Card in A Box…and Best Laid Plans

By With No Comments

So last week was busy visiting with friends and picking up some fun tips and tricks for my Stampin’ Up! business at the Stampin’ Up! 2014 Convention Inspire, Create, Share. I will post more photos in the next while as I’m able. I thought I was so good, uploading photos to my site that I could then whip up a blog post while on the road. HOWEVER…I have learned that I should have just done the whole blog post ahead of time, as the display on my laptop died while I was in Salt Lake City – mid post! I’m taking it to the computer doctor later to see if anything can be done. SO – now I’m home again, and can finish this post for you!

card-in-a-boxThis is a card in a box that I created as a potential project for the Scrapbook & Cards Today blog – featuring the Flower Patch photopolymer set and Flower Fair Framelits (also available as a bundle). This one also uses the Lullaby Designer Series Paper, which is included in this month’s Buy 3 Get 1 Free deal! This project took a little more time than some of my other usual projects – I like quick and easy but impressive…but in truth, this actually wasn’t too awful – because of the coordinating stamp set and framelits.  This card comes folded flat and fits in a regular A4 envelope for mailing, but once the recipient opens the envelope, they can turn it into this 3D version!! The construction of this card is not as complicated as it might seem – let me know if you’re interested in instructions or a class and I can see what I can do. In the meantime, I’m off to finish prep for tonight’s Stampers Club. Oh, and unpack my suitcase. Oh, and start some laundry. Oh……LOL!!

 

(PS And part two of “Why does technology hate me?” means that my internet connection was lost just as I went to publish this post. Never mind, it’s back now, and here’s the post!!)
