Card with flowers in a box

Hi everyone, Janja here!

For today's post, I used one die from each of this year's releases and prepared the card in a box. I like to combine dies with each other. 

For the card we need:
  • white card base: 10.6" x 5.3", folded
  • black cardstock: 5" x 5"
  • two patterned paper: 4.8" x 4.8" and 4.8" x 2"
  • white and color cardstock
  • texture paste and stencil
  • stamp
  • embossing ink and white embossing powder
  • heat gun
  • white pigment ink pad
  • white pearl cardstock and transparent foil for the box
We prepare several cutouts with the die 3D flower #5.

The cutouts are molded with a shaping tool and assembled. 

Once we have selected patterned paper and cardstock trimmed to the desired size, we cut out a hole in the smallest of them in the form of an oval with a die from the basic set oval (4th die from the center).
Place a stencil on paper and apply texture paste over it with a spatula. 

While the textural paste is drying, we cut out another oval from black cardstock. We stamp the sentiment and treat it with hot embossing technique. The edges of the oval are shaded with white pigment ink. 
We place cutout, which is now seen as a blackboard, in the previously prepared hole. The edges are masked with a white oval frame. We use the basic die sets: an oval and stitched oval (4th die from the center).

With nets cutouts we enliven the background of the card. At the end glue flowers and greenery (the leafy vines die and the Lacey rose die). 

When a card is delivered in person, it's best if it is stored in a box. 
A box is made 0.40" greater than the base card. The height is 0.79". In the box cover we cut out the opening (4.5" x 4.5") and on the inner side of the box cover clamp foil, with double-sided adhesive tape. At the end, decorate the box cover. 
Our card is now neatly and securely stored. 

And don't forget on our April challenge - anything goes. You still have time to share your projects with us till the end of the month.

Dies, which I used at work:
