I saw this idea on a blog as I was surfing around last night and thought it was so cute I had to have a go at it. BE WARNED! If you don't like working with templates, cutting, trimming etc then this is NOT the project for you.

I originally made my template so that the card was the traditional 4.25"x5.5" - and though it looked okay, I decided I like it much better shorter - it just looks more like a REAL present. (Yes - I do know that presents come in all shapes and sizes -but it just looks cuter short and squat. LOL!)

For the outside "box" I used Stampin'Up! Lovely Flowers Designer Paper (it's a Level III Hostess Item) and Rich Razzleberry cardstock. The ribbon is white organza.

For the insert I used the Stampin'Up! Dream a Little stamp set and the new In-Color markers in shades of Rich
Razzleberry and Melon Mambo.

The flower is stamped in Summer Sun because I don't have the Crushed Curry ink pad and forgot I had the markers until after I stamped the flower. DUH!!!!

If anyone is interested in the template let me know and I will post it.

Until Next Time -
Happy Stamping!

This is beautiful and the paper is great too! Hope you will post the template. I love my traditional cards but I also love the challenge of different things and making 3D items also.
