Today I made this little red Vespa box card for a scooter-driving dear one’s birthday. The files came from Lori Whitlock’s web store.
I made a few alterations in addition to switching up the colors a bit: I attached the fenders with adhesive foam to add dimension, embossed the basket (and added that to the back with a flower side, too), used enamel dots for the flower centers instead of paper, and added a “bumper sticker” enamel heart to the back fender.
I also made my own sides, because the svg files didn’t play nice with my Cricut for scoring that one piece and the files didn’t come with any instructions for assembly. Luckily, I’ve made quite a few box cards so figuring out how to wing it wasn’t too hard. There may be a tutorial on the website, I didn’t look since I was already deep into the project.
The files did not include an envelope which I think is standard for this company, but as in the past I dug through all my other box card files and found an envelope that would work!
One of the coolest things about box cards is how they collapst to fit into their envelopes, so it just wouldn’t feel finished if I didn’t have an envelope made just for this card!
