Today I’m going to share the first Card-in-a-box that I have ever made! I’ve been planning on making one of these style cards for quite a while, I just have not had the time to start from scratch with a new technique.
I finally decided to make it in stages:
- Firstly I searched for a tutorial with measurements included, as that was one area that I could save time with. There are quite a few generic templates out there so go for it!
- Next I took the measurements that I had found and tweaked them slightly to be able to get two card bases from one sheet of UK A4 card.
- For the second session the following evening, I cut and scored two bases ready to decorate.
- Day 3 found me decorating the card with panels and stamped images that I both hand cut out and punched out.
Voila – project complete!
Here is the finished project:
I chose cream card as the base and used Calypso Coral – a soft pink ink by Stampin’ Up!
I used a selection of stamps and matching punches and added vellum leaves.
Any questions please ask away 🙂
Take Care and Happy Crafting!!
