Easter Box Card

Good morning friends

I had been eyeing the new Lawn Fawn Box Card die set but exercising restraint. Then I saw Sandi MacIvers You Tube Video (click HERE) which shows how to easily create this rectangle Box Card using one sheet of letter sized card stock. 


I used a bunch of stuff from my stash, both newer and older products. These Impression Obsession Bunnies I've had for a couple of years but don't use them nearly enough.



This is the card folded up and ready to go into an envelope. It fits easily into an A2 envelope, but since I added 3-d stickers will likely require extra postage. If I had kept my elements flat it could mail for a single stamp.


Sandi's video shows the card closed as shown below, but I like keeping the flaps down for mailing. Mostly because not everyone can figure these out - honestly, I have witnessed people trying to figure out how to 'open' it - so I like to give any help I can. Keeping the flaps down when mailing, gives the recipient a clue as to what this type of card is supposed to do. But I wanted to share the additional view as well. Sandi decorated these bare flaps in her video but since mine were going to stay down I didn't and that reduced the weight of the card as well.



Still loving that Lawn Fawn Happy Happy set!
