I’d like to give a huge Shout-Out to Sue Stampfield as the creator of this easy Box Seat fun-fold card and my upline, Jarmila Vik for introducing me to this card. This card was pretty easy to make and comes together quickly. I’ve had a great time trying different Designer Series Papers and stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to recreate this card in my own way. Scroll down to see more samples!

For this particular card, I’ve used the Designer Series Paper called, Most Adored which is a free item from the sale-a-bration! brochure. This 12″ x 12″ DSP is free with a $50 purchase (before tax & shipping). This paper is gorgeous!

Measurements:

  • Thick Basic White card stock 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″
  • White card stock 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ and 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ (die cut) plus scraps for stamping
  • Real Red card stock 3″ x 3″
  • DSP:
    • 2 @ 2″ x 5-1/4″ (side front panels)
    • 4 @ 3/4″ x 1-3/4″ (top and bottom, centers)

Instructions:

Place the card base “landscape” along the top edge of the Paper Trimmer/Scoring tool at 2-1/4″ and score from top to bottom. Turn this card base 180 degrees and score again at 2-1/4″ from top to bottom. Next, turn the card base “portrait” and line it up so the right edge was against the 1″ mark on the right side of the Paper Trimmer/Scoring tool. Using my cutting blade, cut from the top score line down to the bottom score line. Turn this card base 180 degrees, line the edge of the card base so the right edge is against the 1″ mark and cut, same as the other side.

Turn the card base back to landscape and line the left side of the card stock at 3-1/4″. Score from the cut line down to the other cut line. Turn the card base 180 degrees, line up the left side of the card stock at 3-1/4″ and repeat the score from cut line to cut line.

Place the card base in the Paper Trimmer/Scoring tool in the landscape position and line up the left side at the 4-1/4″ mark. Score from the top to the cut line and then score from the bottom up to the cut line. Set your Paper Trimmer/Scoring tool to the side for a bit.

Adhere the DSP to the 2 front side flaps and the 2 top and 2 bottom center areas using your favorite adhesive. Place the 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ basic white card stock in the embossing folder of your choice, I used 1 of the 3 Embossing Folders from the Online Exclusives, Basics 3D Embossing Folder set. Using your Paper Trimmer/Scoring tool, cut one side at 3/4″, turn it 180 degrees and cut the other side at 3/4″. Adhere these 3 pieces to the center of the card front.

Using the Thoughtful Expressions dies, cut the Real Red card stock using the 3rd largest die. Cut the Basic White card stock using the 4th largest die.

Using Real Red ink, stamp your greeting at the top of the Basic White die cut. On the scraps, stamp 3 hearts in Real Red ink and punch them out using the Bee Builder Punch. Adhere 2 of the stamped/punched hearts just below the greeting. Use Mini Dimensionals to attach the 3rd heart to the area between the 2 hearts. Place 3 regular Dimensionals down the center of the back of the Real Red die cut and adhere to the center panel of the card.

Color 3 Basic Rhinestone jewels with the Dark, Real Red Stampin’ Blend. Adhere to the front of the card. Decorate the back side of the card as desired. Don’t forget to decorate your envelope as well.
