Happy Valentine’s Day Birdhouse Box Card

Hey everybody! I’m back on this fine Saturday morning with my second project share for the CutCardStock My Sweet Valentine Blog Hop going on today and tomorrow! Be sure to hop along with us for a chance to win a $40 CutCardStock gift card! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’ve been having the best time playing with my Scan N Cut and thoroughly enjoyed creating the two Valentines from our amazing Basis cardstock for the hop. As mentioned in my last post, I’m showcasing both cards separately so I can enter them into some challenges. I am a fun fold geek and box cards run right there at the top of my favorite list! This card features lots of hearts in various forms and sizes, an adorable birdhouse adorned with red bling, embossed panels, and two of the cutest love birds ever perched in front of their house behind a white picket fence!

I cut all the pieces from Basis 80# Red cardstock, Basis 80# Pink cardstock, Basis 80# Black cardstock, Basis 80# White cardstock and Basis 80# Gold cardstock. Picking out the colors of cardstock is always fun when creating with the Scan N Cut, but I always look forward to the assembly the most! And the sentiment on the front of this card was also printed with the Scan N Cut using the draw feature which I’ve used several times and have grown to love!

Here’s a shot from a different angle. The back (which I didn’t photograph) is completely blank with plenty of room to write a custom message and sign.

And one more peek of the card folded flat for mailing. Another super cute box card that I’m totally in love with!
