Flower Shop Card in a Box

I've had some FUN!  

I decided that to increase my creativity... and to challenge myself...

I would try the Just Add Ink challenge this week!

And this is what I made:

Flower Shop Card in a Box

 It's the new Card in a Box that is sweeping the internet world!

Here is a pic of the Just Add Ink challenge - some pretty colours to choose from: 

 Whisper White, Daffodil Delight 
 and for the green I used Wild Wasabi.

I have a special friend who was turning 50 so I designed my card just for her... 

Here's some more pics:

 To make the Card in a Box, I followed a video which has been made by a fellow-Australian,
 Tanya Bell.   If you want to make one too, just pop over to her blog!

After I made the card I wanted to make a pretty envelope to pop it into - and of course I used the Envelope Punch Board by Stampin' Up!

The Card in a Box folds flat for posting!

Very easy to fold up!

And here is the finished product - my Card in a Box using 
Flower Shop Stamp Set and matching envelope.

I hope you've enjoyed looking at my little bunch of flowers... 
I can tell you that the recipient did get a lovely surprise when she opened up this card! 

EDITED TO ADD:  Yay - I won an Honourable Mention over at the Just Add Ink challenge blog - yippee!!!!

Stunning card in a box. I love the little bows in the middle of the flowers and the extra little tags and sentiments you have added. Chantell JAI

The recipient did get a wonderful surprise when she opened her lovely hand made envelope to find a bunch of flowers in a box!!
