A5 Card in a BOX

The Birthday Card!
Our fantastic entertainment - very professional!
Our friend's birthday is Dec 25th - so she decided to celebrate her "big" birthday six months later. We had a lovely time at her party and were fantastically entertained by her daughter and friends! Obviously I needed a special card for the occasion! I wanted to make a larger version of the card in a box so set about working out the new dimensions - it proved easier than I expected! I then used the stamp set Celebrate Today and matching framelits - to create the theme for the card. Although I used retired paper - it is very easy to substitute others.

 For those of you experienced at making such cards the basic instructions are as follows:- With an A4 sheet of cardstock orientated in landscape - score at 7cm, 14cm, 21cm and 28cm. Turn the card stock to portrait orientation and trim 2cm off the long edge - this will give you your "Z" sections. Then with the card still in the same position - score lengthways at 11cm. Cut along the score 7cm, 14 cm, 21cm and 28cm score lines from the "shorter" side to the centre score line. Then fold/decorate and glue as usual.

 I will post step by step directions with pictures in the next day or so which will help make things clearer or for those new to this style of card.

 Have fun xx
