The next challenge was to make a shaped card, I will have to say I don't make many different shaped cards but usually try to do something different for my sisters card. I had made a box card for my other sister a few years back but with hers I had to measure everything out and score and cut it all myself. This time I was able to use a die I had bought from Spellbinders when they were having their half off dies sale a while back. The die comes with one panel die so you have to cut it 4 times to get your box, but the tabs and score lines are in the die :) Then I cut them all again with pattern paper to decorate the box, cutting them apart to fit in the right squares, so it may take the same amount of time to make this but so much easier not having to think of where to cut and score.
The scalloped borders were also dies that came with the set. I had done all flowers on my other sisters card, so this time I had decided to go with a little scene, this sister has cats so I added one to the scene. As you can see the tree goes above the box a bit so I did have to put it in a bigger envelope but I just loved the way it looked taller than the card.
