Proverbs 16:24 Staggered Triple Box Card

I seem to have fallen down the Iced Images rabbit hole recently! Watching a tutorial on making a tiered gatefold card (see my previous blog post) led to watching a video of this staggered triple box card. After watching the staggered triple box card video, I then proceeded to watch another Iced Images video and will let you know how the triple floating diamond card comes out in an upcoming blog post. I'm sure I'll end up watching another dozen or so of her videos as she has some very fun card designs I'd like to try. I also really appreciate how the dimensions for the card pieces are listed at the bottom of her videos so I can easily make Silhouette Design Studio files to cut them out. I prefer to use my Silhouette Cameo rather than hand cut and score all the pieces as I am typically doing sets of cards rather than individual cards and it saves a lot of time to use a cut file for my machine. Here's a link to the video, but I warn you that you may also fall down the rabbit hole!

Proverbs 16:24 is a good reminder to me to be more intentional in sharing kind words with those God puts in my path. Words of kindness and encouragement can make such a difference to someone experiencing a difficult situation or having a rough day. These cards will go to my little group of shut ins whom I send a card to each week, but I also plan to send some to friends who have come alongside me and spoken kind, uplifting words when I needed some encouragement myself. I'm blessed with many wonderful Christian friends and want to be sure they know how much I appreciate them. Is there someone you could share a kind word with today?

Here's what it looks like when closed. It fits into an A7 envelope.
