Fast Card in the Box.

OK so I know you are groaning now. Not another Card in the Box?! But really, I was time poor and had to come up with something "special" fast, so I turned to the trusty Card in the Box.

So how did I make a fast version of this card? I already had some small flowers and a butterfly stamped in Blushing Bride lying on my table so I picked colours to compliment them.
 Strawberry Slush, Blushing Bride and Gold.
The box was made in Strawberry Slush Cardstock.
I used Designer paper from the All Abloom Paper Stack and Gold Soiree Designer Paper to decorate.

 I stamped lots of flowers (5) from Flowershop Stamp set in Strawberry Slush and punched them out.
Then I used my retired Secret Garden framelit for the Mossy Meadow leaves (5) and Pistachio Pudding Bird Builder Punch leaves (3).

The "50" was made using a non-SU product with gold glimmer card stock and framed with Gold Foil punched with the Scallop Circle Punch.
I also punched out a couple of small Stars in gold glimmer card.

 I used the Make a Wish from Perfect Pennants that I have used in every box lately as it didn't require any thinking out. LOL. Diamantes on the flower centres and I was done in record time!

 And I was ready for my friend's Birthday Masquerade Party.

So I absolutely promise there will be NO Card in the Box Card next time!! Actually I have a really cute card sitting on my table right now that I can't wait to show you. I will just give you one hint shall I.....

Now I have your curiosity up... please be sure to pop back next week and have a look. Thanks for stopping by. Vx


  1. I still love cards in a a box. Your 'fast version' looks extremely special. I imagine your friend loved it. And that was good seeing you all masked up! Lol! Bet it was a fun party :)
