1. Picture of the front of my envelobox
2. Is a picture of the side view
And guess what? You can still feel the bulky pin, but I am not making it any deeper.
Here is the side view of the card
I don't know about you, but I just could not keep the envelobox "naked" and so I added a few things. To make it a little more look like the card itself. I added some of that yummy crocheted lace trim I got from http://www.stampersdream.com/ , some moss green satin ribbon and to hide the seam on the back of the box I just wrapped the both over it ;P. Next I got some Primas in the same color as the cards out and just could not find a brad or button that I actually liked on there, so I made my own button, so to speak. It consists of a circle punched out out of Chocolate Chip cs with a 1 1/2" and then one punched out in PTI Vintage Cream with a 1 3/8" circle punch. To that I added the words "All the Best" from the SU set Elegant Cheer, distressed it with Chalk Box chalk ink in Chestnut Roan and Creamy Brown, popped the top layer on some dimensionals and added it to the flower center. Something was still missing so I went to my stamp cabinet and my eye stopped at a CTMH stamp set I had for a while but very rarely use it. It is called 'Moments" and I think, it is retired by now (not 100% sure though). Since the card is for 36th Wedding Anniversary I figured this sentiment would be perfect. And since I had this set out already, I said what the heck, let me add a little something to the corner as well so I used one of the corner flourishes for the right upper corner. What do you think? I guess after all my card turned out to be a gift on it's own combined with this envelobox!!!! Wheew, I am done!!!
I'll try post the instructions later, right now, I'll have to take my kids out of the house for a minute before they tear it up!!!!!
Thanks friends for stopping by, it means the world to me.
