Make It Crafty Facebook challenge

Hello all!
Back showing a card with a difference today - it's a 3D card in a box and it's for the current challenge over at the Make it Crafty Facebook group.  There are plenty of directions and tutorials out there on how to make this but I took the easy route and purchased the template from the Silhouette store - mainly because I liked the shaped edges of the box flaps!
    I coloured Pipi Petal Sprite from the MIC store using my Copics and chose to go for a very bright colour combo in hopes of fooling myself that Spring is here already!  Bit hard to believe when there's still snow around from early January :(    Anyway, I had used the Print and Cut feature on my Sihouette Cameo to cut out Pipi, leaving an edge around her and as this was going to be a 3D card, I cut another outline only (no printed image) so I could stick that to the back of the coloured image and you wouldn't see the bleed through from the Copics.   I also used my Cameo to cut the flower embellishments and the sentiment, making it a very Cameo-involved project!


    It's a little bit fiddly putting the box card together but the beauty of this design is that it folds relatively flat for posting as you can see in the next snap - 


                        Here's a view from above so you can see how the image and sentiment are attached to different inserts, giving the card depth - 


                     I would like to enter this into the challenges at 613 Avenue Create, Corrosive Challenges, Artistic Inspirations, Created with Love, Creative Cutting, Marker Pop, Simon Says Wednesday and Silhouette America.

        Finishing off with one more snap - a close up of Pipi.   Thanks for stopping by !
