Card in a box... for a special 50th Birthday
It was my Sister-in-Laws 50th Birthday recently so I made her this lovely card in a box. The card in a box is the one card design I've probably made the most. I think they are unique and really fun to make!
The box folds flat and fits into a C6 envelope for easy posting. Just make sure you don't forget to put a large letter stamp on these when posting!
I used the Flower Shop Stamp set with the coordinating Pansy Punch and the Petite Petals Stamp Set with coordinating Petite Petals Punch. I also added some butterflies using the Bitty Butterfly Punch.
I made my own background paper by using the Hopeful Thoughts stamp set by stamping the leafy image in Versamark Ink onto Whisper White cardstock. I then sprinkled Silver Stampin' Embossing Powder all over the stamped image. I then used the Heat Tool to set the embossing powder to give it a raised, shiny finish.
Finally, I added the Happy Birthday sentiment and some Rhinestones and then wrapped her birthday presents in coordinating wrapping paper and Lost Lagoon Stitched Satin Ribbon.
