Card-In-A-Box ~ Baby Boy

Hi Crafters, we've had such a lovely sunny day here, albeit a little chilly, I hope you've had the same.
I have seen so many Box Cards on the internet lately that I just had to give it a try so here is my  Baby Boy card in a box.


I used the lovely stamp and die sets from Clearly Besotted Stamps for the train and the baby items. The paper was from a magazine freebie and the heart shaped button and twine from my stash.
Here's a closer shot...

 
...a top view...
 
 
 
...and a side view...
 
 
The back has a blank panel to write your message and I stamped 'Bundle of Joy' on it but unfortunately I couldn't get a picture of that, my camera decided that there wasn't enough light at that point even though I hadn't changed anything from taking all the other photo's and it wouldn't focus properly, so I admitted defeat and called it a day. This card will fit inside a C5 envelope when folded flat so it's perfect for sending and surprisingly isn't that bulky.
Challenges I'd like to enter are:
Addicted To Stamps - Fancy Folds
Scribble & Scrap - Anything Goes
Country View Challenges - New Beginnings
 
Thanks for stopping by,
 
See you soon,
 
Lorraine

Great box card - they are so impressive (and relatively easy to do! Even my 80 year old mum managed it). I'm sure this card will really stand out from the rest. Cindy

I'm seeing so many of these cute little boxes on the 'net. This one is adorable, and what perfect trims coming out of the box for a wonderful Baby Boy card. Pretty papers and loved those tiny shapes. TFS & Hugs
