Happy Friday to you! I have a really cool card to share with you today for the Heart2Heart Challenge happening this week. They are looking for projects/cards with folds. After searching different styles of cards on the web, I found one called a book box card. LOVE IT!This card looks like a shadow box, but the front cover opens like a card. The tutorial I found online used an embossed acetate window on the front cover, so I did the same (you know I love acetate!). But you could just as easily make a regular card front so the inside is a surprise for the recipient.Paper from the new CTMH Buzz & Bumble paper pack was used on this card. The branches and beehive were cut using the Art Philosophy and Artiste Cricut Cartridges. To get the rounded lines on the beehive, Cocoa ink was sponged on using a piece of circular cardstock as a mask. I then used a dotty hexagon stamp from the new Honeycomb stamp set to add a subtle dotted pattern in Crème Brulée ink. My bumblebee is from the Jardin stamp set.I think the flowers on this card were the only non-CTMH products. I had the little orange premade blossoms in my stash, so I used those on the tree branches.For a complete set of instructions on how to make a book box card click here. The instructions are really clear and there are lots of photos. Have a great weekend everyone and hopefully you’ll have some time to try a book box card of your own.
