Technique Tuesday: Landscape Card in a Box

Last month, I showed you how to make a Portrait style Card in a Box. This month’s technique is for the Landscape style of the same box.

My first sample is for Christmas and uses the Peaceful Pines stamp set, the matching Perfect Pines Framelits from the Holiday Catalogue and Merry Moments DSP from the Annual Catalogue.

As with the portrait version, the card folds flat for mailing. It will fit into a standard C6 envelope.

Here is a birthday version.

The following card is the one I have used for the instructions. The only difference to the one above is that it uses embossed cardstock instead of DSP on the top layers.
