A card in a box – is one of my favourite things to make for someone, I’ve blogged about this type of card in the past and how much I love making them. It’s hard not to smile when you take it from its envelope and open it up and it just springs to life bursting with colour and shapes.
For this card I featured the Happy Birthday Gorgeous bundle and I teamed it up with the Foil Frenzy papers that are part of the same suite. I used Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist Card stock and also Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper to cut out the large numbers.
I used a tutorial from Sandi MacIver, her dimensions are great, it’s not a huge card and if you position your ‘pop-ups’ correctly then the card will fit into a C6 envelope. Although for this card I wanted it to be bursting so I made an envelope to fit the card, for the envelope I also used the Foil Frenzy Card stock so that it all ties in and coordinates with the card.
Hope you enjoy my card…
