Wow!  I was so inspired by this beautiful bouquet that I’ve created one of my own.  But mine can be flattened and sent through the mail!

If you’ve followed my blog for long, you know how I love the Card in a Box!  This is similar, but starts with the Window Box Thinlits.  I played around with this most of the afternoon, trying to figure out how it could fit into an envelope.  I finally found this great video from Mitosu Crafts, explaining how to do this!  I was inspired to make this from Marieke Bart’s gorgeous Pop Up bouquet.

Here it is folded flat.  But I can’t bear to part with it!  Ha!  Are any of you like that when you make a favorite card?

I know I’ll have some requests for a class.  Maybe in May.  April showers bring May flowers!  Let me know if you’d be interested.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I’d love to hear your comments!

Make sure you continue on the Kre8tors Blog Hop to see more colorful creations!

ICS Blog Hop… Introducing 2017 – 2019 In Colors!

The more I use these new In Colors, the more I just LOVE THEM!!

I was asked by my BFF Susie (my Honolulu buddy from single days…) to make a special card for her friend who was retiring from teaching.  Special card makes me think:  Card in a Box!

Aren’t those colors gorgeous?!!  And I thought the chair & drink were the quintessential “retirement”!  The beautiful Designer Series Paper is called Naturally Eclectic.  I paired it with the In Color Designer Series Paper called Fresh Florals.

The sentiments from Wild About Flowers mainly focus on retirement.  Notice how the word retirement is 2-toned.  That was simple to do because the word retirement is a separate stamp.  I stamped it in Lemon Lime Twist, then just dipped the bottom in Fresh Fig.

Thanks for stopping by today!
