Spring Box Card with Pretty Pink Posh

Wednesday, March 27, 2024

Hi, friends! I’m continuing my collection of making holiday themed box cards with Spring and Easter! I started with die cutting the Scallop Box Card Dies out of yellow cardstock for the base pieces and smooth, white cardstock for the scalloped pieces to do some ink blending. I used the new Layered Butterfly Floral Stencils with Distress Oxides in Picked Raspberry, Saltwater Taffy, Salvaged Patina, and Squeezed Lemonade to create the design on the scalloped die cuts.

I assembled the Scallop Box Card base together and added the stenciled scalloped pieces to the panels. Using a large piece of watercolor cardstock, I used the same Distress Oxides to ink squish and blend all the colors to give a watercolor look. I also splattered on gold watercolor for some sparkle! When it was dry, I used the Stitched Eggs Dies and Decorative Butterflies Coordinating Dies to cut out eggs and butterflies. I die cut as much as I could out of the panel, but only a used a few for today and I’ll save the rest for a future project.

For the butterflies, I also stamped the bodies from the Decorative Butterflies Stamp Set with a pink ink and used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. I glued them to the center of the butterfly die cuts from the watercolor cardstock. I also cut the bunny feet and flower stem from the Big Easter Cupcake Dies, strips from the Sentiment Strips Dies, and flowers and leaves from the Spring Mug Additions Dies. I glued all of the layering dies together and created a scene on the shelf piece of my box card with the eggs, butterflies and flowers. I love the softness of the eggs and bright pink of the flowers!

I stamped my sentiment from the Decorative Butterflies Stamp Set onto my die cuts and added the sentiment to the front of the box card. My little bunny feet are sticking up above the sentiment and they’re my favorite part of the box card! Box cards have been so fun to make and I love having my Valentine, St. Patrick’s Day and now Easter box cards on my desk! I’d love to know what I should make for May - probably something for Mother’s Day? What would you like to see?!
