A Card in A Box - Flower Seeds

Afternoon Everyone

Two posts in one day ... I must be doing something right :)

In fact, what I have to share is a card in a box that I made last month so I'm lagging way behind.

Although I had seen and admired many of these before, I'd never gotten round to making one myself and if it hadn't been for Billy-Jane's challenge for us UKPC members for May, I doubt I ever would. It took several aborted attempts and a lot of head scratching before I constructed something I was halfway happy with.

The base is made from white cardstock, the matting is blue and strips of white punched with Tonic's daisy edger decorate the inside of the box. Everything else came from Tilda's Garden Party paper pad.

Looking down into the box giving a glimpse of the construction and the pretty punched edging.

The sentiment is a favourite Verve stamp.

Now that I've successfully completed one card in a box, I'm thinking that I'd like to try making a Christmas themed one ... just not right away :)

I hope you've had a good day. Thanks for taking the time to read my post - I'm planning to be back tomorrow with another one.

Happy Crafting

What a gorgeous card in a box! It looks really complicated to make, but the result is beautiful. One day I might take the plunge and have a go at making one. xx

Girgeous card Elizabeth. Strangely enough, much as I love to see them, I have no desire to try making one myself :o)
