I finally got a chance to try my hand at the card-in-a-box design that is all over blog land. What is so cool about this design is that it truly folds up and fits into a regular A2 envelope. Now, I'll admit...this one didn't because there were so many layers and embellies! But, you could design it with mailing in mind and make it much flatter. Since it was going inside a box anyway, I couldn't help myself from adding all kinds of elements!
I followed the directions from two different tutorials to create this beauty. Written directions from Mommy Stamper as well as the video tutorial from ChicnScratch. The base is Coastal Cabana and the box is decorated with a Crumb Cake pattern from the Fresh Prints DSP stack. I wanted it to resemble a wildflower bouquet and selected the colors of Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder, Coastal Cabana and Daffodil Delight.
The Flower Shop stamp set coordinates so well with the Petite Petals set! Add a little Gold Foil Sheet with a pearl to the center and it's done. This really didn't take that long to make--it's not as difficult as it looks...shhhhh, don't tell!
