I'm not usually a huge yellow girl, but I loved how the calypso coral & pool party flowers looked with the so saffron DSP. Here's a closer look at the flowers (btw. the yellow flower is actually stamped in daffodil delight).
& one more from the top, so you can see the inserts.
Long Rectangle Card in a Box Cutting Template
Finished Size when flat: 114cm x 10.5cm (5-1/2 x 4-1/8inches). Front & back panels are 10cm wide, Side panels are 4cm wide.
Cut Base: 29.7cm x 10.5cm (cut A4 sheet in half long-way).
Score base: 10cm, 14cm, 24cm & 28cm on long side. Score at 5.5cm on short side
Inserts: Cut at 12cm x 2cm. Score at 1cm from either end
If you're more visual, here's the template I put together. Broken lines are score lines. Red lines are cutting lines. Leave the section with blue score line unfolded - this is the back panel.
Check out Monica Gale's fab video tutorial for visual instructions on how to make a general card in a box. Follow the same principles - just substitute my cutting & scoring measurements.
Prefer inches?The project dimensions were created in cm's, so they don't translate to inches as neatly as I'd like. The converted dimensions are as follows. I will post a neater solution if I have time to think!

I hope you have a go at making a long card in a box with my measurements. I think the longer length gives great opportunities to create a bigger scene. If you have any questions, just ask & don't forget to coment & pin if you like the project. Thanks for visiting & pop back soon.
