Carta Bella Farmhouse Market Slimline Gift Box Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon
Hello, Friends! The colors of this Carta Bella Farmhouse Market Slimline Gift Box Card transport me straight into a country springtime! The month of February has been brutally cold and downright nasty over most of the US. So I thought we might all need some cheery colors and images to warm up our crafty mojo!
You’ve probably noticed that I’m a huge fan of this 8 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ slimline box style card design. I shared a tutorial for the basic card design HERE. And if you tune in to this week’s Throwback Thursday I’ll be sharing a really sweet recipe where I’ve altered the base just a little. This one is dolled up with pretty pastel ribbons from the RRR February Ribbon Club Assortment. The ribbon makes a great border, too! Just layer the 3/8″ pink gingham over the 5/8″ Pink Diamond Satin and attach to the card base with Scor-Tape.
I would love to have a set of these farmhouse style canisters in my kitchen, how about you? Flanked by blooming roses, machine stitching and little keys, you can almost smell their delicate fragrance. A bit of iridescent metallic string adds a touch of glam to the card design.
A Peek Inside
If you guessed that there would be a box pocket inside this Farmhouse Market Slimline Gift Box Card, then you would be correct! I also added a little pocket on the top. My paper was not wide enough to span the width of the card. Easy solution? Adhere just 3 sides of the rose/woodgrain pattern on the left to form a pocket. This solves the problem nicely, and looks like a deliberate design choice instead of a “fix.”
It’s a tea party for one, friends! All dressed up in pretty paper scraps and tied with a bit of ribbon, this card is ready to party!
Is it still bitterly cold where you are? We’ve had nothing but rain for days and days, but as I write this post on Saturday afternoon, the sun is blazing in a bright blue sky. It’s pretty doggone chilly…but at least we have sunshine!
