Hello hello hello! Today I want to share with you really lovely card in the box. But this one is slightly different than those you’ve probably seen already as it’s in the shape of a rectangle.
For the base, you need a piece of cardstock which measures 11-1/2 x 4-1/8 inches ( half of A4). I’ve used Whisper White. Score the base at 3-7/8, 5-1/2, 9-3/8 & 11″ on the long side. Then score at 2-1/8 on a short side. You will also need two extra pieces of cardstock for the inserts. Each piece should measure 4-7/8 x 3/4″ and need to be scored at 1/2″ on each side. If I find a time I will add a template to make it easier to follow.
To decorate the box I’ve used beautiful paper from Moonlight DSP Paper Stack. It’s gorgeous design in new in-colour Hello Honey. For the flowers, I’ve used Petite Petals and Flower Shop stamp sets with coordinating punches. The colours I’ve chosen Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon and Strawberry Slush.
The main sentiment is from Label Love – stamped in Hello Honey and punched with Artisan Label Punch. As the backing for the sentiment, I’ve used Chalk Talk stamp set and framelits, and banner stamped with chevron design from Work Of Art. Both stamped in Blackberry Bliss. On the sides, you can see tiny “celebrate” circles from Starburst Sayings in Strawberry Slush. The other sentiment: “for my wonderful mother” comes from one of our retired stamp sets: Delightful Dozen. Truly hope you like this project.
Thank you for stopping by,
