Box Card in a box

This week I have been making a box card for the 13th birthday of a close friends daughter later this month.

She has recently taken up cross stitch so I wanted to include that in the design.

This is what I came up with.

The box
Made from A3 cardstock, Ribbon from stash, Label cut using 
Sissix Labels Ornate Framelits die.
Coloured using Stampin Up Rich Razzlebury inkpad, stamped with same with
Flower stamp and dragonfly coming from IndigoBlu freebie magazine set and
the Alphabet a Stampin up set.

The Box Card and Box
The 13 is Cross stitched on plastic canvas
The Dolphin cross stitch is there because she went swimming with
dolphins on holiday a couple of years ago and was a magazine freebie from 6-7 years ago.

Embossed panels are made using core'dinations cardstock
and embossed with Design Objectives folders
Used Stampin Up Strawberry Blush inkpad for distressing
and stamping of flowers which are using Stampin Up Petite Petals
stamps and punch.

Butterflies were cut using Spellbinders shapeabilities Les Papillion's dies and
 Stampin up Strawberry Blush cardstock.
Gems from stash.
Thanks for looking.

  1. What a pretty card Mandi. Did you make it from scratch or is it from a kit? I'm going to make a card in a box for a wedding anniversary and have been looking for tutorials.

    1. Hi Pamela. I made myself. Apparently there are tutorials on youtube but I saw some at a community market and having looked at how they are put together I just went and played.

  2. What a lovely card, thank you so much for joining in with our challenge over at The Cupboard Trilogy Challenge Blog.
