Card in the Box

Heyy Friends,
Hope you all are doing great. Today I'm sharing a Valentine themed 3D card- Card in a box to be appropriate and have used pink, white and red as the main colours. Why it's called 'card in a box', you'll know soon. Let me warn you that it's going to be a PICTURE HEAVY POST. Here are the pictures:

The moment you see it opened, it looks like a box full of colourful wishes and goodies :) So technically,it's a box shaped card :)

Tried heat embossing for the first time with this butterfly.

The beauty of this card is that it can be easily folded flat and can be inserted into an envelope, and that makes it really apt for a hassle-free posting :)

There are many tutorials available on the internet for making it. But the one that really inspired me is this amazing video by My Stampin' Haven.
Patterned papers from DCWV-the girl stack

Supplies used:
Patterned papers by DCWV-the girl stack
white card stock-A4 sized
Stamps-Fiskars-all round quotes,butterfly magic and Inkadinkadoo-Floral expressions

Distress and memento inks for colouring and distressing the edges.

That's pretty much all from my side. I admit it felt so refreshing making this project after so many CAS cards.:)  Do let me know how you like it .Thanks for stopping by :)
