Fresh Fruit in a Crate Card for SUO #151

Hi there and welcome to addINKtive designs!


I am so excited about sharing my latest 'card in a box' style card; it's a crate full of fresh fruit inspired by the Fruit Stand Suite on page 148 of the new SU Catalogue -


When I first clapped eyes on those cute 3D paper crates, I was itching to tweak the design a little and make a card instead. With that idea in mind and having already eyed off the beautiful Pool Party 'wood grain' sheets of DSP from the gorgeous, NEW, Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack, the combination was inevitable!

My Favourite New Papers - Serene Scenery DSP

It just so happens that the latest challenge at Stampin' Up! Only Challenges is all about making a project using your favourite new papers.

   

After playing with my new Fresh Fruit Stamps, I can pretty much guarantee that they will see a lot of ink over the coming months; love how the stamps 'shade' and the fact that they are made from photopolymer which makes the two-step (or more) stamping process a breeze.

 

This crate card is like your regular 'card in a box' style card and folds flat for posting.  However, the finished measurements are a tad too wide for a standard C6 (card) envelope, so a custom made one using the Envelope Punch Board would be the way to go.

This card will be making its way to a very special lady, our CEO of Christian Education National (Australia), Michelle, who flew down to Tassie last week to help celebrate our official opening of the Junior Hub (4 new primary classrooms).




A PDF tutorial which can be used for stamp classes will be available very soon; in the meantime, here's a mini photo tutorial to assist you with the measurements if you would like to construct one for yourself -
