Hi Stampers. I’m back today with another custom “card in a box”. This card was a birthday card for a Packers fan who also loves roses and motorcycle riding.
This card was made with Daffodil Delight card stock, Garden Green card stock, some retired Designer Series Paper, gold glimmer paper and dazzling diamonds glimmer paper. (There are links to the directions to make the card base below. ) A few balloons using the Stampin’ Up! Balloon Bouquet punch give this card a birthday feel. I drew the accent on the balloon with the white gel pen. The “Happy Birthday” is from the Better Together stamp set. I stamped it in Garden Green ink onto Whisper White card stock, cut it out and sponged the edges with Daffodil Delight ink and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The Green Bay Packers logo was printed onto Whisper White card stock and then adhered to the card. The motorcycle, route 66 sign and “lifes a journey” badge were all from the One Wild Ride stamp set and stamped in Basic Black ink onto Whisper White card stock and fussy cut out with paper ships. The badge was adhered to a scrap of Pumpkin Pie card stock and I fussy cut around that to make a very thin border of Pumpkin Pie. It was then adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The balloons and motorcycle were adhered to a strip of acetate and then attached to the card at varying heights.
The bouquet of flowers was printed onto card stock and fussy cut out with paper snips. I then added a few candy dot’s and rhinestones as a finishing touch. These card in a boxes are great in that they fold flat to fit in an envelope. My card in a boxes are a little bigger than a standard A2 envelope, so I make a custom 6″x6″ envelope with my Envelope Punch Board.
If you’d like to try your had at making this card yourself.
