As I am at the moment up to my elbows in a wedding, & one of the things I will be sorting this week is pillow boxes I thought why not create one digitally for the challenge.
Here is my pillow box;
I created it in Serif Craft Artist using one of the templates in the software. I added my own background & then from various kits chose a bouquet of flowers & a sentiment.
After cutting out & embossing the fold lines of the pillow I encouraged it into the shape & stuck down the flaps to keep the shape. I then cut out the bouquet the colour of which I had altered to go with the background paper. I left just a very narrow white margin around it & took away as much of the white card between flowers as I could. The sentiment I added to a shape which I coloured to match then cut it out punched a hole & added the appropriate colour ribbon.
Here is a picture of the box template before I cut it out, with my background paper on it;
The background paper for the template was a piece of pinky lilac that was part of one of the digi kits. The floral pattern was from a card I had made using a new technique I had learnt thanks to one of the ladies in the Serif Craft Artist Users Group. My next post will be to show that card - it uses a faux laser die cut technique.
