3x3 Summer Treat Cards with Box

We know you loved our July Releases and all the fun summer ideas you now have for them...but we thought we'd show you one more round of creative projects today with our favorites, because that's always so fun for us!  Before I share my project with you, I want to take a minute to let you know that the Designer Focus is on Heather this week over on the Flourishes Blog.  CASE one of her cards, link it over at the Flourishes Blog, and you'll be entered to win a Flourishes Goodie Bag filled with stamps and goodies from the store.


For this week's Timeless Tuesday, Jenny challenged everyone to make mini-cards: (3) 3 x 3's.  I LOVE making small cards so I couldn't wait to make mine.  Unfortunately I didn't have time earlier in the week, so I thought I'd share the mini's I made, using Pinwheels and Popsicles, with you here, along with a coordinating box.

I just stamped the images with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, colored them with Copics and added a bit of sparkle with some glitter and my "go to" Quickie Glue Pen.  The background here is just Washi Tape.

More Copic coloring, glitter and Washi Tape.  :)

I framed the cake here a bit differently.  It's a larger image so it took up more of the card.

See how perfectly the cards fit inside?

For the box top, I dicut a circle and then put a square on the inside and embossed it to get the scored edges for the perfect rounded flaps on each side.  I then embossed the circle using an embossing folder, and used some card stock tabs (with Scor-Tape on them) to adhere the sides since it was diecut it didn't have any tabs to adhere the sides together.  The base is just your standard box base.

For the flower top, I just took my Spellbinders Sunflower Set 2 dies and diecut 3 of each of the two sizes, curled the leaves a bit and added a black and yellow button.

That's finally it for today's project.  I hope you were able to stick with this long post.
