Hello! Today I am guest designing for Concord & Ninth to show you some of the newest and coolest products on planet earth! These DIY box cards are such a great product design and create simple and lasting decorations that can go through the mail. Not to mention, they are Christmas themed… 🙂
(The video below will be a HUGE help in the construction of the cards, as it is hard to type out.)
Here are all of the important measurements to cut your card stock before die cutting:
Holy Night – Background 6.75″ tall 4.25″ wide, Palm Trees 5″ tall 3.75″ wide, Mary 5″ tall 3″ wide, Stable 2.5″ tall 5″ wide.
Christmas Cottage – Background 6.75″ tall 4.25″ wide, Tree Line 3″ tall 5″ wide, Single Tree 3″ tall 5″ wide, Cottage 2.5″ tall 5″ wide.
After die cutting all of the shapes it’s time to start ink blending! I started off by in blending the background, the darker the contrast the better your scene pops out. Then I ink blended all of the shapes individually with a very light hand. To assemble the box card fold in all of the edges from the notches and adhere them onto the background of the card.
For the second box card coloring is simple and takes only minutes! I started off by adding my lightest color of ink on my stamp to start out. Then, I rolled on the darker color of ink at the bottom of the stamp to get an ombre look. Follow the same steps to adhere it together and your box cards are finished!
