I had great pleasure in making this card for a special friend - I made it shortly after I did my first box card, but could not show I until now as the recipient did not receive it until late in April, by which time I was temporarily not blogging.
I altered the size from the original dimensions so that it would fit a standard envelope here, so it is a bit smaller than my first one.
My friend loves her garden, so there were flowers on the outside of the closed box, stamped, embossed and coloured, and grounded with lace washi tape.
On the front drop down flap I gold embossed the sentiment and added some ribbon and gold washi tape.
I continued the washi tape right around, but on the side flaps I placed a die cut cat - one in each of the colours that her cats have been/are.
At the front of the box I placed a row of flowers (this stamp is an old Hero Arts one, part of a three stamp set, and one of my original stamps!!) They were stamped and embossed on a scrap of smooshed card, the leaves over coloured in green, and all covered with layers of WoS.
Behind that were the numbers, some stars glued onto acetate, and a cup cake, as my friend is a fantastic cook!
The image of a cake plate on the back flap, was on the dp that I used, and I trimmed it so that I could feature it. The edges of all the layers of paper were sponged with Bundled Sage DI.
My friend loves her card, and it is still 'on display'.
