Valentine Card in a Box for my Sister

This is my first try at making a card in a box.  I wanted it to fit in an A2 envelope so I adjusted the measurements and it ended up being smaller than most of the card in a box that I've seen but for my first try, I was happy with it.  The wording is from the old Cuttlebug embossing folder/die cut set called Love Language.  The hearts are from page 35 of Sweethearts.  I cut them in white and in red and then used the negatives of the hearts for accents.  I decorated the lower outside parts of the box using the same word cuts from the Love Language set.  The roses in the vase and the envelope with hearts are stickers that I put on thin slivers of acetate to make them wobble just a bit.  The small heart with wording that is stuck down a little low on the first section of the box is also a sticker.  The tiny  picture in the background is one of my was of me and my Sister just before we went off to sea kayak (for the first time ever!) at Bar Harbor Maine last summer.


  1. Super exploding box, I like all the images you included on the inside!

  2. I love my card/box - it sits on the window in my kitchen thank you sweet sister!
