Card Patterns #29

Saturday, August 22, 2009

Happy Saturday peeps!! How's it going so far? I'm not working today so I got to sleep in! *aaahhh the luxury haha* i was staying up late last night browsing through the Quickutz Silhouette online shop, downloaded lots of designs that i can't wait to try! So far it has been pretty fun, the Silhouette...did a few layouts with it, have yet to try it out on cards yet. Anyhoos, still on the topic of die cutting our sponsor this week is The Cutting Cafe! They have WPC cutting files for sale too as well as some really cute digi stamps :) The design team got to play with a .pdf box template this week, lucky! Above is the sketch Mich specially made for the box, isn't it adorable? And below is my take:

I didn't change the box base but I added on some handles using a 1 3/4" circle punch & my paper cutter. I added on a little border accent at the bottom afterwards separately using a EK success border punch. The oval on the box is cut out using the Colluzle (love it, can't do cute boxes without it!) The butterfly & flower acetate accents are all from an old Heidi Swapp 'clear extras', i simply cut them out & added some bling. Here's the close up:

I do hope you've enjoyed my Card Patterns share this week, remember to post your take on the sketch over at the CP blog! It doesn't have to be a box, it could be a card or whatever :) Don't forget to type in your name and direct link to your card for this sketch at Mr. Linky box provided below this post by Aug 28 (Friday) at 11:59PM Eastern Standard Time.
