“Card In A Box - Flowers”


After seeing numerous versions of the gorgeous “Card In A Box” card, I had to give it a go!
I found a really informative tutorial by Tina Weller aka "The Serene Stamper" on Pinterest.

Once assembled, the box is then designed to lay flat to allow for posting.

For the colour theme, I decided on two gorgeous colours Melon Mambo and Calypso Coral, with hints of buttery Daffodil Delight.

  

On Tina’s Tutorial, she used 2 strips across the middle of the box to adhere the flowers to, but I used 3 strips {or beams}.

 

Not to confuse you further … instead of using strips of cardstock to adhere the flowers to, I chose to use thick clear plastic, re-purposed from the packaging on ink cartridges.
As you can see from the undercarriage of the box, I adhered the plastic strips to the cardboard “beams”, once adhered; I then cut off the excess plastic.


 
 
The flowers are stamped from the “Flower Shop” stamp set, and layered between Dimensionals.
For the centre of the flowers, I stamped in Daffodil Delight a small stamp from the “Hello, Lovely” stamp set, onto Daffodil Delight cardstock, punched from the “Boho Blossom” Punch.

On the reverse side of the box, I stamped the words “You can never have too much happy” from the “Yippee-Skippee!” stamp set, with Melon Mambo and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Markers.
As the box can be folded flat, the back panel leaves room for a special message for the lucky recipient.

 

For the birds, I punched one complete bird from the “Bird Builder” punch, and then punched a second wing, that sat behind the bird, to make it look as though they were flying.

 

This card was a great way of using up scraps, as you can see from the list or papers I used!

I really enjoyed making my first “Card In A Box”, and am making another version tomorrow, so watch this space …
