Card in a Box

Well did I have fun this afternoon.  DD asked me to make her a card for a friend who is expecting a Baby Girl.  They are having a baby shower for her at the office one of these days.

I didn't want to make a normal square card again, so I thought I would try out the "Card in a Box" which is so popular.  I haven't had the time to try it out, so thought I'd just do a little "dummy" one this afternoon.  As it turns out, the "dummy" wasn't so bad, so it'll be making it's way to the office...lol

I viewed a tutorial on the internet and started prepping...  Cut my paper to the required measurements that were given, scored and cut as instructed further. Tape on the right will stick to the other side of the cardstock when I close it, to form the box.

Then I looked around for some baby stickers and pasted them onto the black cardstock, 
as I think the black makes them "pop" !

As you can see, the box is closed and now I can start decorating the inside.

And here is the final project.  Pic taken from the front.

Here is a side view so that you can see the different layers.

Another side view.

And one from the Top.

And then finally, this is what it looks like when you lay it flat.
It fits perfectly into an envelope.

The "mother-to-be" loves Owls, hence the owl.

Thanks for popping by to see what I have created today.

As some of my regulars will know, I am a huge OUTLANDER Fan, so it was
just a matter of time before I did a project life layout of Outlander.  I still have much more to do.

I am also busy embellishing my project life cards...  So, as you can see, I am very busy.

Thanks so much for popping by. 
Happy Crafting!
