It is a sad fact of life to have to make a sympathy card. I thought the  Hearty Crafts Half Circle Flowers suited this purpose really well.  A backing of plain card and Spellinders dies with a greeting finished my card.

3D Box Card Tutorial 

You will need Card 10 ¾” x 6” Acetate 5”x3 ½” 3d image Stickers Score Board I have used Hearty Crafts 3D paper Tole from Blue Edge Crafts and stickers from Sticker Store


Score the card from the left side at ¾”, 1 ¼”, 1 ¾”, 5 ¾”, 6 ¼”,6 ¾” Burnish all the folds well. Fold the score lines in the following way from the left. Mountain, valley, mountain and the next score lines in the same way.

Attach acetate to the inside of the opening using double sided tape 


Construct the3D image and decide what type of background you would like.
I have used a Spellbinders die but you could add patterned paper or an embossed panel or just leave the background plain. 

Glue the image to the plain panel and then glue the card togethe…

Craft Mad Monthly Swap

Our theme for the Craft Mad Monthly Swap last month  was to make two cards for our partner using Navy Sea Green and Sand colours. I immediately thought of the seaside. I backed my card with navy card added a very large tag with a circle cutout and used coloured sand for the three colours. Added cork embellishments and a greeting and enamel dots.
