And this is the inside. The cupcake and the "sweet thing" are from a cling set. And on the inside, I stamped the flaming candles over the ones on the cake. The cardstock is a fairly bright yellow, so the colors aren't quite as bright as in real life. I also did something a little different with the ribbon on the front. Here are the copics I used: E00. E11, E43, E47, E33, E35, E37, E21, YG11, YG13, YG17, R20, RV21, RV23, RV29, Y08, C1, C2. I wrote over the sweet with a copic. I was floundering around on youtube and an inspiration hit me - wouldn't a card set be a neat thing to send along with this card? It's for a granddaughter. So I searched for an a2 sized box and here is the link for this fab box!
Sorry the link I posted was not the one I wanted! Just fixed it!
The box is made from a 12 x 12 piece of cardstock or heavier paper. It is one piece and just so neat!
I decorated the outside of the box and tied it with a ribbon that isn't too tight to slip on and off without untying. I took a photo of the cards in the box. If you are going for no raised embellishments, I am sure you can get 8 plus envelopes into the box. I made a nice even 6 . I started making them basically the same but got quickly bored, so they aren't! None of them are copic colored. I used mostly dye ink as the clean up is a snap! Next time I will make a card that I can replicate without it bothering me. It is such a nice little gift. Hope she likes it! Of course I am sending a check along also!!
I used the little memento inks since I have a whole lot of colors, I was able to do each card in its own color. I also added a little touch to each envelope to make little sets. Give this little box a try. It's really amazing that I made two and they both held the cards and both closed! Hugs to you all! Barb F
