A 3D Box Card for a Special Surprise!

Hi, all. So glad to be back crafting after such a long time. Followers know that I broke my femur back in the middle of May and have been out of commission. Remember this?
Well, I had a craft area where I stood to craft, which left me uncrafting (is that a word?) for way too long. I'm still on a crutch, but have been able to revamp my craft room with a beautiful new desk that I got on clearance at Office Depot (60% off!) and now I can sit and craft to my heart's content. So get ready....

The card I'm featuring today is made with The Robin's Nest cardstock. I love their products and was very happy to be able to play with them again. I am applying for the Design Team again, so here is my project.

To start with, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut a 3D Box Card designed by Samantha Walker. Here is what they pieces look like set up on my screen.

I used the TRN Red Classic Swirl for the box part of the card, and TRN Valentine Stripe for the accents.

Since the score lines are already cut with the design, all I had to do was fold and add some scoretape.

I adhered the accent pieces to the top and inside of the card and assembled the box.

It went together so quickly and the papers just pop with each other!

Once folded closed, the band goes around to keep it from popping open.

I found some cut little stickers in my stash from The Paper Studio called Christmas Holly. I placed them on both the outside and inside of the card.

I added a couple more stickers and some green Dew Drops (which are stuck down with Patina Stickles to add a little glitter to them).  This 3D Box Card is perfect to tuck in a gift card or other small item. I think I'll be making several of these for the holiday season.

Supplies used for this project:
   Red Classic Glitter Swirl Cardstock by The Robin's Nest
   Valentine Stripe Cardstock by The Robin's Nest
   Green Dew Drops by The Robin's Nest
   3D Box Card by Samantha Walker
   Christmas Holly by Paper Studio
   Patina Stickles

Wish me luck on the Design Team!

Also, as a bonus, I have included photos of a few other cards I whipped up recently.  Hope you like them!

Hope you are all inspired and like what I have to share with you today.

Til next time, keepin' it crafty!
