Birthday card in a Box

Hello friends and followers, thanks for stopping by to visit me.  A special hello to my newest follower Kristie! So happy to have you along :o)

Today I taught my card group how to make a really cool 3D card that I've been wanting to try.  I'm excited to share it with you too.  Warning...this is a bit photo heavy.'s how the card looks when folded flat:
Eww - I really need a manicure :o)

And here's how it looks as you start to open it:

And...wait for's how it looks when it's fully opened:
A birthday card in a box!  Is that fun or what?  Here's a look from the side:
Lot's of fun to make and sure to bring a smile to the recipient :o).  If you would like to get the instructions for this card just leave me your email address in the comments and I'll happily send it to you.  The details for the products are listed at the end of this post (all products are from Stampin Up!).
