April 16, 2014 Birthday Box Card


Punch for cupcake MS, Balloon Dies by IO, DP from my stash, bling from AMuse Studio

This is my second card using the "box" card design.  A couple of weeks ago my friend Patti came over for a play day and one of her projects was the box card.  they are really popular right now, not difficult to make (if you have a good teacher) and lots of fun to decorate.  I have lots of ideas in my head - butterflies, flowers, snowflakes, birds, hearts for Valentine or anniversary, the ideas are endless.  It really works well if you have double sided printed DP - you know it will match.  Thanks for the fun project Pat.  Challenges:
     2 Cute Ink - Celebration
     Digi Chooseday - use 2 different papers
     Crafting from the Heart  -  use yellow
     Through the Purplehaze - anything goes

That was a fun day, and I'm ready for another one! Look at you go, girl! LOVE all of the happy balloons! Great job, and I'm sure it will be the big hit with whoever receives it!!! Thanks for sharing, and inspiring me to get my craft on again...I've been slacking. Life and work keep calling me away from fun. Hugs!
