Once cut, this card goes together quite quickly. First, just add the front, side panels. I used the Darice Thin Lines embossing folder for the texture.

Then the top side panels with the fall leaves cutout. I used foam tape to lift the panel up, to give it a bit more dimension.

Next, I attached the pieced pumpkin the right side card flap.

Add the inside panel.  I decided to emboss the inside panel with my Sizzix Alterations Leaves embossing folder.  I plan to add an additional word frame or tag to write on prior to sending. Since I do not like waste, I used the cutout fall leaves from the front panel on the inside.

Then, I attached a Happy Fall word tag (not included) to the left card flap and a string to hold the card close.

USA Banner Box 4th of July Card

USA Banner Box 4th of July Card

Here is a card I designed using the Free USA Banner Box SVG. The card is A2 size.  I simply used one banner as and a simple background, tag with 4th of July image from Cricut, and a few star brads.

I first added the star brads to the paper background, to add a little dimension.

Then I added the enlarged banner from the USA Banner Box design after adhering the paper background to the card.
