Snow Place Box Card

I had a request from Stacey, a Stamp Club member, wanting to learn to make a box card.  So, this is one of our projects from December Stamp Club.  I’ve seen several box cards on Pinterest, but I wanted ours to fit in a medium envelope, so I did change the dimensions a bit from the ones I saw.

Here’s the fixin’s!

So that you can see the measurements, I’ll be using white CS for my tutorial, but the Snowman sample is made with Night of Navy.

Our box base is a half sheet of CS (5 1/2″ by 8 1/2″).  With the CS horizontal, score at 2″, 4″, 6″, and 8″.

Box Card 1

Turn the CS to a vertical position and score at 2″.

Box Card 2

Cut on the four score lines (2″,4″, 6″, 8″) on the “short” side (2″), up to the score line.  Cut the 1/2″ x 2″ piece off, and cut a small angle off of the 1/2″ x 3″ piece, so it will adhere nicely.

Box Card 3

Fold on the vertical score lines, and three of the horizontal lines (to make the box flaps).  DO NOT fold the “flap” closest to the 1/2″ piece.  This will be the back of the card and will stand up straight.

Box Card 4

Place a strong adhesive (glue or tear & tape) on the 1/2″ flap and adhere to the other end of the CS to form the box.

Box Card 5

Cut two strips of CS 1″ x 3″.  Score each piece 1/2″ from the end.

Box Card 6

Fold the ends, and adhere into the center of the box, one in front and one in back.  This will be the base to attach your decorations.

Box Card 8

Decorate your box card as desired.  We used the Flurry of Wishes Bundle and the Snow Place Bundle.  Ink colors:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Marina Mist, Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy.

Until next time…….stay inky, my friends!

 

Christmas Card Class #8

This was our bonus project from the afternoon Christmas Card Classes.  This is a CASE from the fabulous Patty Bennett.  I changed it up a bit by using the Snow Place Bundle.  It’s made from a Kraft Tag a Bag Gift Bag.  A to/from card slips inside the bag, while a Gift Card fits in the pocket of the fold.

Here’s the fixin’s!

Score the gift bag 3″ from the bottom of the bag.  Fold the bottom up.  Stamp the greeting on the right hand side of the bottom flap, which has been folded up in Mossy Meadow.  Wrap a 1 1/2″ x 10 1/2″ strip of Merry Moments DSP around the bag, adhering so that the “seam” will be behind the penguin.  Tie a piece of Real Red satin ribbon (from the Clearance Rack) above the DSP.

Take a 4″ square piece of Real Red CS.  Punch two adjacent corners with the Curvy Corner Trio Punch.  Stamp the words from the Oh, What Fun stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black.

On a white scrap, stamp the penguin in Memento Tuxedo Black, and color the beak and feet with a Tangelo Twist Marker.  Stamp the candy cane and Santa hat in Real Red.  Cut all three with the matching framelit dies, and adhere with dimensionals.

Christmas Card Class #7

The final card from my Christmas Card Classes.  We made three each of three designs, plus one bonus project in each class.  This card uses the Cozy Christmas and Sparkly Seasons stamp set.

Cozy Christmas

The base card is made of Real Red CS.

I used my paper saving technique once again on this card.  We cut the white circle from the bottom left area of the white panel using the Seasonal Frame Thinlit Die, and punched a 2 1/2″ circle from the Smoky Slate panel.

The greeting from Cozy Christmas is stamped in the upper right corner in Real Red.  A strip of DSP from the Merry Moments pack is adhered to the white panel, covering the circle we cut out for the snowglobe.  The white panel is adhered to the Smoky Slate panel, covering the whole we punched.  A piece of silver satin ribbon is placed across the front and adhered to the back of the smoky slate panel.

We stamped the cabin from Cozy Christmas onto the white circle.  The snow from the Sparkly Season set is stamped in Smoky Slate.  The white circle was adhered to the Smoky Slate circle and adhered to the card with dimensionals.  The snowglobe base from Sparkly Seasons is stamped onto a scrap of Real Red CS, fussy cut, and adhered with dimensionals.

Using the 2-way glue pen, we randomly dotted the snow, the cabin roof, and the snow beneath the cabin, and sprinkled on Dazzling Diamonds.
