Card in a Box - Baby Card

Morning everyone, today I have got a beauty of a card to share with you all. I'm not sure if you have seen the recent trend of Cards in a Box that seem to be all over Pinterest at the moment. Well I had to make a very special card for my friend who's just had a gorgeous baby girl. So I decided this would be perfect.

It's such a gorgeous card and can be decorated in so many different way too. Oh and did I mention it's really easy to make. Honestly it is!! The hardest part is trying to decide how to decorate it and what to use. My craft room currently looks like a hoard of two year olds got in there.

It also folds flat and fits in a normal size envelop. Just have to remember not to stick anything too far over the sides, otherwise they stick out too much.

There are lots of tutorials for this type of card, but a lot of the American ones are too big for our standard Aussie size envelop. I found this awesome tutorial from fellow Australian Demo, Tanya Bell. Her Card in a Box is absolutely beautiful and well worth popping over to take a look.

I really must point out a few SAB Sneak Peeks that I've used on this card. Firstly I have to point out that this beautiful paper is the SAB DSP called Sweet Sorbet. It's just such gorgeous paper and I can't seem to stop using it. The second sneak peek, is the little "Baby" banner I used. I have used the Banner Blast outline stamp (1 of 6 super cute little banner stamps) and the coordinating banner punch to cut it out with. The word "Baby" I got from another stamp set and I just lined them both up using my Stamp-a-ma-jig.

Well that's it for today. Only 2 more days until SAB starts and I'm so excited. I do still have a few dates available if you would like to book a workshop with me. Also if you would like a copy of the SAB catty or any of our catalogues pleased don't hesitate to contact me, if you don't already have a local demo.

Have Fun,
