Craftin Desert Divas Design Team are sharing interactive cards for the challenge this week! I decided to do a fun and bright box card using Craftin Desert Divas easy to use box card die. With this box card die I was able to put this beauty together rather quickly!
I am a lover of dies, especially stitched dies, and I used quite a few for this box card to help make it go faster from CDD:
- box card die
- mermaid lagoon stamp set
- ocean friends stamp set
- ocean border dies
- fall border dies
- cloud stencil
- broken china, salty ocean & antique linen oxide inks
- white embossing powder
- white uniball pen
- copic markers
To begin I die cut the box card and die cut the window in the front and trimmed off the flap. I added a piece of acetate behind the window. All the cute critters and mermaid I colored with copics and accented with the white pen.
For the inserts, I die cut the coral, and waves from the ocean border dies & the sand from the fall border dies. I colored the coral with copics, the waves I inked with broken china & salty ocean, and the sand with antique linen. Using the spacers that come with the box die set I glued them to the spacers and to the inside of the card.
I added the colored images with glue and pop dots to add even more dimension. For the flaps, I used the stitched dies from the box card die set on water color paper and inked with the broken china and salty ocean. I then heat embossed sentiment using versamark and white embossing powder for the side flaps. On the back flap, I used broken china ink over the cloud stencil to create the sky.
Thanks for stopping by!
