Make them smile, with a card in a box!

A card in a box has got to be one of the most fun designs for a card that I've ever seen! I love that the receiver will really get to enjoy looking at this for some time. I found a tutorial for this 4 1/4" x 6" card on Youtube, made by Stamping T. She created this for a standard size envelope in Australia, so I did have to make an envelope to hold this, since I usually use A2 envelopes (for a 4 1/4"x 5 1/2" card). Thank goodness the Envelope Punch Board makes it easy peasy!

 I used the Pleasant Poppies background stamp, which was not super pleasant to cut out, but the results are so worth it. To attach the butterfly, I used a small strip of a window sheet, so it would look like it was flying.
 
I love how this whole card collapses and is self contained for shipping! Absolutely brilliant! The backside acts as a place to put your message. For full instructions, check out the Youtube video.
