!
The tea lights fit perfectly into the box part of this card. There really are endless possibilities for a card that is also a box!
Since the cards were so great I needed matching card stock enveloboxes for them. The new board (shown in photo above) is excellent. Making these took only a few minutes. They make the cards even more special!
