Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

Card in a Box

If you troll the internet and others blogs often, you probably have seen these adorable
Card in a box designs.  What fun they are to make, and the best thing is, they fold flat for mailing.

Here  is a link to the directions for this card on Split Coast Stampers.

The first set of directions make a card that needs a 6x9 envelope to mail, but just
below those instructions are the measurements for a standard A2 card.
This is a great link because it has step by step pictures AND a video.

Here is my card.

This is the front of the card.

Front turned slightly.

The back of the card.  Room to write a message and sign.

Card folded closed (hard to photograph, but it does fold

Looking down into the card, so you can see how the decorations you
add to the box look.

Card Recipe

Stamps - A gift for you - Penny Black (hedge hog) (1447H)
Sentiment on the back - Stampendous (47598)
Papers - It's a celebration by Carta Bella 6x6 inch pad
Base card is mint green pearlecent card stock
Dies - Candles on the sides - Elizabeth Craft Designs (732 Candles)
Punches - Party Hats and Cake - Paper Shapers, Cupcakes, EK Success 
Small butterflies are the cutouts from an EK Success border punch.
I used small strips of Acrylic to mount them on so they wiggle when you open the
card, giving the illusion of flight.
Balloons is an old stamp no longer available.
Flowers - Prima tiny flowers
Stickles, Star Dust, yellow, red, and green.

The box goes together quickly and decorating is so much fun.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Until later.
