I’ve chosen one of my favourites ‘Josephine’ and created this pretty gift box card:

I’ve used the pre coloured image and the background to create this gift box card. I’ve just made a box at the front for my image to sit on by cutting a card layer 2cm wider the image on all 4 sides. Then score at 1cm and 2 cm in from each edge to create the box. Cut out the corner sections and create tabs for easy folding

For a closer look:
