Box card

Work is rather stress full at the moment and I find that doing crafty card projects is just the perfect de-stresser. As it is my daughter's birthday next week and she wanted vouchers for her favourite clothes shop I decided to make her a gift box/card, just a little more exciting than just handing her an envelope...
I used Melissa Frances papers and stamps by Crafty Individuals and Tim Holtz.

This is the outside of the box.

This is what you see when you open the card.

Here you can see the inside. I made a little pouch to put the gift token in.
This finally is the little tag I made to go with it.

If you want to know how to make the box, there is a great tutorial (and a way more beautiful box )here

What a stunning gift/box Astrid. The papers and images are gorgeous, The colours are so pretty and I'm sure your daughter will love it not least because it was her Mum who made it.

I've been making birthday cards for my Daughter too (I had to make one from our Son to his sister too, lol) as it's her birthday a couple of days after we return from our Welsh break next week so needed to get them done before we go.

I'm hoping to catch your Snazzy project before we leave but if I don't manage it I shall leave a comment when I get back.

Lovely box card Astrid. What a great idea. I clicked on your link for the tutorial and it said the page could not be found. It was in another language but I have seen that page before. Would love to see this.
Take care and hope the stress is under control.
Lesley :)

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
