Fair is Fair

Hello everyone!  Our spring fair is happening right now which isn't as big as our fair in the fall but one can still purchase delicious corn dogs and deep fried Twinkies!  I chose to make a boxcard this week using a design from the "Summer Box Card" collection from SVGcuts.

 Because a carnival has lights and sparkle I had fun using embellishments from eyelet outlet.  I added the self adhesive gold enamel stars, then used the pink sticky back jewels to the tent along with pink bling strips along the bottom edge.  The Ferris wheel actually turns as I used a cream pearl brad in the center which allows the wheel to rotate. I embellished the spokes of the wheel using purple jewel bling strips and then clear jewel bling for the cars.  The final layer on the box card is the game booth which I outlined with the green pearl bling strips.  At these carnival game booths you have a chance to win a prize.  I didn't have any more teddy bear brads or a rubber ducky brad  as any one of those designs would have been so cute but I used a  popcorn brad instead which looks just as cute.

 If you haven't tried a box card yet I would encourage you to try it.  You will be surprised just how easy it is to make and they fold flat to mail in an envelope and they make such an impression when they are received.  Adding bling and brads from eyelet outlet makes it even more special!  Thanks for coming to the fair today, I hope you had fun!
