Card in a Box

Well spring has finally arrived here in the UK. It is so nice to see the sun and spring flowers but it also means I can see all the jobs that need doing round the house and garden as well! Hence my lack of posts. We're doing a fairly major revamp of the garden to get rid of some of the very overgrown bushes, and I've had two large conifers taken out, which means a lot of empty space. I am going to put some more shrubs in but a lot less and more grass instead as it will be easier to manage.

Anyway when I did spend some time in the craft room I succumbed to making a card in a box which seem to be all the rage at the moment. To the extent that Craftwork Cards were selling kits for them on TV the other day.  Mine is not a kit - I made it and it is really quite easy.

I used the pretty Sweet Sorbet papers from Sale-a- Bration and the  co-ordinating stamp set Petal Parade.


 The leaves were punched out using the Owl Builder punch. The base card is Calypso Coral and I used Crisp Canteloupe, Pool Party and Pistachio pudding inks. The Happy Birthday  is Label Love with the matching punch.


  1. Very pretty card in a box. Love the papers and sring like colours. Gorgeous. I saw these on C&C too. Very simple to make so can't see why you would need an expensive kit! Have a good weekend in the garden. Hugs, Carol S.xx

  2. These box cards just blow my head off! You say it was easy, but surely, not!! One thing IS for sure, Sue, it is gorgeous and the recipient will think it was very hard, so ssshhh!! Hugs, Darnell
