Christmas card in a box for MFT October & Friends

Christmas card in a box for October MFT & Friends.

Yay, it’s time to celebrate the MFT October & Friends and thus the launch of the October release! I’ve created a Christmas card in a box with a bunch of the new products, that I hope you’ll enjoy.

First, let me say, that I can’t get over how quick and easy it is to make one of these cards with the Outside the Box Die-namics! I started by cutting the main parts out of Smooth White and Berrylicious card stock. Then I cut the matching square and rectangle out of patterned paper, from the Christmas Cheer Paper Pad. For the inside pieces, I went with the Outside the Box Waves Die-namics and Sno Cone Card Stock.

After assembling the box with Score-tape, I stamped and die cut a bunch of critters from the Partners in Adventure and Warm Hugs and Frosty Kisses sets. Somehow I managed to use them all! However, since I adhered the hot air balloon and cloud hanging off the upper edge, the card won’t fit in a standard A2 envelope. It fits perfectly in a square one though.

Next, I heat embossed the beautiful sentiment on a strip of Red Hot Card Stock and adhered it to the front of the box. I think it draws attention and ties the whole color scheme together.

For the finishing touches, I added Nuvo Fresh Snow Glitter Accents to the ice and trees, and Glossy Accents to the noses.
