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!
I have a few different views of my very first Card In a Box from The Cutting Cafe.


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!
