Camping Friends

Hey friends Amanda here today and  I'm excited to be sharing a fabulous camping themed box card using one of the new stamp sets Outdoor Fun Stamp Set and the previously released  Fall Box Card die set!

Here's a look at the finished card, then we'll take a simple step-by-step how to put this box card together and decorate it with your favorite cuties, whether it be these new adorable camping squirrels or something else from your stash.

Start by die cutting all of the pieces from the Fall Box Card die set - parts A and B. I decided to cut them from the same color because I will be ink blending them to help parts stand out.

I used rustic wilderness distress oxide ink to add depth and interest to each piece that has little grass tufts on it. The pieces that are left plain will have inked pieces glued to them.

Next, we add tear tape to all of the tabs. When I'm adding tape to something like a box card that will get wear and tear, I like to add pieces larger than the tab and trim off the excess so I know the entire tab has adhesive on it.

***Pro-tip so you don't make the same mistake I did*** On this piece with the embossed lines, add tear tape to one tab and turn it over, adding tear tape to the opposite side for the second tab.

Now, it's time to decorate using the colored and cut out stamp images. I added 1/8 inch tear tape to the bottom of each of my images and added them to all of the sections, filling in the whole box card. We leave for camping tomorrow so this card was extra fun for me to create because I'm really in the mood.
