Ladybug Birthday In A Box Card

Good morning friends

Today is the day that Karen Burniston has her Designer Challenge post on her  BLOG - be sure to check out her card for the challenge GLITTER.

My share today was made for a paper crafting friend. I wanted to use a couple of dies that I know she has, as it's always fun to see how someone else uses your tools and she had requested a Card In A Box. When you know someone appreciates it, you enjoy putting a lot of effort into their card!

I took lots of photos, so you can see the different views.

The black butterfly body and the black sections of the ladybugs were cut from black velvet. I added a picket fence around the perimeter, under the box flaps.

Just for fun, I also decorated the underside of the flaps with coordinating blocks from a sheet of patterned paper in the same stack.

Because the card was being hand delivered, I was able to package it up in a clear cello bag. That is my favourite way to package this type of card.
