Halloween Themed Card in a Box featuring Spooky Cat


Thank you for joining us for our "Enjoy the little things in life - Design Team Video Blog Hop. We are going to be giving you Halloween inspiration this month, grab a cuppa and sit back and visit the design team and pick up some some great ideas and tips including how to videos. 

When I saw the Cat Punch in the Holiday Catalogue, it went straight on my wish list - little miss 10 was so excited when she unpacked my delivery that not only contained the cat punch,but also the Spooky Cat stamp set (purchase as a Bundle and save 10%)and matching Spooky Night Designer Series paper!

I've created a "custom sized" Card in a box for my project today - why custom sized you say, I specifically made the dimensions to accommodate:

1. the moon lit background design on the DSP
2. when the card folds flat it fits perfectly in a normal size envelope




Once you get the hang of what dimensions are required, it's possible to make your card in a box so many different dimensions so that you can take advantage of stunning DSP designs, specific stamp set elements, or die cuts. All the dimensions for this project  are listed in the video tutorial for you.


I adhered the gorgeous Vintage CrochetTrim around the edge of the oval die cut, it was a little fiddly, HINT/TIP - wait for the tombo glue to become tacky it's easier.

Here you can see the inner panel of the card in a box, adhering your cat here creates a lovely 3D scene



Here's a quick tutorial of me making this Card in a Box, including the dimensions - enjoy!
