It seems these card in a box projects are all the rage. Everywhere I look, crafters are doing some amazing stuff with them. I am not normally one to follow the crowd, but a friend told me I could get a box card file for free. So why not try this craze out!
It just so happens that Ken’s Kreations made the basic box in SVG and Studio format for you to embellish anyway you like. Well, I like Easter projects right now. Wouldn’t an adorable chickie scene be so precious? OK, I know the eggs in back are super big compared to the basket. Just pretend the basket is in the next county. Hmmm, k?
Likewise, what rolling eggs would be complete without a little Trendy Twine grass. Makes such a cute effect. I think the bunny needs to stop by with the lawn mower soon.
Another great thing about this kind of card is you have lots of space to play with if you so desire. I used the Easter Egg Fun by Prettygrafikdesign. There are so many cute graphics in this set, it was hard to choose which ones to use. Aren’t those chicks and bunny adorable. I love Sarah’s designs. They are almost always the first I go to when designing printables for my store. Keep a lookout at Etsy, Sarah also has the best sales pretty regularly.
A little more twine to hold the tiny banner in place. Watermelon Taffy is the quintessential Spring twine. It makes me happy just looking at it.
Finally, we come to the painting zone. I added the shadow layer for easier cutting on him, white doesn’t trace very well in cutting software. I did add in the tulips behind the bunny to create a little scene too. Love the soft colors of the Springtime collection by Echo Park Paper. It goes together with the graphics perfectly.
I really like this card in a box. It is something I can see me making for different occasions. I like that it folds flat for mailing even though it needs a pretty big envelope. I sent this card off a few days ago and forgot to measure the size I used. Sorry about that. If you don’t have any large envelopes laying around, you can always modify the file to make it a little smaller. Although you will have less room for decorations obviously.Here’s what I used: Card in a Box SVG – Ken’s Kreations Easter Egg Fun – Prettygrafikdesign Limeade & Watermelon Taffy twine – Trendy Twine Springtime collection – Echo Park Paper Easter Greetings – My Thoughts Exactly stamps
