A2 Slanted Top Card Box Set


Here's another A2 sized (5 1/2" x 4 1/4") card box, once again inspired by a square one done by the fabulous Sandi MacIver.  You can see the first box I made like this with a slanted top, but for 3x3 sized cards here

I made this A2 slanted top card box a while before Christmas, but I finally found some time today to make my cards, completing my set.  And again I would like to thank Sandi for her graciousness in allowing me to run with her idea of the slanted top box to create templates of my own.  She's a sweetheart!  Be sure to visit her inspiring blog and leave her some love!









Eventually I will have this box template available as a bonus with purchase of a handmade card.  I'll let you all know when it is ready (as well as when the 3x3 Slant Top Box template is ready, too).

If I don't get these templates completed before the middle of the month, it might be awhile before I can tackle them, as I will have to begin the huge task of priming and painting the interior of our new home.  So please be patient.  It will get done... ;)

I love the bright colours in this set!  They're just so cheery!  Actually, they are very familiar, too.  I just realized that I used these very colours in my last Humble Artists Swap cards...  ;)

Until next time...

Happy creating!  :)
