Watcha mush! (hehe). So I’ve been having a mixed designing/making day today (which has been fabulous I must say) and have come up with a new box frame card front set that I would like to share with you.
First let me show you what I have made …
Did a whacking great happy dance when I had completed this one I can tell you!
Anyways, I had enough time to catalogue the steps for this one so here goes a quick overview…
First I cut out the box file card front set (including the mat/layer) with my Brother Scan N Cut.
First I stuck the inner flaps to the back panel and pegged whilst the glue dried.
Then on went the outer edges.
Which were again glued and pegged.
Once the edges had all dried I then applied the front of the box frame, to which I had already applied the layers.
The waste from the front frame was used to fill the background when I applied the frame to the four inch card.
A little strip of green paper was then chippy-chopped to give it a grassy look, folded in half and suck to the bottom edge of the frame.
To prepare the embellishments I reached for the More Than Words kits from Craftwork Cards.
Two love hearts (with words on) were stuck to two cocktail sticks that I had coloured in with a black alcohol marker.
Flowers from the kits were also shaped using the Tonic Flower forming tools.
I also found a little swishy banner that I thought would look lovely at the top of the frame.
It was then down to the Pinflair glue gel and a pair of tweezers (and a steady hand) to arrange all of the bits and pieces into the frame – and hey presto! Done!
So what do you reckon? Not bad is it?
I am most proud that I designed the three dimensional box frame – it’s involved various computer software programs, much testing and much changing – but I did it – hurrah!!!
But listen, I must let you get on with your day.
Don’t forget that you can get these box frame card fronts from my shop – www.digitalcraftemporium.co.uk – if you would like to have a go at one of these. There are various sizes to choose from if you prefer bigger.
Thanks once more for visiting and I look forward to seeing you again soon.
