Happy Valentine's Day Paper lovers!

I totally stole this idea from my friend Carmen who made one in her SU card club. Yeah, I know.  I typed SU... But hey a great idea is a great Idea!

So I CTMH'ed that idea up with our new Ivy Lane paper pack, Feb 2014 stamp of the month and a bunch cricut cuts!  This is what I came up with:


 
And this is a pic of the co-ordinating envelope I made with my
 Envelope Punch Board and the closed card:
 
 
 
I was able to find a full template and instructions at: http://extremecards.blogspot.ca/2014/02/card-in-box-pop-up.html  she's done a great job of explaining how to create the base.  The colour, d├ęcor and theme are up to you.  I think, with a little play, you could adjust the size to fit a standard 4 1/4x5 1/2 envelope, or whatever size you like best!
 
My hubby really enjoyed this playful card.  It's now proudly displayed at his office.
 
You can expect to find some version of this as a make and take at one of my upcoming events!
