1 card style - 2 cards (part 1).

I've recently been looking through old craft magazines for some quilling designs for a card I wanted to make. I came across a tutorial for some card styles and liked the look of one they called a 'box' card. I would call it a 'box frame' card as it provides a frame for a central image. As the days are rushing by I needed to make another card for the challenge at Debbees CDs DT Delights blog before it closes on 25th March. So I decided to have a go at the box card. Deb's provides free papers to download and I used the card topper/decoupage base. I cut the frame from around the topper and used it on the border of the card. The middle of the topper was then used as a central image. I resized the topper using MCS to make a square as it was initially a rectangle. I then went to town with peel off borders and corners and pink pearls!
And the card from the side showing the depth of the 'box'.
I was very pleased with how the card turned out and I knew the style would suit the quilling I was thinking of doing....... but you'll have to wait until tomorrow to see that card LOL! It's my last week as a Guest Designer for the CD Sunday Challenge Blog and the card is for the new theme from Sunday.
