Today I wanted to share with you my very first video and my first Dia de los Muertos (day of the dead) box card for this year. I really had fun putting this box card together, wait I say that about all my box cards but it is true. Now this video on the other hand, well that was very challenging for me, I didn’t write out a script or prepare ahead of time I just winged the whole thing, because I as so excited to share this with you. Please be patient with me and with practice I will get better at these videos, so don’t jump ship just yet.
Well here is the video, please comment below and let me know what you think. Enjoy!
I am also including some still pictures for you to reference.
This is the outside view of the box card with the lid on.
This is the inside view of the card as soon as you take off the lid. The flaps on this layer can be used to put picture on this flower side and on the back side of the flap you can write a message or place more pictures.
This is the second layer and this layer has three pockets with tags and one flap that has a tie down closure.
This is the third layer. I think this layer is the most serene and pretty layer because of the blue background, the white lacy doilies and the gold medallion doilies on each flap. Plus I love the idea of this being the alter portion of the card, it just fits. You definitely don’t have to use this as an alter area, pictures would look really good with these pretty backgrounds and would display nicely set out on a table just like this.
Well, I hope that you enjoyed this video and the pictures, please leave a comment below and let me know what you think. If you have any questions about this card or the items used please contact me I would love to assist you and your creativity any way I can.
Have a great week!
