Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I’m making the SVGCuts Pumpkin Diorama Box Card from their “Harvest Sunset” file – I LOVE SVGCUTS files!!!! This box card is slightly different from those I’ve done in the past – it’s a diorama – wait till you see the finished card!!!
Above is a screenshot of Cricut Design Space. Two things to remember when using SVGCuts files – #1 change the scorelines to score and attach them to their pieces – #2 change the numbers to write and attach them to their pieces. You can have the scorelines cut, but I think they look better scored.
Here are the cutout pieces. I used Close To My Heart paper in Colonial White, Sweet Leaf, Poppy, Topiary, Honey, Autumn Terracotta, Saddle, and Chocolate. I also used Shimmer cardstock by DCWV and Enchanted by graphic45.
In the left picture, I assembled the flower – inking the petal edges with CTMH Autumn Terracotta and using a Tim Holtz brad for the center.
The center pic shows the assembled front panel. I inked the edges of the barrel with CTMH Cocoa, and the edges of the leaves with CTMH Topiary. I added some bubbles to the vine from my stash.
The right pic has the side panels attached to the front basket piece.
The left pic shows the back panel base attached with the sun peeking through. The right pic shows the decorative pieces attached.
This is Insert 1 – I didn’t embellish the frame because I think the pattern is beautiful just as it is. The right pic shows the insert attached.
Here is Insert 2 – it has curved shapes added to make it look more realistic – attention to detail, attention to detail . . . Insert 2 is attached in the right pic. You can see through Inserts 1 & 2 to the back – this feature is what makes it a diorama . . .
This is the back side of the back panel. A circle was included for you to stamp or write your sentiment on – they think of everything!!
These are the items I used to embellish the card – CTMH Topiary, Autumn Terracotta, Sweet Leaf, and Cocoa inks, colored bubbles from my stash, Tim Holtz brads, and Sparkle Shimmer spritz.
This was a different kind of envelope, and it was included with this svg kit. It has 4 pieces – the base, top flap, and 2 side flaps. I cut an extra top flap so I could line the inside. It was a cool envelope to create.
Not only are box cards impressive to look at, but they also fold flat so you can mail them in an envelope – demonstration above – the card fits perfectly.
Here’s the finished card. I would definitely make more diorama cards if SVGCuts created them (hint, hint).
I LOVE making cards, just sayin’.
