From My Heart Box Card

I usually go for simple cards - that's what I like the best and I don't like fussing with it - but this type of card is so unique and fun, I just had to give it a try!  At the Leadership Conference in January, attending demonstrators were shown how to make this box card.  I wasn't able to go, but my recruit Benedicte was kind enough to share it with our group.  It also showcases the chalkboard technique, which everyone is crazy about right now!  I offered this card at my April Camp Wannastamp.  The recipe is below.  All supplies used and shown are from Stampin' Up!


Paper:  Baja Breeze - 10-1/4 X 8-1/2; score at 2-1/8, 3-5/8, 6-5/8 and 8-1/8 on the 10-1/4" side.  Score at 1-1/2 and 7 on the 8-1/2" side.  On the 10-1/4" side, score diagonally at 5-1/8 until it intersects with the first score line - flip the card stock over and score again diagonally at 5-1/8.  This needs to be done on both sides of the card.  Basic Black - 5-1/4 X 2-3/4 (for the inside greeting); Baja Breeze - 5-1/4 X 1-7/8 (for the embossed edges); Baja Breeze - 10 X 1-1/4 (for the belly band); Basic Black - 4 X 2-3/4 (for the oval greeting); Rose Red scrap (for the heart)
Stamps:  From My Heart
Inks:  Versamark; White Craft Ink
Miscellaneous:  Simply Scored Scoring Tool with Diagonal Plate; Paper Snips; Bone Folder; Sticky Strip; SNAIL Adhesive; White Embossing Powder; Heat Tool; Sponge Dauber; Embossing Buddy; Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder; Big Shot Machine; Ovals Collection Framelits; Stampin' Dimensionals; 2-Way Glue Pen; Owl Builder Punch; Stamp-a-ma-jig
