Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I’m making the SVGCuts Nativity Box Card from their Yuletide Box Cards Kit.
Above is a screen shot of the uploaded images in Cricut Design Space. Two things to remember when using SVGCuts files: #1 Change the scorelines to score (not cut) and #2, attach them to the appropriate pieces. Also, SVGCuts has assembly videos that demonstrate how to assemble most projects from start to finish – pretty awesome!!
These are the cutout pieces – I stored them in this container from Gina K Designs – I have cats and when I have a project with lots of pieces, it’s safer to keep them in a container. Just sayin’ . . .
I used Close To My Heart cardstock in Linen.
I ran some of the pieces through my eBosser using an Anna Griffin embossing folder called ‘Amelie Lace’.
Above are the three card inserts. Pretty simple so far, right?
This is the back section of the card. I added the angel to the left photo. On the right, I added the nativity panel – this makes the card stiffer and more stable.
Above is a closeup of the star – there are three additional layers on the left and a silver foil star was added on the right.
Next, the middle insert of some sheep and one of the wisemen was added to the back section.
Here the front panel with the other two wisemen, a shepherd and a sheep was added.
I embellished the halos and star layers with the CTMH gold shimmer brush.
Here’s the finished card and its envelope – simple and yet so beautiful.
One of the best features of box cards is that they fold flat and can be placed in an envelope and mailed. I always put extra postage on them – they are bulkier than your typical cards and this particular one is square, which means it has to be manually posted.
