This card in a box is for my daughter's birthday. My daughter is turning 14 and just loves penguins. The card is winter themed for her February birthday even though the weather here in SoCal has been like summer. Believe me I'm not complaining but we sure could use some rain.
Isn't this so fun and cute? I used Create a Critter 2 for the penguins. I cut them at 2.25 and 2.5inches. I used DCWV Arctic Wishes Stack for the sparkly papers as well as some glitter paper for the snow and the accessories. The Happy Birthday banner is from the Artiste cartridge. I glued a tiny pompom to the birthday hat and made earmuffs as well.
The snowflakes are from Michaels Recollections line. They had them real cheap right before Christmas. Again I used the clear outer plastic seal from my Cricut cartridges to attach the snowflakes to look like they are falling. The ribbon is from American crafts.
The box folds down and I can put it in an envelope. These card in a box cards are so fun and easy to make. I think I am addicted! They are exploding all over Pinterest and I just love them. There is even a smaller one that fits in a standard sized envelope that I might have to try. They fit perfectly in these foil lined envelopes that I have leftover from my Costco photo Christmas cards. I got my measurements from http://callalilystudioblog.blogspot.com/. She has done several of these boxes and I love them all!
