Card in a Box: For Boys!

I am part of a few Facebook Groups that target card making and Cricut. So I found this wonderful new trend called: Card in a Box. I followed the measurements from a lady on YouTube called; Serene Stamper Channel.

Measurements: Cut card stock 8 1/4"x9". Score along the 9" side; 2 1/8", 4 1/4", 6 3/8", 8 1/2", Turn 90·. Score at 2 3/4". With the 8 1/4" side on top and the 2 3/4" side on the left, cut at 6". Take the scrap piece and cut at 3 1/8", turn pice and cut in half you'll have two pieces to be inserted in your card box to hold your items. I really recommend watching the above video by Serene Stamper Channel. Very helpful!
Cricut Cartridge(s): Create a Critter 2
Note: I got the sports team logo from various websites.

I made a card for a friend's son, who is turning one this month. They're big fan's of the Portland Timbers. I had posted my card on the group and a lady asked me if I was willing to make her one for her grandson. I was so flattered!!! So, I made her a Boston Red Sox themed card. I'm pretty proud of it. It was my second Card in a Box.

I have definitely found that it can be difficult (not impossible) to find boy appropriate stuff. I have two boys and multiple male nephews, and it takes me awhile to come up with masculine cards. But, hey!, can't go wrong with sports. Hope you enjoy them.

Baby Shower Card in a Box

Here is a card in a box I made for a baby shower. I used Michael's Recollections Expecting 3D stickers, and Michael's cardstock. I made a coordinating envelope with it too. I was pretty happy with the way it turned out.

Triple Stamp Card


It's been awhile since my last post. I've been swamped at my work, house chores (I. Hate. Laundry. So. Much.), and other hobbies that I find myself doing instead of crafts (I love genealogy), but all is well now! Portland, Oregon has been sunny and beautiful this weekend!, and I made time to craft. <3

Well, I wanted to post my newest craft creation, since I'm trying out on my first card challenge. It is a Triple Stamp card. It's my first one and I must confess that I LOVE this style! It looks complex, but it is SO easy! <3

This is Week 3:

I love making these cards so much I made another one for fun!

Frozen Card in a Box

I love cards in a box. They are so festive and show how much care went in to them. They are a little tricky at first but so worth it if you take your time and pay attention to detail. My little niece loves Frozen, so I made a Frozen inspired card in a box. I used Cricut Create a Friend, and Princess Party Cartridges.
