Another Box Card

Here is another box card I made.  I just love the way they stand up with the message peeking through.  I think I will make one with the message on the outside and an image in the window.

For this one I started with patterned paper from Basic Grey and then used a scalloped flower I had made a week ago and was still sitting on my desk.  To make the flower I punched out 10 scalloped circles with different cardstock and patterned papers, then I cut little slits between each scallop (I did a few together to make it go faster), the layer them on top of each other and use a Crop-a-Dile to punch a hole in the center and use a brad for the center.  I used a rhinestone brad from SU.  I then used a Sizzix Die to cut out the swirls and leaves with Old Olive.  The sentiment is an old SU from years back that I like:)

Happy Stamping,

SO beautiful! What a creative idea! The flower popped out and the message popped in! ;-)

Great tip about the crop-a-dile with the layers of flower! Green and Pink - one of my favorite combinations. The peek-a-boo message is so cute! What a happy card!
