I've Been Wanting to Try One of These!
Card in a box here, card in a box there. I've been seeing these adorable card in a boxes everywhere. Today, for The Cutting Cafe, I had a chance to make one. And, they are as much fun as they look!
The fun part about these cards is they fold flat and fit in an envelope for mailing. This is the large box. The Card In a Box cutting file has two sizes and two envelopes that come with it. There's also a Card in a Box Embellishment set that I used on the card.
Here's a side angle of the card in a box.
I did some stamping on it, because I love to stamp. The stamps are from Unity Stamp Company. The set is called, "I Ruff You". I plan to give this card to my BFF. We're both huge dog lovers, so it needed to have a dog theme to it and these stamps were just what I needed for the card. Here's a close up of the stamped images:
These cards are so fun because they can be embellished many different ways. Here's a closeup of the embellishments I added, all from the Cutting Cafe's Card in a Box Embellishment Set,
The pretty yellow button in the center of the flower is from Pinque Peacock. It's a 3/4 inch fabric covered button.
I bought the papers at my LSS for $3.00! They are a 6x6 stack from DCWV. The box itself, cut on my Silhouette, is made from white Close To My Heart cardstock.
This may be my first card in a box, but it's definitely not my last. You've got to try one of these!
