Graduation Box Card

I have been wanting to make a box card for awhile, especially since I purchased the Box Card Die Set from The Stamps of Life by Stephanie Barnard.  Crafting a special graduation card for my DSD was the perfect time to give box card making a go!

Only one sheet of gold and one sheet of maroon were used in creating this fun card.  I started with the aforementioned Box Card Die Set, with a few additions.  Sizzix Framelits Drop-Ins 560147 added a few details to the center stand up pieces.  I also used Quickutz dies for the Grad Cap, diploma, Balloons, and Streamers.

A view from one side . . .

 . . . and then the other.  So many fun things to look at in this die cut card!  All the center decorations are die cut in positive and reverse images.  Recycled packaging is used for mounting the decorations to the mechanism inside the box card.  Xyron and glue dots were my friends to adhere this master piece together!

The envelope is made from another sheet of maroon cardstock, and a few remaining die cuts decorate the outside.  This card did not stay within the size of an A2 card so the custom sized envelop was necessary!

I love how the card folds flat for mailing, or in this case hand carrying on the flight to Arizona!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I still have a few more graduation cards to share, stay tuned!

I am delighted to enter the following challenges:
