Card in a Box

Well it's all systems go in our house with the reno's amd it was time to pack up the craft studio last week ready for  new paint, carpet and a much needed redesigning of my storage!  But just before the big pack up I managed to get in there and play with some paper and dies.

I have seen a lot of "Cards in a Box" designed by some talented Stampin Up ladies on Pintrest and on You Tube. So I decided to have a go at creating some of my own for some special birthdays.

The actual process of creating the card base was so easy and then the fun really starts with the embellishment and theming.  Can I say I think I am addicted and can't wait to get back into my refurbished craft studio to make some more.

So here is what I created:

The debut card was for gorgeous Great Niece for her first birthday and the second and slightly larger one was for my dear friend Angie for her 50th.

I must say I did like the slightly larger version as I had a little more area to work with and could incorporate some larger die cut elements.

So here are some close ups of the two cards:

Elsie's 1st Birthday

Angie's 50th Card

It was so much fun creating these cards using some of my favourite Echo Park and My Minds Eye papers, MFT die-namics, Elizabeth Design dies and Simon Says Stamps and Dies.

Here are the links to the tutorials I used to get started:
