ID: MC Dec/17 - Santa Card In A Box - ECD Merry Christmas - I'm Telling You card
size: 7"w x 5"H  (card closed)

Created: December 5, 2017

It's my turn on the Quietfire Creations blog this week. The last time I made this type card was in 2014... so thought I'd make one again and let you know how to make one yourself...

I'm using an A Way With Words dies "Merry Christmas" from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE

I'm using Quietfire Santa/Reindeer sleigh  file available on the Silhouette OnLine store Click on pic to purchase.


I'm also using a quotes and background stamps from Quietfire Design.

("I'm Telling You..." 2pce set); ("Merry Christmas Background")



On the side flaps: Stamped the "Merry Christmas Background" onto white cardstock using the black and clear embossed. Sponged some of the blue lightly all over and trimmed down and adhered to fit edge to edge on both flaps.

See below for the cutting and construction details.

Before the box was glued together to make the box card, I decorated the inside by stamping the cloud background (Impression Obsession Cover A Card "Clouds") inking with various Distress blues.

Electronically cut the Santa sleigh & reindeers from white cardstock and colored while still on my mat using Distress dabbers "Black Soot". I cut off the first 2 reindeer and adhered them to the back of the main reindeer. That way I was able to cut my image larger than would fit on my card... Adhered to clouds.

Die cut the evergreen trees a couple times (Tim's On The Edge "Tree Line") then colored with various Distress green's. Used the edge of a piece of cardstock to create shadow on the hill, sponging with "Stormy Sky".

Stamped the house (AlteNew "Winter Cottage") using Versafne Blac Onyx and clear embossed. Fussy cut around the top edge.

Trimmed down the 3 layers as suggested below adding the 1/4" tabs to adhere to the box sides.

Stamped the quote onto a piece of white cardstock using the black, clear embossed and trimmed close to stamping. Sponged some blue around the edges and adhered to the house line.

On the large flap I adhered a piece of heavy texture white heavy paper (Coral Reef paper) edge to edge.

Die cut the Merry Christmas from a light blue cardstock, then inked it with Versamark and embossed with Emerald Creek "Turquoise Shimmer" embossing powder. Adhered to flap.

I cut and adhered some decorative paper to the front. Left the back as white cardstock.

Stamped the sentiment with the black and clear embossed. 

Please note, the back panel does not have a score line down the middle, only the front piece does... If you've accidentally scored it, then cut another piece of cardstock the same size as back and adhere so that it remains as a stiff upright panel.
