Amazing Paper Grace Summer Berries Box Card

Amazing Paper Grace Guest Designer Spot: Stamperia Provence Summer Berries Box Card

Hello, Friends!  Aaaaah, summer!  Today’s Guest Designer Post for Amazing Paper Grace is a Summer Berries Box Card.  Made with Spellbinder’s  APG Vintage Treasures Cannetille Rectangle Dies and Stamperia Provence  and Lilac Flowers papers, it as sweet and refreshing as a bowl of summer berrries with whipped cream on top.

Stamperia Provence Summer Berries Box Card: How I Made It

This box style card looks complicated, but the cover comes together in a snap, thanks to these wonderful dies!  Here’s how I made it:

  • First, cut a 12″ x 6″ panel of cream cardstock.
  • Next, score on the long side at 2 3/4″ , 5 1/2″ and 6.
  • Fold to form a little booklet with a 1/2″ spine on the left.
  • Then fold the front cover back at the 2 3/4″ score line.
  • Line all the panels with Stamperia Provence Paper.
  • Die cut the Cannetille Rectangle from Whip Cream Cardstock.
  • Now use just the outer frame of the die to cut out a panel of the Provence paper and adhere behind the die cut layers.  Leave the center open.

The floral cluster is made with a mix of purple flowers and berries that I had in my stash.  Tie it all together with some Elderberry Seam Binding Ribbon and a pretty little button.

Ooh la la!  Look at all the lovely papers tucked inside this pretty card!  I’ve created a box pocket to hold some lovely treats.  You can find a tutorial for that HERE.

Dress up the little gift packages inside the pocket with the center medallion from the Cannetille Rectangle Dies, a button and a half pearl.   You can write a note on the back of the journal card, too.  I’ve wrapped up a little package of British Tea Cream Cookies and a honey stick with papers from the collection.  Then I tucked in a color matched tea bag and one of my precious vintage Italian Demitasse spoons to complete the gift package. This is such a pretty way to present a gift.

I’m having such fun playing with these Vintage Treasures Dies!  They fit my style to a “T”.  Did I share some tips, tricks and ideas that you can use in your own crafty adventures today?  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.
