Valentine’s Card in a box and a Blog Hop

I absolutely the LOVE the WOW factor of a card in a box. The first one I made was almost 5 years ago for my sons Carson’s 14th birthday. Time to share how easy it is! Are you ready for a fun monster Valentine card in a box? And a Blog Hop? Today you get both!

First lets take a peek at the card:

Of course I am using the “Eyes on You” stamp set. So much fun these monsters. Even though these were for Halloween, I knew they would be perfect for Valentines and of course birthdays too! Totally adorable!

Lets get right to the Card in a box video tutorial:

It is important to see the card in a box closed. This is the front. all the fun elements are hidden so the wow factor when the card is open is a surprise!

And the back of the card is where I like to put the message. Another key point this easily fits into and A2 envelope.

Most important you need card in a box specs!

Two 4 x 6 pieces of card stock. Scored on the long side at 2″, turn and score at 2 and 5-1/2. Two pieces of 1 x 5 card stock, scored at 3/4 on both ends. Follow your heart printed paper: Four pieces 1-3/4 x 1-3/4, Two pieces 3-1/4 x 1-3/4, One piece 3-1/4 x 3-3/4. Plus one piece of whip cream 3-1/4 x 3-3/4 for the back of the box.
