Today I am sharing a birthday card that I created for my daughter.
To create a card base I used the Mini 3D Vignette Valentines Mailbox which is the Amazing Paper Grace January 2021 Die of the Month.
As a member of the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team, I receive free dies to use in my projects.
At the end of the past I am sharing some photos showing how I put together the card. I used one of the hearts as a closure.
I created a pocket in a middle part and added there an insert with a photo.
To create the insert I folded a card in a half and then I die cut first a shape with the outline die only and then I die cut the decorative part.
I die cut six time the main shape using heavy patterned paper (30cm square) and snipped of the hinges from each panel.
Then I cut two pieces that I used to connect three panels. I scored each in a middle leaving 1/4'' gap. It gave me a room for my card so it closes flat.
When I was gluing the hinges I kept two Mail Boxes about 3 mm away from each other (the top part does not meet). Otherwise it would obstruct the card opening. To align the parts I placed the top Mail Box upside down to the previous one.
When I adhered all parts together I added the opposite Mail Boxes using 3D tape. I was planning to add the middle one as a plain panel but then I changed my mind and I added 3D tape only at the edges (like the left panel) creating a pocket. I added an insert with picture in this pocket.
Thank yo so much for stopping by.
