Box cards are so cute and look so difficult, but they are super easy! And the Cricut file includes an envelope sized perfectly to the folded down box card.
I start by importing a basic box card design from SVGCuts and cut the base pieces from black cardstock.
I cut the accent pieces from various designer papers. I've used papers from Authentique's new "Bountiful" collection.
I decide which papers will be on my exterior and adhere them to the base.
I flip the base over and adhere the pieces to the interior panels.
I adhered the box together then added the two support strips inside. Everything is scored on the Cricut, so it's super easy to fold and go!
Rather than fussy-cut the fall leaves from this sheet, I used a maple leaf punch similar in size. Even though it's not the exact size as the leaves, once I inked the edges they looked great.
On the Cricut, I cut out several bats of various sizes from black cardstock. I stamped a tag with October 31 and added a sparkly brad, then die-cut the pumpkins and their parts from Elizabeth Craft Designs "Pumpkins" set.
Now comes the fun of assembly. Just layer and arrange however you like. Sometimes I use layers of foam tape to pop elements up.
To the base I added the wrought iron gate pieces, which are gray cardstock punched with an older Martha Stewart Crafts die.
In Cricut Design Space I searched "zig zag" and found these great border strips. I stamped Happy Halloween and popped it up with foam tape. Done!
Not into Halloween? Change up the elements a little and make a Thanksgiving/Fall card...
Same paper collection, different stamps. I eliminated the faces from the pumpkins and used lots of the stickers from the 12 x 12 sticker sheet which comes with the paper collection.
