Trio of love (Box Cards)

                      This post contains affiliate links I may be compensated for.                               

I have more box cards for you.   A set of three I made for Valentines. I just love box cards.  I use Lori Whitlock All Occasions Box Cards (cut with my Cricut Explore) as a base for the card box, but always "add to" with embellishments and often completely  re-design the "guts" of the card. However, Lori Whitlock has some simple cute cards all on thier own.   With the cards I have for you today I kept some of the envelopes but added vintage clip art, lots more hearts and a Valentine sentiments for a complete new look.

On to my darling trio...Aren't they so sweet?!

Here you can see the dainty pink rose ribbon and  white tulle I used to accenting the sweet little girl

I did some hand painting on this one with red and green acrylic on the hearts and leaves; as well as glitter gel roller to accent the bow, hearts and eyes.  Also added Spectrum Noir crystal clear glitter brush to the larger heart -t hard to see in this photo

A tiny note slips out of the envelope

I added bright specks to her eyes with my glitter gel roller

Love the dimension of box cards!   REMEMBER: Box cards fold flat for mailing
