Birthday Box Card with a Twist

Birthday Box Card with a Twist

xxxDSC_1180.jpg

I saw a video HERE where Maymay created a variation of a box card on the inside of her card.  The other interesting thing she did was to create windows through which you can view the popped up images that are sitting on the hidden strips or crossbars (like on a traditional box card).  And finally, she used stickers for her images (which I never think to do!).

I needed a few masculine cards so I set out to find stickers and card stock that would work with this card design and that would be appropriate for the men’s cards.  I ended up using Me & My Big Ideas (SPX-308) stickers (that I stuck to white card stock and fussy cut) and American Crafts Pinkpaislee #1254 card stock (from Dots & More Dots pad) as well as Recollections kraft and white.

These stickers are foiled.  Here is a better view of the shine.

I used a sticker on the front, but I wish I had heat embossed the greeting.  I’m not crazy about being able to see the clear around the words.  Oh well!

The greeting on the back is the Stampendous – Cling “Delightful Birthday” (#CRH306) stamp.

  1. Love this, Lisa. One thing I have done when adding those stickers is to stick them on the contrasting color..the craft, and cut it out before putting it on. Somehow that always seems to work better for me. Great card!!
