Hello crafty friends! Welcome to day 2 of the new Yay You release from Simon Says Stamp.
There are so many wonderful products in this release. I have used the Basic Box Card Stars die from the new Yay You release to make a fun box card. It's perfect to give to a graduate or someone who has achieved something amazing!
So lets dive right in on how I made this fun card. I began with a piece of Fog card stock for the box. I then die cut the cloud frame as my second layer panel from white card stock and stamped the word Congratulations in red ink on the bottom of the cloud frame. I then cut a piece of acetate and ahered it behind the cloud frame. I die cut the You Did It sentiment from holographic paper and glued it to the center of the acetate to appear to be floating. The next layer panel I used the new Stars add on die and cut it from white card stock. I wanted a splash of color so I used copic markers to color the stars.
For the very last layer of my box card I just cut a panel out of more holographic paper to adhere to the back of the box. I just love the way holographic card stock catches the light! So fun and festive. Then using the tips from Nina's video I added sticky strip tape to the panel layers and and folded it up so they would line up perfectly. I then added a few die cut stars to the front and that's it! If you want to learn the basics on how to put the card box togehter Nina Trapiani's Youtube channel has a great tutuorial!
