Birthday Butterfly Card In a Box

Here is my post at the Classy Cards 'n Such blog today.....
I hope you will join us this week in our challenge!!

Hello Classy Friends, Diane here with you today.
This week our Classy Cards 'n Such challenge is "Happy Birthday"
What could be any easier then that...I hope you will join "us"!!

For my card today, I wanted to step out of the "normal "A2 card "zone"
and create something a bit different.
I am sure you all have seen the "Card In A Box" cards that have been popping up all over.
I love the look of these cards and after receiving my new Papermania Bellisima papers, 
I knew I wanted to do one of these cards!!
The papers are very soft, pastel colors.....so pretty!!

Other then the base card stock, 
all my panels and butterflies were cut from the Bellisima papers.

(back of card to sign)

The dies used for the front panels of the card are Memory Box "Precious Butterflies".
The butterflies "flying" out of the box are Joy Crafts "Butterfly Trio"

For a bit of "bling", I added a few Lavender Pearls to some of the butterflies.

If you are wondering how I got my butterflies to "float"....
I cut a few acrylic strips from the packaging some of our products come in
and you would normally throw away...

One of the unique things about this card, is it folds flat for mailing!

A few other products used in the making of my card are:
