Valentine Box Card Tutorial By Guest DT Pavitra

Bonjour Crafters,
A very lovely Welcome and a warm Good Morning in this cold winter.

Today in our Teaching and Learning Program, we have Guest DT Pavitra with her stunning Valentine box card, so friends get ready to learn this and surprise your loved one this Valentine.


Over to you Pavitra,

Hello my dear friends!

I'm Pavitra and today I will be sharing a box card with you all. Valentine is approaching in the coming month and I choose the theme of love for my project...

So let’s get startd

For the base of the box I used white cardstock (12 by 12 inch) and scored it at 4 and 8 inch both horizontally and vertically.


Cut out the squares (4 x 4inch) from all the four sides as shown in below picture.


In order to make it more sturdy I layered red cardstock (3 ¾ by 3 ¾ inch) on the base white cardstock (4 inch by 4 inch) with the help of tacky glue.


Next I pasted the pattern paper (3 ½ by 3 ½ inch) on all the sides front and back both.

For the top of the box I score 6 ¼ by 6 ¼ white card stock at 1 inch – 4 ¼ inch – 1 inch both vertically and horizontally as shown in below picture.


After that I cut the sides and pasted the ends with glue as shown in below picture.



In the centre of the box I thought of imitating a cake so for that I made three squares of size –

3 X 3 inch

2 x 2 inch

1 x 1 inch

And stack on top of each other, and once dried properly centred it on the base of card as shown in below picture.



For the closer of the box I used a metallic lock and also placed metallic corners on all the four sides with brads. On the top of the box I added a frame, bottles and a clock.



On the back side of the box I added a metal embellishment and a sentiment.


Here’s the box after all the metal embellishments are placed.


Nothing can emotes, love better than flowers and that’s why to finish my project I created handmade flowers. I first die-cut the Papericious sigma cardstock with spellbinder die and then colored the petals with carnation red archival color from inside to outside with the help of a dauber as shown in below picture. For one medium flower I used 2 small, 2 medium and 3 large petals.


I embossed the petals from outside to inside, cupping the petals towards center as shown in below picture.


After that I inserted pollen in the center of the petal and cupped the petals in the form of a bud as shown in below picture. For the bud I used two small petals.

Next I inverted the third layer of petal on a foam pad and shaped it with clay tool as shown in below picture and pasted it on the bud with the help of tacky glue.



Added  the remaining layers of the petals in the same way to finish my flower. For the filler flowers I used archival ink cobalt and archival ink saffron, both the flowers are also embossed in the same way from outside to inside, cupping the petals towards center. For some shine and sparkle I applied distress clear rock candy glitter on the flowers

For the leaves I used distress ink peeled paint and pine needle. For the top of the cake I used papericious heart chippie cut-out and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.


Finally I layered my flowers and leaves with silicon glue and here is the finished project.
