Are you the sort of person that has to follow the latest trend? Did you buy bubblegum jeans or hypercolour t-shirts 5 mins after they arrived on the shop? You’re always so cool and on-trend, right? OR are you like me and fight the good fight about NOT being a conformist …….but then end up joining in anyways…. usually when the trend is on the way out? Yep that’s usually me – but not any more!!!!! Today I’m bringing you the latest trend in the paper craft world now – when it’s HOT – that’s right -Card in a box. So how cute? It folds down for easy postage and then pops up and reveals something really special.
Next time I’ll make sure the sentiment is a little smaller so it doesn’t hang over the edge when folded.
Here’s a few of the items I used to make this little cutie:
Flower Shop # 130939 Wood mount #130942 Clear mount
Happy Congratulations # 133044 Wood mount #133047 Clear mount
Card Stock: Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper (free with purchase of $90 or more) #133521 Sweet Sorbet
Email if you have any questions about any other items used 🙂
I was thinking this was going to be a really challenging card to make but guess what? Easypeasy. I followed this tutorial from UK Demonstrator Monica Gale who is simply amazing and an all round sweet heart. (If you’re not following her blog you totally should.) Here we are at last years Stampin’ Up! Grand Vacation in Utah showing the love.
So this card is actually for my beautiful niece Courtney and her wonderful new fiancée Michael who are starting out their lives together and who got engaged on New Years eve. I wanted to make her something special and therefore this card has taken a little longer then expected (*yikes*) but it is now on it’s way to her in the mail – along with a little gift. 😉 Congratulations Hon!!
