West Midlands, United Kingdom
I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 20. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 25 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

A card-in-a-box

I'm Back!!!!!!!!  Sorry I've been a bad blogger but I have been having problems with my hand due to Carpel Tunnel in my wrist which has made crafting difficult.  Thankfully I have been having treatment and it seems to be improving so I have had a crafty morning :)

I decided to make a card with a difference.  These cards are all over blogs and pinterest but I altered mine so that when folded goes into a 5" x 5" envelope.

I love pink/brown combos so I used pink pirouette and crumb card card, paper and inks with centura pearl card for the base for stability.



CARD SIZE:-
5" x 5"
STAMPS:-
Flowers Shop, Petite Petals & Label Love from STAMPIN UP
PAPER:-
Subtles paper stack, pink pirouette from STAMPIN UP
CARD:-
Centura Pearl from CRAFTERS COMPANION
Crumb cake 
TOOLS:-
Artisan Lable punch, Pansy punch and Petite petals, Itty bitty flower from STAMPIN UP
OTHERS:-

Pearls from stash
