Sweet as Lemonade ☆ CottageCutz

Welcome back crafty friends!

I decided to make a box card this week for the CottageCutz blog.  I like them because they are easier than they look and you can fit more dies/images on them to create cute scenes and really gives your recipient a fun surprise!  ☺ 

I've used several brand new sets from the Flowers & More Release -- which are all 30% off for a limited time!  I also used a few more dies not from this release, and the cute girl is one I drew quite a few years ago for my own digital collection (pd 2015; not currently available)

Design Steps:

1.  I cut all my cardstock and patterned paper pieces:

Pink Cardstock:
• 4-7/8" square
• (2)  2-1/2" x 1-1/4" - scored 1/2" in on each end;  mitered top flaps

White Cardstock:
• die cut the largest Nested Wacky Stitched Rectangles

Lime Green Cardstock:
• 1-1/4" x 4-7/8"
• (2) 5-5/8" x 1-1/4" - score 3/8" in from each end; miter top flaps

Patterned Paper (green):
• 4-3/4" x 1-1/8"

Patterned Paper (pink):
• 1-1/8" x 1-3/8"

2.  I stenciled sun rays onto the Wacky Stitched Rectangle with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink.

3.  I mounted my patterned papers and sun rays to their corresponding pieces as shown below.

4.  To assemble the shelves, I used the same technique as my cow box card HERE (follow steps 8-14).

5.  I die cut all my decorative pieces, then colored and assembled them.  

*Note:  I die cut 2 of the lemonade stand, one in a wood pattern and one in white and glue together to make it more sturdy.  

6.  I attached all my pieces!  

*Note:  I stamped "You're as" onto the sun rays panel.  Then glued the Sweet w/ Shadow in place.  I attached the stand, fence and my stamped girl with a piece of heavy acetate that extended an inch below the die cut/image and attached that to the shelves.  You could use cardstock, but the acetate I used is sturdier than c.s.  Here's a couple of process photos.

One more look at my finished card.

It folds to the side and fits into a 5" x 7" envelope.
