Valentine - Card in a Box

Hi friends ~

I've been meaning to pop by and show you my very first Card in a Box all week.  It wasn't the easiest to photograph but here it is.

I've used Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Whisper White c/s, papers and inks.  There is also some heat and stick powder, and dazzling diamonds, white heat embossing and of course the delicious Silver Glimmer paper.  A little touch of Cherry Cobbler and the white Stampin' Chalk Marker brightens things up a bit.

Stamp sets used are Hearts a Flutter and Perfect Pennants.  I used several different framelits and dies - if you want more info feel free to email me, or leave a comment and I'll be happy to help you.

I had a hard time keeping it flat as it's been open on the dining table since Valentine's day.  It fits perfectly in a C6 envelope for posting - what an awesome 'wow' card to receive in the mail!  I followed a super simple video tute from Tanya Bell, you can find it here.

We have a celebration happening at our house this weekend.  The twins are having their second birthday. They're not really sure what all the fuss is about, but I have no doubt they're going to enjoy candles and cake!  Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you enjoy your weekend as much as I'm going to enjoy mine!

  5. Patrice, this one of the prettiest I've seen! I made one for Valentine's Day, but never posted it because it had so much retired product in it. My recipient just gushed over it! They are lots of fun!
