SUNNY DAY CRAFTING CHALLENGE #35 BOX CARDS/OPTIONAL ANYTHING GOES

Hello Crafty Friends,
We have a new challenge starting today over at
SUNNY DAY CRAFTING
The theme for this challenge is...
Box Cards - Optional Anything Goes

Here is my inspiration card for the challenge...
 Here is what I used to make my card...
Digi stamps by: Buddly Crafts
Colored with Marco Raffine Colored Pencils
 The Paper Studio 4.5"x6.5" 'Kirby Teesdale Studio'
DCWV 4.5"x6.5" 'The Old World Mat Stack'
Tattered Lace Dies 'Florentine Flourishes'
 Hand Made Modern 'Neon Craft Twine'
Paper Roses and String Pearls
Martha Stewart Crafts Ultimate Tool Kit - Score Board
Unbranded Rectangle Die
Gem-Tac Permanent Adhesive Glue
Darice Permanent Double Sided Tape Roller
Inspiration from this YouTube video

After cutting two patterned papers the same size, 5"x4.25", I then scored each end at 1/2" then 1". Then I positioned the rectangle die in the center of the top paper and ran it through the machine. Using the same die, I cut around the image to frame it. Then placing the top paper evenly over the
bottom paper, I used the opening of the top paper as a guide to tape the image onto the bottom paper. Then I did the folds on the papers, by folding the top paper mountain fold closest to center, then valley fold at the edge. The bottom paper is the opposite on the folding. Note: I didn't think of gluing the string pearls on each side of the image until after the papers were taped together. Now I know it would have been a good idea to do first, lol. Both papers are taped together evenly, on the sides. Then I glued the flourishes on, by placing parts behind the top paper and coming out onto the front of it. Kind of like a vine would travel. Then I glued the flowers at the end of the vine pieces. After making a little bow with the craft twine, I glued it onto the top left corner, over the vine.

And that's my DT card.
I hope you like it and it will give you some inspiration.

Happy Crafting,
Hugs, Sherry x
