Janine’s Card In A Box

Janine’s husband, Graeme, asked all of her stamping friends to make a card to present to her during the funeral.  I knew that I would make Janine a card in a box card, because she wanted to try one, but didn’t get the chance.

Janine Card In A Box - Front

I chose Blackberry Bliss because purple is Janine’s favourite colour.  The stars come from a long retired set that I don’t think I will ever part with, called Simply Stars.  I choose stars because I like to think that Janine is now a star shining down on us.  I’ve also added lots of Silver Glimmer Paper, because Janine is just like the rest of us and loved her bling!

I know Janine would have loved this card!  I think it took me just as long to write my message to her on the back as it did to make the card.  I didn’t want to make it a sad card, so I made it a thank you card instead.  I thanked Janine for our special friendship, and all the little moments we got to share.  I also added this small piece I found online:

Goodbye’s are not forever.

Goodbye’s are not the end.

They simply mean I’ll miss you,

Until we meet again.

Sleep peacefully my beautiful friend, until we meet again.

Father’s Day Card In A Box

We made a Father’s Day card in a box at last week’s class, along with the wedding anniversary one I shared in my last post.

Dad Card In A Box - Front 1

My ladies came up with some great variations on this card too…and I know there’s one card that is waiting for a special little grandchild to be born!

Dad Card In A Box - Front 2

I saw the Onesie from the Something For Baby stamp set made into a shirt for Father’s Day last year…I love that Pinterest reminds us of all these great ideas when we are ready to use them!

I now have one Father’s Day card in my stash for this year…only 2 more to go!

Thanks for stopping by.

Wedding Anniversary Card In A Box

One of my lovely class ladies asked if we could make a card for a 25th wedding anniversary card at Friday night’s class.  I watched Tanya Bell’s video tutorial, and this is the card we made.

Congrats Card In A Box - Front 1

I love how this turned out!  Inspiration came from the million photos of Card In A Box cards that Stamp With Rachel has posted over on her Facebook page.

My ladies loved making this card, and came up with some great variations!  It was crazy busy with 9 people, but we all had a great time 🙂

Father’s Day Card In A Box

Today I am sharing the card in a box I made for Father’s Day for the most amazing man I know.  He’s pretty special, and needed a pretty special card.  I think I nailed it with this one!

I pulled out the retired Simply Stars set and got busy stamping and then cutting them all out!
