Card in a Box using Ivy Lane


I have a pile of photos to post on my blog over the coming weeks (FINALLY!)

This was a very hectic spring...  I'll be showing some of the photos from the craziness too but for today - in honor of my mom's birthday- I'll show you the "Card in a Box" I designed for my club project last month.  I am mailing this for my mom's birthday (yep.. late again.  birthday is today and it's just being mailed today.  Lucky for me she doesn't really pay attention to my blog ;) )

First of all- I got the instructions for this particular sized box from Split Coast Stampers.  The final assembled size of their box was 6x6.5 inches.  That is all fine and dandy but it doesn't fit any size envelope I own.  SO - I cut the original pattern a half inch shorter in height so when you make all your cuts and folds it fits a 6x6 envelope.

Supplies used:  slate cardstock, colonial white and sweet leaf cardstock,  Ivy lane paper packArt Philosophy Cricut cartridge, Hooray Bouquet stamp set, and ink colors (blush, hollyhock, cocoa and sweet leaf)
  6x6 envelopes (while supplies last) they are only $1.50 for 10

I took the photo with my phone so the colors are a little off...  but you get the idea I hope ;)

Check back this week for more artwork!
