Doodlebug Design | Simply Spring Watering Can Box Card

Need a card to send to someone for a special occasion, or maybe just to brighten their day?  I created this watering can box card for Doodlebug Design, and it would be perfect for a number of different occasions including Easter, Mother's Day, Birthdays, Spring or just because!  Take a peek...

This box card is based on the Watering Can from the Simply Spring Collection.  I used a combination of papers from the Love Notes, Petite Prints and Spring Things Collections to piece it together then added a sentiment to the tag using the new All Occasion Doodle Stamps.  These stamps are just awesome, there is a sentiment for almost any occasion!  I finished the card with some sprinkles for my flower centers!

I created an SVG file for this card so you can make and send your very own!  It is available exclusively in the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop here.  Following is a quick assembly tutorial ...

1) Start by cutting the pieces.  Add the decorative panels to the box card base and add the flower pieces to the insert.
2) Glue the two pieces of the handle together.  Do not add adhesive to the tabs on either end.  Repeat with the spout pieces.
3 & 4) Insert the handle into the two slots on the card base.  Turn over and fold "open" the tabs.  Glue the tabs to the inside of the box.  Repeat process with the Spout.

5)  Glue the box into shape, tab goes on the inside of the box.
6)  Add adhesive to the tabs of the insert.  Fold them back.
7)  Slide the Insert into the box, align the tabs with the back of the box and press the tabs to the sides to adhere.

All that is left is to pick your sentiment for the tag that is included with the card and tie it around the watering can!

I'm sure there are many folks who would just love to receive a card in these days of social distancing, and this would certainly bring a smile to the recipient's face!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design | Kitten in a Cup

If you're a cat lover like me, you probably fell in love with the Doodlebug Design Kitten Smitten Collection from a few years ago.  I'm happy to "revisit" that collection often (in fact I may be hoarding some of it in my stash!)   The same goes for the Kitten Smitten Cut files.  I played with the cut files recently and designed this fun box card... a kitten in a teacup.. could it be any cuter?

The tea bag tag is blank in the card so I decided to use two stamps from the the new Love You Stamp set to add a sentiment.

If you haven't seen the new Occasions Stamp Sets, you're in for a treat!  There are SO many different sentiments in all sizes and fonts... you can mix and match with all of the Doodlebug Stamp sets to make a card for any occasion!

My card even folds flat to fit in a 5x7 envelope.

I created an SVG file for this card and it is available exclusively in the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop here.

Here is a quick assembly tutorial for the card...

1)  Start by cutting the pieces of the card.  Stamp a sentiment on the tag if desired.
2)  Glue the cat face onto the insert piece.  The black piece goes behind the face to show through the eyes and mouth.  Add the hearts and paws to the cup.  I used some foam tape behind the paws to give them some dimension.  Fold the "box" into shape and glue.
3)  Add the cup front and back to the box.  Fold the tabs on the kitty insert and add adhesive to the tabs.
4)  Slide the kitty insert into the box.  It should be flush with the bottom of the card.  Press the tabs to the sides of the box to adhere.

All that's left is to send the card off to your favorite crazy cat lady (or man....)!

That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design | Doodle-Stamped Desk Calendar

Every year I try to make a cute little desk calendar.  Of course they always feature Doodlebug goodies!  This year I decided to make one using some of the many fun Doodlebug Stamp Sets!  Of course I started late this year, so my calendar starts with February and goes though January of next year... but that works for me!  Take a peek...

I created a 4x6 PDF of the months and printed them on good quality paper for stamping.  ( I use Neenah paper )  I stamped each month with a feature image from the various Doodlebug Stamps and to some I added additional, small stamped images.  I backed the calendars on papers from a few different 6x6 Doodlebug Paper Pads.  The clip frame is from Michaels.  Here are different months...

It looks so cute on my desk!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Lori Whitlock | Rainbow Box

I have another rainbow project that I created for Lori Whitlock today!  This fun Rainbow Box (SVG, Silhouette) is the perfect way to package up a little something for someone special!  Take a peek...

It could be used as a table decoration for a St. Patrick's Day or Spring themed party!  It would also make a super cute gift set paired with the Rainbow Box Card in my last post.  I pieced this one together using some petite prints from Doodlebug Design and a fun little heart shaped sprinkle from Doodlebug's Love Notes Collection.  So bright and cheery!  That's it for me to day, thanks for stopping by to peek!
