Stampin'Up Petite Petals Card in a Box!


Hi Stamping Friends,

Have you tried making a card in a box yet? It's really easy and really fun!!!

I needed some special birthday cards so I used the Flower Shop Bundle #132727 (W) or #132726 (C) and the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper to make my card.

The greeting is from the A Fitting Occasion stamp set #131952.  This is one I fall back on quite often.  It has four simple greetings that I can punch out with the 1" circle punch and layer with other circles or scallop shapes.

I started with Island Indigo 5-1/2" x 9" card stock scored at 2-1/8", 4-1/4", 6-3/8" and 8-1/2" on the 9" side.  Turn your card stock and score at 2-3/4' on the 5-1/2"side. 
On the 9" side cut up to the 2-3/4"score line four times. ( I used my Stampin' Trimmer.)  
Cut away the 1/2" rectangle.  
I have included a picture for you. 
Sticky strip gets applied to the 1/2" tab and you just close the box. 



The secret to the box are the two centre pieces of card stock that go inside the box. They are 1-1/2" x 3-1/8" scored at 1/2" and 2-5/8. Add sticky strip to the tabs and placed inside the box.

Next cut five 1/2" x 3" strips from our Stampin' Up window sheets. Attach these to the centre card stock pieces with a glue dot. Attach your flowers to the top of the window sheet strips with a glue dot. 

This card can be folded up and mailed in a regular A2 envelope.

Now, if you're a frugal stamper and want to get two cards out of one piece of card stock, Just change the dimensions to 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and score at 2", 4", 6" & 8" and then 2-3/4" the other side.
Your center card stock pieces would be 3" scored at 1/2" and 2-3/4".  

Happy Stamping,
Karina
