Hidy Ho, crafty peeps~
I just got home from a GLORIOUS trip to see my bestee in Colorado. It was way too short, but then again, anything short of being there permanently is way too short.
Before I left on my trip, I was hired to make a birthday card for a dear friend (by her sisters). Their instructions were that it had to be quirky and out-of-the-box. Other than that, I was left to create whatever my muse dictated.
I decided on a card-in-a-box format...what better format for an out-of-the-box theme? I calculated out all my measurements, because I knew this was gonna need to be a HUGE card...and a standard A-4 size just wouldn't do.
Here is the outside of the card. It measures about 8.5" by 9". I stamped up Kraft cardstock with my favorite woodgrain stamp (Stampin' Up) and paper pieced it to look like a stack of shipping crates. I even penciled in breathing holes in the top right crate.
Here is the back side of the card. I left a large section empty so that her sisters could write their greeting/wishes on it.
And, here is what it looks like when you open it up! There is a party going on inside!
Thanks for comin' out to Left Field!!
