So I am sure if you live on the planet earth you have seen, heard or made a "Card In The Box" and once I saw one, I had to make one. If you follow my blog you are well aware that I have been helping my best friend plan my her son's birthday party, which happens to be a construction theme party. So it was only natural that I make a "Card In The Box" - Construction Theme. Here is the finished card:

You can find instructions or YouTube videos all over the internet, Pinterest, or YouTube. However I wanted a file that I could import into my Silhouette software. So using the file dimensions I found online, I created on. You can download this file below to use in your Silhouette Studio software. Also check out more free files HERE

Once you have the card cut out in your desired color, you need to figure out the theme of your "Card In The Box" and get stuff to fill it! I wanted to go with a Birthday Construction card so I knew the perfect site to go to. You can find all the files I used for this card over at ScrappyDew Store. I used the Construction Kids File  and the Birthday Boy Cake Smash File.  You can find the links for these files also below. 

The great thing about all of ScrappyDew's files is that not only do you get SVG files, but you also get Print and Cut files that can be used in the Silhouette Software program. For this card I used this feature and cut all kids at 2" tall and the cones and trucks along the bottom of the card at 1". I used the stop sign from the kids and using my software deleted the STOP and typed out the HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Using my software I inserted the CAUTION into the caution tape that you see on the flaps. 

For the sentiment I used the "Under Construction" that came with the Construction Kids File  and using the Birthday Boy Cake Smash File, I grouped the "1st Birthday Wishes" to the left of the sentiment and then was able to Print and Cut the sentiment. 

I love these "Card In A Box" series. I see a ton of them showing up all over the internet. Even though they are all basically the same design, they all look so unique from each other! That is why I love them so much. Make Sure to download the template and make your own Kreation and don't forget to hop over to my Scrappy friends sites!!

Until my next Kreation! Love Ya Peeps!
