So, last night my mood was, well lets just say "rock bottom low"
and guess what I woke this morning with the same "rock bottom low" mood!!
So I grabbed a cuppa and started to look around at blogs, pinterest etc...
and all of a sudden out of nowhere pops up this blog with this wonderful
tutorial on how to make a "Card In A Box".....
it was LOVE at first sight...it was meant to be...it made me excited...
it took me out of the rotten mood zone and put me back on track!!
so, now I have to tell you I haven't been this excited since...well I don't know when!!
and I also have to warn you that this is a "heavy picture" post!!
I tried to take pictures from several different angles....
I made this particular card for two reasons...
1. I want to send something nice to the nursing home my Aunt Janice is in...
something she can set out and enjoy!
2. I have been racking my brain of what to come up with this week for the
challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs which is "add a flourish"...I think I got it nailed!!
I used Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish!!
This the back where you can stamp your sentiment, write a message
and the back panel is what gives your card it's stability .
This is the card folded up to mail...
yes, it folds up "FLAT" to mail...
you will just need to make an envelope large enough to hold
the little pieces that are sticking out!!!
this is what it looks like before you decorate it
(pardon my mess on my desk)
so, do you want to try one yourself??
you do...great...go here for the printed tutorial and
for the video tutorial as well!!
