The challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs this week, ODBDSLC208, is a Birthday challenge! We want to see your birthday cards! I thought I'd try something different this week and make a "card in a box".
If you google "card in a box" you should get a number of different templates, but I based mine on Tina Weller's. This "card in a box" is awesome because it folds flat for postage!
I have used Bazzill textured cardstock as my base and have attached ODBD Rustic Beauty Paper on the panels of the box.
The Happy Birthday sentiment is from ODBD Be Joyful and I have stamped the frame, from ODBD Antique Labels Designs, around the outside and diecut with ODBD Antique Labels and Borders dies.
The flowers, ODBD Asters and Leaves dies, are diecut from ODBD Rustic Beauty Paper Collection and ODBD Christian Faith Collection and the leaves, ODBD Asters and Leaves dies, ODBD Zinnia and Leaves dies and ODBD Fancy Foliage, from ODBD Blushing Rose Paper Collection.
It's a little hard to see but I have diecut the ODBD Fence die from ODBD Blooming Garden Paper Collection and used this as the base for my flowers to "stand up" on.
The ladybugs and bee are stamped from the ODBD Zinnia set and diecut with ODBD Zinnia and Leaves dies. I've then coloured them with a few Copic markers.
I did add some Stickles Stardust to the bee's wings and some glossy accents to the middle of the Asters and on the ladybugs' dots - but I did this after I took the photos sorry!
