Hi everyone today im bringing you my first tutorial for Carley Duff bringing you great products from Creata 

Ingredients :
Box card blank ~ by Creata Mirror board ~ By Creata
Paper page ~ by Creata Image ~ By Sherri Baldy Stamps
Silk board ~ by Creata A selection of dies ~ by Joy
Lace stickers ~ By Creata
Double sided tape , Wet glue a few gems and 2 brads

                                                         PIC 1

When you receive your box card blanks they will be flat with all the appropriate score lines and cuts . The first thing you need to do is fold all of the score lines making sure that the two triangles are folded inwards towards the centre of your card ~~~ pic 1


Cut 2 panels of your card base card each measuring 6 x 12.5 cm and 2  
panels of your chosen papers each measuring 5.5 x 12 cm.
Mat and layer your papers onto the card using double sided tape ~~~ Pic 2


Now you are ready to stick the panels to you box card base ~~~ Pic 3

PIC 4 

For the Central panel you can use a greeting or a image . I have chosen a Digi image by Sherri Baldy stamps . You will need to make sure that what every you choose is no wider than 7.5 cm as the centre panel measures 7.5 x 12.5 cm .
I have matted my image onto the same base card stock I used for the panels . Then stuck to the centre panel using double sided tape. ~~ Pic 4


Now to create some embellishments and a greeting for your box card. ~~ pic 5


                                           PIC 7

For the greeting stamp and die cut with a die shape of your choice. I have used a scalloped circle .
 Next using a shaped die ,cut 2 of the same sized shapes from your
card stock stick together at angles to create a new shape The shape I have used is by Joy~~~ pic 6 & 7.


Using a set of 3 sizes of flower dies by Joy cut 2 sets from your card stock fixing each set together either with a brad or if you prefer with wet glue and use a gem at the centre . ( I have used a brad ) ~~~~ Pic 8


I have chosen to use some silver mirror board and cut 2 flourishes using one of the flourish dies also by Joy , 2 lengths of lace ribbon stickers from Creata and I cut a couple of the flowers from the Creata papers I have used for my card box ~~~ Pic 9

Now all your embellishments are ready its time to Decorate !!!
At this stage you can push the 2 side panels into the centre of the card so they meet in the middle for a better idea on how you would like to place your embellishments  ~~~ pic 10

PIC 10

Remember to try where you would like to place them before you stick them down . You will find wet glue better for sticking your flowers and flourishes down .

PIC 11

Once all your glues are dry and embellishments have been added its now time to create the box ….. On all 4 of the squares on your box card ether apply wet glue or
extra strong Double sided tape . I am using wet glue for extra strength ~~~ Pic 11

Fold the squares around the side of your box card as shown in pic 12  and stick into position .

Your card is now ready !!! You can push the side together to lay the card flat so it will be easier to fit into a envelope for posting . I have added a few gems for extra sparkle .

Top tip 
Make sure you decorate your card before you assemble or you might just have trouble !!!
