final card

I have another pretty card that could be used for a wedding, an anniversary, or just a special greeting. You can add your own sentiment or leave it as is. There are options for adding 3 dimensions to this card by lifting up some of the cutting. I have also added gems to finish the card off.

The paper I used was Basis White Card Stock for the card. Basis White is so versatile. I love it for the foundation of most of my card making. It cuts and scores beautifully.

At 80#, I choose to set my Cricut Maker at a card stock setting of 100# which works well even for small detailed cuts. Don’t forget to set the red line to score before sending the file to cut.

The addition of the gems to the centers isn’t necessary but a nice option. If you don’t want to use your personal cutter for the smaller square piece, I cut mine on a paper trimmer to 3″ x 3″. The finished card is 4″ x 6″.

This view shows the detail of the 3-D effect of the lifting on the front of the card. I like the dimension gained as well as the see-through element of the cut-away pieces.

And here is a close-up view of the finished card with the lifting finished and the gems in place. I am wondering what coloring option and details you will use, please comment below.

With Easter right around the corner, why not make this cute bunny box. What a cute way to give a treat. Both young and old will get a kick out of it. You can make them in different sizes and colors. Personalize them and they make a great place setting name tag.

I used Stardream Metallic Card Stock in Crystal for the box and Astrobright in Pulsar Pink for the ears and nose. CutCardStock’s Stardream line is one of my favorite card stocks with a bit of metallic, it has a great look.

I cut the SVG file out on a Cricut Maker. Placing two different pieces of card stock on the mat, I adjusted the file in Design Space. This made it easier to cut once instead of twice.

As a reminder when cutting, set the red lines to score and load your scoring tool before setting the file to cut. The materials are minimal for this project making it so easy to make. It would be fun to get the kids involved.

I cut the whisker with scissors from a scrap of black and chose to draw in the eyes instead of cutting them out.

The video tutorial below shows how to easily put the pieces together.

Snowflake Box :: Free SVG

Make this festive snowflake box for your holiday gift giving with the free SVG file.

snowflake box

Just in time for your holiday gift-giving is this free SVG file to make a Snowflake Box. Or if you need a plain box, just remove the design element and you have a standard square box template. The great thing about this box design is that you can make it and then store it flat until you need it.

I used Habanero cardstock.

cricut maker

I cut the file on a Cricut Maker at a setting of 100#. The cardstock is 80# cover weight but cuts really well at a slightly larger setting.

The SVG file comes with cut and score lines. You will need to set the lines to score before cutting. The file comes with a square shape to insert into the top of the box. However, I just freehand cut mine to save time. I suggest using wet glue to insert the top piece as well as the seal on the side of the box. It tends to hold better than other options.

open box

Here you can see the box together and open ready for the gift to be placed inside. You really don’t need anything additional. The box will hold itself close and since there is a decoration on the box, no ribbon is needed either.

Above is a close-up of the snowflake decoration on the top of the box. I think adding some decorative gems to the circles could make this extra special. You might also consider using acetate or vellum instead of cardstock for the insert.

As a part of the CutCardStock design team, I am sharing this SVG file for a lace-top envelope. The entire post can be found on the CutCardStock site. The SVG file is linked at the bottom of this post.

Cricut Maker

I cut the lace envelope on a Cricut Maker. The card stock was 80# and I used a setting of 100#. It cut beautifully with no weeding needed. The file is designed to be used with a 4″ x 6″ card.
