Flower Series II

 I am home this morning just waiting to head to the Dentist to have a tooth pulled!!!  Yikes!  It is NOT my favorite thing to do!  So, to keep me from thinking about it tooo much...I thought I would post another Card in a Box- the Flower Series.   I made this and sent it to a friend who is recovering from surgery.  This is the Petite box that I have posted a link to the instructions in one of my previous posts.  I love them because they can fit in a standard envelope.  

 I love the Bunny die from Impression Obsession!  The Bunnies come in a bunch of different poses.  They are just small enough to fit on these type of cards.  You can hide them anywhere.  I have their cat dies too!  The flowers stamp and punch is from Stampin Up. 

 Here is another shot of the card where I added a little "Get Well" sentiment.  I used Graphic 45 paper to decorate the box.  Yes, it is my favorite paper!  Well, that is it... Guess I better head to the Dentist....boohoo...!  Can't wait to have this over with!!!  Bye!

Flower Series Card in a Box

 Tanya Bell has a tutorial out that gives directions to make the Pop Up Card in a Box but in a smaller size!  I love it because this size will fit in a standard envelope!  You can check out her tutorial here-

I used a lot of Graphic 45 paper to make these Thank you cards!  You don't have as much room to decorate the inside of the box so you will have to be creative.  Hope you don't mind this long post.  Here are a few more pictures-

Happy New Year 2014!

I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year!  Ours was quiet but that is my favorite kind- celebrate from the comfort of your home by the fireplace!  I think we did fall asleep before the ball dropped....

It appears I am not done making Cards in a Box!  I do love this technique!  I am using it to make a Thank you card for a friend.  I used several Sizzix dies to make this Seaside Scene.  I also used Stampin UP stamps for the seashells by the seashore.  Wow, say that 5 times fast!!!

I used the Stampin UP tag punch for the light house light.  I hand cut the lighthouse itself.  Can you see the flying Sea Gull?  It bobs around and really gives the illusion of flight.  I love it!!  Rats!  I forgot to take a picture of the back!  It had a really nice sentiment!

You can go to SplitCoast Stampers and see Dina's fabulous tutorial on Cards in a Box.  She calls them Pop Up Cards in a Box.  You can find it here-

I am off to work on more Thank You cards!  I did find instructions for a smaller Card in a Box on Pinterest.  I will go try it out and let you know how they come out!!
