Strawberry basket box card

I haven't used my Eclips machine in awhile, so I took it out the other day to make some box cards. I bought a file from SVG Cuts a couple weeks ago. Here's the strawberry basket box card that I made. I love how it folds flat so you can mail it.  
The hardest part was trying to find paper to match all the colors that I wanted to use. These papers are from Kaisercraft.
These are all the pieces that I cut to assemble the card. It looks like a lot but it really isn't since the machine is cutting it out for you.
 This is the box part of the card.
And here are all the inner pieces with the strawberries and flowers glued to it. The machine even cuts the numbers on the pieces so you know what order to put it together.
I stuck yellow gemstones in the center of the flowers. And here's the finished card!
This week was a little tough. My stepmother had been in and out of the hospital since March when she went into a diabetic coma. In April, she suffered a massive stroke and her right side of her body was paralyzed and she lost her vision in her right eye. Well, the doctor sent her home since there was nothing more that they could do for her. She lived for 2 weeks and passed away on Wednesday which is the same date that my dad passed away 5 years ago. Weird huh?
I have another box card that I made yesterday and will post it later so hope you stop by the blog again. Have a great weekend!!!

Sorry to hear about your recent loss. Please give my condolences to your husband as well. Your strawberry basket box card is amazing. I need to do more with my machine. I've been neglecting it and probably forgot how to use it. It's inspiring to see what I could be doing with it. Thanks! P.S. I enjoyed your appearances on the Joy of Crafting.

Great little boxed card Cheryl. You make it look & sound quite easy to cut & put together & now I'm sure that's going to be my next purchase. I have a Silhouette Cameo & these SVG files are all new to be & I am pretty computer challenged when it comes to figuring these things out. LOVE the look of these cards tho so am going to give it a try.
Great paper choice & beautiful creation.

Sorry about your loss Cheryl. May she rest in heaven with your dad.

Love the cute box card!! I don't have one of those fancy machines so waiting for the right time and price to do so. This turned out really cute!
Have a great week!

My deepest condolences to you, Cheryl, on the loss of your stepmom. It's always sad when someone passes. How coincidental that she passed on the same date as Dad 5 years ago. Love your adorable box card.
