Nativity Paperscape Box Card
This large box card (9 3/4 x 8 1/8 inches when flattened) was made from a file called Nativity Paperscape Box Card SVG by Dreaming Tree (3dsvg.com) which is the company founded in 2015 by Leo Kowal (former co-founder of svgcuts). They offer svg files (that can be cut with an electronic die cutting machine) for a lot of amazing projects with tutorials to make assembly a breeze.
Like most box cards, it has a box-like frame with several panels layered inside. This one is a little different in that it is more rectangular than square and that all the panels are completely inside the box and do not extend over the top. As I mentioned above, this is a pretty large card. An envelope made to fit this card is included with the file. The card is 3 dimensional when opened and folds flat for storage or for mailing.
A greeting and sentiment can be stamped, printed, or written on the back. There is a place cut out in the back to place a battery operated tea light if desired. The photo above has a white light behind it. Below is a photo of the card with no light added:
And here is another photo of the card in the dark with a blue tea light:
So many ways to display it!!
I used basic white card stock for the base and panels. The printed card stock is called Holly Berries from the Holly Jolly collection by My Mind’s Eye. The background panel is Moonlit Fog card stock by Gina K Designs.
What I love about this project is that is can be a card or a decoration – or both!
Thanks for checking out my card project!
