For todays project I have 2 videos to share with you. In the first video, I’m making a box card, although it’s probably not the box card you were expecting. This fun fold technique is a front opening box card, rather than top opening. And for a change, due to popular request, I am colouring with pencils today instead of Copic markers. The second video shows how I coloured the fox and puppy stamps using Prismacolor pencils. Let’s start by taking a look at this very sweet set by Kindred Stamps … Inseparable Friends.
For this project I wanted to keep it CAS (clean and simple) … I’m really not one for a lot of embellishments (which you would never guess looking at the stacks of embellishment tubs in my papercrafting cupboard!). I just didn’t want to add too much bulk to the card, as the folds make it bulky enough already.
