Basic Box Card Week-Day 1

Hello, crafty friends. Simon Says Stamp recently released THIS Basic Box Card die and I just can’t stop creating with it! So, I decided to dedicate a whole week on my blog sharing some ideas using it. Today’s card is perfect to send to a crafty friend…
To create this card, I die-cut the large panel from the Basic Box Card die twice from Doll Pink cardstock. I die-cut a rectangle from the front of one of the panels using the largest rectangle die from the die set. I added tape to both the scored flaps and adhered one of them to the other piece creating a long panel when flat. I added a strip of patterned paper to the back of the box using the Cute and Crafty 6×6 Paper Pad. I die-cut one of the heart panels from the Basic Box Card Hearts die set from Cotton Candy cardstock and cut the scalloped border from the same die set from Doll Pink cardstock. I trimmed off the sides of the scalloped border and adhered it to the front of the box…
I stamped a sentiment from the US of Craft-ay stamp set on the center heart die-cut and adhered down the Cute and Crafty shape sprinkles. I applied tape to the score flaps to the sides of the heart piece and adhered one side down to the inside panel. I removed the tape from the other side and closed the card flat to pick up the other side. This helps keep everything aligned. Lastly, I adhered the final flap to the inside, back of the card to form the box shape.

The best part is the completed card can fold down and fit inside an A2 envelope.

My friend, Nina Marie Trapani created an easy how-to video HERE. I watched it before creating my cards and I highly recommend it because it was easy to follow.

Here’s a closer look…
The back is a great place to write your message for the recipient. I decided to decorate it too…

I will be back tomorrow with another card using the Basic Box Card die. I’m telling ya, it’s addictive! 🙂

Thank you for joining me today. Happy crafting!
