My First Box Card!

Trending big time are these adorable box cards, and I bit the bullet. I won't tell you how many years this took me to put together, but you can imagine! This week at Lisa's Blogger Challenge it's FLOWERS, so I just had to do this, there..... it's Lisa's fault!!


I used an SVG cuts file in my Cricut Explore to make the box. I am still very uncomfortable using the machine, but I hope to get better as time goes on. The hardest part of this for me was to choose the papers! I am not very good at that....I have hoards of patterned paper, but don't feel comfortable using it. (When I started stamping and card making, we didn't have paper like that, so I never "learned" how! I really have to force myself to use it.) I really should stop buying it, but you know how that goes, lol.  I've already started laying out my next box card, hoping that it will be easier.

Thanks for stopping by, hugz.........
