Park Bench Kitty Cat Card in a Box

Hello everyone and happy Monday! Today, I'm sharing a cute and colorful  "card in a box" that I just love!  It's a folding pop-up card that creates a park scene with flowers, a bench and a kitty cat. You could make this for a friend, teacher, co-worker or family member for almost any occasion. Take a look ...

Park Bench Folding Card with Kitty Cat

I made this with a cutting file by Quietfire called Park Bench Kitty Card in a Box and the Echo Park Endless Summer Collection designed by Lori Whitlock (links below).

For the box section of the card, I used a pretty green paper by Bazzill called Kiwi Crush. For the flowers & the kitty, I used some Endless Summer 6x6 pattern papers and white card stock for the bench.

I added some bright red enamel dots to the tree and for the sides ... a piece of Bella Blvd Hearts and Ombre in guacamole.
The box itself will fold flat but the bench does not. However, I found 2 videos on how to make (and tweak!) these Card in a Box projects. 

To make the original version, click HERE.  To see a second option that allows you to fold the bench flat for mailing, click HERE.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

I always want to make my photos the center of attention so a grid design is perfect for that.  The page above will hold 3 or 4 photos, depending on whether you want to use the white space for journaling or a photo mat.

I love the bright colors and pop of blue in Doodlebug's Fun at the Park collection. This kit will show you a few fun techniques for incorporating folded cards and pockets on a page that slides in a plastic protector.

The cute castle card above flips up to allow for two photos inside. The instructions that come with the kit will explain how to cut your page protector to access the card from outside the plastic. Page protectors and albums are not included in the kit.

Here's the cute pocket that's on another page. Photo mats, park maps, tickets or other memorabilia can be tucked inside.  Again, the instructions will explain how to access the pocket's contents from outside the plastic page protector.

Flexi Bee Card with Lori Whitlock

Hey guys and happy Wednesday! If you follow me, then you know I often use different national and world days for inspiration. So when I realized Thursday is World Bee Day, I knew that would be the theme for my next project. World Bee Day is all about spreading awareness of the significance of bees and other pollinators for our survival. To read more about this important day, please click here.

I wanted to make a cute card for a friend, so I searched Lori Whitlock's site for a cutting file with a bee. I found an adorable one called Flexi Card Bee (link below).

Bee Card with pop-up wings

I chose the pretty flower & beehive prints from the Simple Stories Full Bloom collection and black and white card stock. Lori's file has the 1 set of wings but since I wanted to add more dimension, I added a 2nd set so they popped off the card.

Bee Card instructions

I did this by cutting an extra black bee outline from the cutting file and found some white vellum to use on the backside of the wings.

Bee Card instructions

With my scissors, I snipped around the wings so that all the extra parts were removed and I was left with a 2nd pair of wings. (Sorry little bee!)

Bee Card with pop up wings & instructions

I adhered the white vellum to the backside of the wings using my Zip Dry Paper Glue. 

Bee Card with pop-up wings

Then I added a small piece of black foam tape to the center of the backside of the wings and attached them to the card. (FYI - this black tape is great for dark colored papers.) Aaaaand done!

Wouldn't this pretty card be wonderful for a birthday, graduation, anniversary, or Mother's Day? Or you could use it to send words of encouragement, well wishes or a "thinking of you" message. Don't forget to add a funny "bee" pun! Here are some ideas ...

  • Happy Bee-day
  • We Bee-long Together  
  • Always Bee Yourself
  • We're Meant to Bee
  • Have a Bee-utiful Day
  • Bee-lieve in Yourself
  • Bee Happy
  • Everything will Bee OK 

Below are the links for the products used. I hope you'll give this fun card a try and thanks for stopping by!
