Looking for a WOW card to send? Check out Card in a Box!

I love making a card in a box because I can just imagine the look on the recipient's face when it is open.  These cards fold flat to mail and fit into a regular envelope but when they open they magically open into a 3-dimensional surprise.  

Check out the cards we will be making in my upcoming Card in a Box class on August 14th from 7-9pm. There's still room for you if you'd like to register.  Email me or click here to register.

Uses Maritime DSP, Glimmer paper and Silver  Fancy Foil Designer Vellum with Star Framelits
Uses Polka Dot Pieces Stamp Set with Park Lane DSP
Uses Flower Patch Stamp Set and coordinating Flower Fair Framelits
Box:  Card Stock cut to 8 ¾" x 5 ½" and scored at ¼", 2 ⅜", 4 ½" and 6 ⅝" on the long side then turn and score at 2 ¾" on the short side.  Cut down to the centre score line on the 4 score lines from the top and cut out the small tab on the side (leaving the bottom tab).  Fold your box along the score lines - I don't fold down one tab that will be the back.

Inserts: Cut Card Stock 2 ⅝" x ½" scored at ¼" and 2 ⅜".  Apply double sided tape to each side - I put the tape on the opposite side and fold one tab forward and one backward.

DSP:  Cut pieces 1 ⅞" by 2 ½" - I use different DSP around the bottom of the box and on the inside of the box, but this is your preference.  You need 7 pieces in total.

Back:  Cut Whisper White or Very Vanilla Card Stock 5 ¼" by 1 ⅞".  This becomes the back of the box and you can stamp a sentiment on this piece. 

Decorations:  You can decorate as you wish.  Stamp sets with coordinating punches like Polka-Dot Pieces (Item # 128708) or with coordinating framelits like Flower Patch (Item #134207) and Flower Fair (Item #133731) make it really easy.   

If you have questions with the instructions, leave a comment or email me.
