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.

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 🙂

This would make a great engagement card too!

Anniversary Card In A Box

When the lovely young lady who works with my disabled son said that her parent’s 25th wedding anniversary was coming up I thought I would make a special card for her to give to them.  Knowing that her Mum is also a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator who would appreciate my handy work, I wanted to make this one extra special.  Hearts Collection Framelits 001 - Front

Extra special?  Tick!

Hearts Collection Framelits 001 - Left

I spent hours die cutting and punching hearts, and making sure they were all in just the right position!

I know she loved the card as much as I do!  Happy anniversary Kerry, I hope you had a wonderful day 🙂
