One more box card, this time it's loosely based on the city of Chicago skyline
and the oh-so-fun moving card by Amber Kemp-Gerstel guesting at CASE Study this week.
Taking the concept of using the heart to mark where you're going, this card is meant to send love to someone living in ... you guessed it ... the city. I was fortunate to find the word "love" in the book page on the tallest building (the
Sears Willis Tower) so that's where I put the heart. What luck!
I chose book paper because I thought the letters could pass for tiny windows on the skyscrapers, in an abstract sort of way. Experimenting with building tops, I made the pointed one on the left, but kept the flaps loose so it could fold flat. Later I figured out I could make the
Sears Willis tower by putting narrower boxes inside the wider ones. It didn't dawn on me to use the inside space of the box until now. Rats.
Here's a better view of the dimension. There is a second-layer building at the very left end. The background uses Lawn Fawn Interlocking Backdrops ... the mini hexies are layered on the tweed. Sentiment is from Lawn Fawn You've Got Mail.
Like the other recent cards in this unofficial 3D box card series (tiles, bee hexies, notebook paper, antique bottles, charts, and Mehndi lantern), the card folds flat for mailing and storage.
Well I think this is the end of the box cards, at least for now. I know, you all can breathe a sigh of relief! Time to move on to something new. Thanks so much for your comments : )
Thanks for looking!
