Echo Park Paper: Down on the Farm Barn Gift Box

Hello! I had so much fun creating this Barn Gift Box using the Echo Park Paper Down On the Farm collection I’m sharing with you today. Let me tell you how I created it!

I found this adorable cut file online and was inspired to recreate a similar look using cut files that I already owned. (Check the bottom of this post for the list of cut files that I used.)

First, I cut out the Barn Box using Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock for the roof and the gingham check Barn Yard Friends paper.

I wanted the roof to have shingles like the inspiration photo, so I simply cut 1” strips of the Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock using my paper trimmer and then cut notches into the strips using a pair of scissors. I layered them together along the roof, finishing it off with a wider strip scored down the middle and notched on both sides to lay across the top of the roofline. To help the shingles pop a bit more, I brushed the edges with light gray distressing ink.

I used detail scissors to fussy-cut the farmer from one of the stickers on the Element Sticker sheet. I added him along with the cow sticker to the front of the barn using foam squares. I created a few corn stalks to go on either side of the barn door using the leaf sprig from the Flowers Bloom Die Set.

Next, I used the Carta Bella Paper Tree Die Set to add die cut trees and additional corn stalks to the sides of the box.

The barn is placed on top of an octagonal shaped box that I cut using Navy Blue Felt Designer Cardstock. I added green “grass” to the top of the box using Classic Green Felt Designer Cardstock. Before adhering the grass panel into place, I embossed it using a letter-sized polka dot embossing folder from my stash. I also die cut a long fence shape from Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock using the “Echo Park Fence” cut file (Design #39988) and adhered it along the edges of the panel. I welded the fence sections together in the design program to make a longer border, then scored the bottom of each post, which allowed me to adhere it to the grass panel.

The rim of the box is decorated with the chicken border cut from the Journaling Cards paper. I also added panels to the base of the box cut from the Farm Trucks paper.

The front of the box is decorated with the “Farm Living” die cut from the Ephemera Pack, a dog sticker (Element Stickers), more die cut corn stalks (Flowers Bloom Die Set), and a pair of cowboy boots created with the Carta Bella Boot & Horseshoe Die Set.

I cut the boots from Kraft Designer Cardstock, Chestnut Brown Linen Designer Cardstock, and silver foil cardstock from my stash. I stamped a design on the side of the boot with brown ink using the leaf stamp from the Beautiful Day Stamp Set.

Echo Park Paper: You & Me Card

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and I am getting ahead of the game this year by creating a card for my sweetheart using the beautiful Echo Park Paper You and Me collection.

A pair of swans (cut from the Swan Lake Love paper) are “swimming” on the sketched oval shape from the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper.

I adhered the oval to the narrow floral card from the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper so that the flowers peek out on either side. I emphasized the flowers by tucking in more florals created with the Love You Floral Die Set and Ultra White Designer Felt Cardstock.

Next, I cut the “Love You” sentiment from the same die set using Gold Shimmer and Ebony Black Felt Designer cardstocks. I offset the layers slightly giving the gold paper a shadow layer underneath.

Finally, I added the “You Have My Heart” sticker above the swan and added tiny gems in the corners for a bit of sparkle.

Echo Park Paper: Love Always Card

I love having several cards on hand to write notes to my friends and family. Today I have a pretty card to share with you created with the Carta Bella Paper Our House collection.

I used the 6×6 Paper Pad to create the background for this card, but decided to add a little something more to the solid aqua paper.

I pulled out the Falling for You 6×6 Stencil from the Echo Park Paper You & Me collection and used a sponge to add a subtle heart pattern to the aqua paper using mint green ink. I LOVE the result!

Next, I cut out a card from the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper to anchor the pink journal card die cut from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack. I then the word “love” from the Gather Love Word Die Set to create a sentiment. The focal point of this card is the darling flower sticker featuring flowers arranged in a measuring cup. So CUTE!
