If you have a pizza lover in your life, then this cute little card is the one to make! The fun part is, you can customize your pizza to what you want on it. For this one I used the pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms and green pepper cut files. The green peppers just gave it that little pop of color.
Choose the Heaviest
I recommend using the heaviest weight 12×12 card-stock paper you can find. This card is a little delicate on the bottom side, around the box edges. Most of my heavy weight papers come from American Crafts, Bazzill or Tim Holtz. Those three, are a few of my favorites. They are thick, sturdy and hold up nicely.
I love the back of the box card! I chose to use a print designer paper that looks like something a pizza parlor would use. You could just use a light colored paper if you wanted that area for writing a message. This card folds up nicely, just remember to tuck the box tabs down and gently fold the pizza part and the slice up.
An envelope cut file is also included for your card. So there’s no guessing game, trying to figure out the right dimensions.
Materials I used for the Pizza Box Card:
- American Crafts 12×12 card stock
- Scrap pieces for the pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms and green peppers
- Patterned paper from an older paper pad
- Tim Hotlz Distress Inks
- Memento Black ink
- Sponges (For sponging color around the edges of the card and other pieces)
- Happy Birthday stamp by Fiskars
- Scotch permanent mounting tape
- Aleene’s Tacky Glue
- Scotch Advanced Tape Glider
- Silhouette Came0
Inking the Card Edge Pieces
I had a lot of fun putting this card together. It was easy and didn’t take me much time to cut out the pieces and inking around all the edges. Inking the edges of your paper pieces helps to give them more depth and character.
If you’ve never tried any of Mary’s svg design cuts, you should give them a try. I know you will fall in love with them, happy crafting!
