Spring Flower Pot Box Card by DT Nancy

Spring Flower Pot Box Card by DT Nancy

Here is the third box card in Nancy’s box card series.   This time, she designed her own version of the Spring Flower Pot Box Card, with a few modifications, adding double petals and some reinforcements.  As with all box cards, it flattens to fit into an envelope. Click here to visit her blog and see more photos.

Orchid Card using Simply Crafty SVGs Orchid Box Card SVG.

Hello, Janet here with a new folding box card. It was a treat to make this SVG file for the Orchid Box Card from Simply Crafty SVGS.

This is a quick and easy card to cut and assemble.  Sandy’s version is beautiful in purple, but I made just a few little changes to make it more like the lovely white orchids that I have flowing on my window sill today!

Materials I Used:
White Extra Heavyweight Parchment Vellum 220 gsm (about 150 lb.)
Silver Metallic Card
Heavyweight White Glimmer Card
Copic /Alcohol Markers
Geometric Embossing Folder and Embossing Machine
Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive
Dimensional Adhesive Pads
Tonic Ball Embossing Tools

Print & Cut

I used the Print & Cut facility on my Silhouette Cameo to make green coloured stems, leaves and buds, and cut them from thick parchment vellum (less translucent than regular vellum).  The secret to perfect print and cut is to add a non-cut margin of colour around the printed shapes, printer’s call this a bleed. You’ll find more Print & Cut projects here.

 

Adding Dimension to Leaves and Stems

I shaped the buds with a ball embossing tool and layered them onto the stem using a triangular-shaped piece of dimensional foam between.  I blended some green alcohol marker around the edges of the leaves and added some stripes along the length before attaching to the base with more dimensional foam to open the slit in each leaf.

Colouring and Shaping Orchid Flowers

The flower parts were also cut from parchment vellum with no colour added (they fit on the same sheet as the Print & Cut stems and leaves). The orchid flower centres were coloured with the Copic marker colours shown in the photo. A Google image search on orchid flowers will provide a host of colouring guides.

 

The petals, sepals and centres were shaped with the ball tools on a soft surface (I used an old fabric mouse mat).

 

The individual flowers were assembled from the back forward using strong liquid adhesive. I used the ball tool to hold the parts together until the adhesive had stuck.

 

Card Assembly

The card base pieces were cut from white cardstock and the pot and panels from metallic silver card. The pot and panels were embossed using an embossing folder. The card assembly was very straightforward, following the PDF instructions included with the SVG file.

The finished card will fold flat to fit into regular envelope. It makes a lovely card suitable for so many different occasions.

Bye for now,
