"Inspired by" and it actually means something or someone who has inspired your creation, Im inspired by the beautiful box cards that so many of you have made and the one person that really inspires me is Rach of papercraftsbyrach.blogspot, she created a stunning one recently and I just knew I had to give it a try and this is the result.
Ive used this sweet image of "My best Friend" and printed her onto white card and I used my copic pens to colour her, after which I used Nestabilite Die No.8 to cut her out then drew around the die to create the mount for it. The sentiment is one of the Whimsey ones, and Ive printed it and mounted it in the same way as the image.
The main box card is a 6"x 6" design but with extra for the punched edges, its better to use the instructions in the tutorial to create it rather than me writing it out, but I will say that I used for the outside part two papers from Donna's Bearlymine "Spring Blossoms" papers, the top one is a flower pattern and the bottom a striped one, across the middle I have laid a piece of lace on top of which I also put a long satin ribbon so that I am able to tie it up.
I then positioned my mounted image on top of this, and created a flower from some of the flowers I found in my stash, I rolled them up and stuck them on top of one large one and then positioned it at the bottom on the left hand side. In the inside of the box I printed a verse that you can see on the second photo, this was done before I put the box surroundings onto it.
I do so hope that you like what you see and that you will pop over to The Paper Shelter Challenge blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented team have created for you, and Im sure with their inspiration you will want to take part in this weeks challenge also.
