Hello There!

Just wanted to say hey to all you who follow my blog! There are some new faces over there, and I'd like to thank all of you for visiting when you do!

The other day (Sat), I made my first card box. A friend of my mother came over and bought some of my cards, but this card wouldn't fit into an envelope because of the big puffy flower on the front. Good ol' Splitcoast Stampers and its awesome resource section to the rescue! The first box was too short for the hanging leaf on the card which then led me to have to do some math and finagling to make a box that would work. Here's what I came up with:

Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish Die, EK Success Flower Power punch, MS border and butterfly punch

I had to add that yellow paper to cover up the big gap I had when I changed the dimensions of the back. And those pearls were used to cover a bad score line! :D

  1. Hi Trina! Congrats on selling your cards! What a pretty box you made! I love the color combo and the flowers and butterfly! I never think to do this - it's a much nicer presentation than a manilla padded envie!

  2. Sooo pretty!!! Love it!!!

  3. Well Trina... even with all your snafu's making this, it turned out beautifully...they say there's no mistake in art! lol Congrats on selling some cards... good excuse to hit the craft store! ;D

  4. Ok, I love and want that flourish die. This card is so bright and happy! I am impressed at your ability to change the dimensions on the box. I can never do that!

  5. Great card box and cover up job on the boo boo's. I do that too, add things to cover up tiny mistakes. Love the bright spring colors too.
    Thanks for joining in on the challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs.
