I am very happy with the way the decorated card in a box turned out. When I showed it to my son he looked at it and said "Wow, that's bright!"
It's probably bright because of the glitter from the SAB glimmer paper. I actually had a difficult time taking a picture because very picture I took was over exposed. The exposure of the picture above is not the way I like it but it's the best I could do.
The basic box is made using Mint Macaron card stock, and the panels are decorated with the Succulents DSP matted with Whisper White cardstock
Now comes the fun part - decorating.
This was done using the stamp set "Oh So Succulent" with its coordinating Succulent framelit/die set as well as the small butterfly punch.
This is a close up of the box front The die cuts were adhered to 1/2 by 4" pieces of Window Sheets which were adhered to the inserts using a hot glue gun. I tried glue dots but they did not hold well.
This is a side view. On some of the panels I die cut some Whisper White stitched shapes and adhered the die cuts on that. I liked that better because the DSP is quite busy and the die cuts were getting lost in its busyness.
All the back panel needs right now is a message.
The card in a box, although it looks bulky and 3D actually folds flat and fits into a standard A2 envelope
