Hi everyone hope you are all keeping well. Thought I would share with you on my blog my Card in a Box cards that I've been making recently! I just LOVE making these cards. Did you know that they fold flat to post too! Yes they really do! Anyway did any of you catch Craftwork Cards on Create and Craft last Friday?? The lovely Julie Hickey was demoing these cards!
Julie mentioned on the show that it was one of my creations (yes mine!!) that I had sent to her for a previous weekender show that inspired her and the team up at CWC towers to create some fabulous kits for the show - which sold out in around 20 mins! I feel so proud about that! (Now I want to add at this point that I didn't come up with the card in a box idea originally (sadly - LOL!!) I had seen it many times on Pinterest and Facebook) and decided to have a go myself! So here is that card I originally sent to Julie which gave them the kit idea! This wasn't my first attempt at these cards - but I've attached my first attempt in this post.....
This next Pop up Card is the one I made for Julie for last Friday's show.
I created a little pocket within the box so that you could remove the tag (see picture above and below)
I can't tell you how much I love making these cards! Now here is my very FIRST attempt at these Cards in a box cards.
Lastly here are some recent commission cards that I've made....
They all get matching envelopes here are pics with yet some more that I've made with the matching envelope in the background!
So I think I've shown you enough - I don't want to bore you! I really do urge you to have a go and now that you can buy the Pop up card blanks they are even easier to do! Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your makes so that I can feature you on my weekly Focus on You post for Craftwork Cards. Talking of which if you have any makes featuring the Kitsch paper collection please send them to me as I'm doing a special Focus on You devoted to this gorgeous collection and there is a lovely £25 online voucher to be won - so what you waiting for!
