Hanami Garden Box Birthday Card

Hi all

Every now and again a collection comes along that you think.. ‘Wow! That is a really special collection’ and the new Hanami Garden is one of those. so today I’m pleased to be bringing you this box card made using this stunning oriental themed range.

Full CardTo begin with I used this tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers  for the base using Tomato Weave Kaisercard. Having made the box  I then took my 12′ collection pack and selected the Kireina sheet and cut to size. I then mounted these on Licorice Kaisercard and ended up with this.

Plain cardI then took the co-ordinating Mini Designer Bamboo Stencil and stamped through it onto a sheet of vellum, surrounding it with a frame, cut with a craft knife. I then heat embossed it with black sparkly embossing powder and centred it on the back panel.

Screen at backI then used several stickers from the sticker sheet, and die cuts from the collectable pack and the 6.5″ paper pad using strips of Acetate to adhere to the strips of card inside the box. I also chose several die cuts to decorate the outside flaps and used a little sisal to give extra dimension under the central flap dies.

From the topThe beauty of this box card is that it also fold flat for posting!

closedcardI do hope you’ve liked this little tutorial and I hope it inspires you to have a go at something a little different! One thing is for certain, if you buy this beautiful collection you won’t be disappointed! It really is versatile with it’s red, pink, black and gold there is something in there for everyone.
