Box Card

I decided to try another card using 100 movable parts cd . After I had it all finished and sat back to take a look at it I thought oh no not again, another birthday card that looks like a Christmas card.  Hopefully my sister will like it anyway, I was going for a vintage feel, the flowers were all glitter stickers that I backed with designer paper so you can see color through them.

Hot off the press -- 100 Movable parts cd (link above)
Colorbok -- Rosewood papers (front and inside)
Spellbinders -- A2 matting basics A, Decorative Labels 8 and Foliage Flourish dies
Paper studio -- Glitter flower burst, Glitter flower pots and glittered butterflies stickers
Stampendous -- Orchid greetings(front) and Birthday assortment (inside sentiment)
Craftaroo -- Rhinestone (flower centers)
Martha Stewart -- Border punch (inside)

Here is a picture of it opened to see the box effect you get when opening the card, it closes flat for mailing.

Here is a picture looking down on the card while open:

  I changed the inside a little bit, they give you measurements to cut the inside window, I used a spellbinders die instead that was almost the same measurements and instead of centering it on the inside I cut it closer to the top to have the bottom for signing but I ended up putting more stickers there and added my signature to the inside on the other side.

I went for my first walk since my procedure on Monday and my foot did well, it took me about 5 minutes longer to walk the same distance so I did walk it a little slower but not bad.  It is very bruised in the area but the pain is very tolerable.  The toe that is very bruised seems to be good, one of them doesn't look any different at all, so that is disappointing, hopefully it will get better over time, I have a few more weeks before seeing him again so I have a while to see what he thinks about it.

Thanks for all your prayers and good thoughts my way.

Thanks for stopping by also,
