Card in a Box

When I was at Joyce's on Tuesday, she showed us 2 really cute examples of Cards in a Box.  Of course, I had to come home and figure out how she had made it.  I don't even know if I'll send this to anyone, it's so darn cute.  It measures standard A2 size when folded.  I'm sure it would need extra postage because with the bling I added and all the layers it is definitely thicker than 1/4".

and here's the box from the front

and from the side
The Easter egg stamps were in the goodie bag my daughter gave me for Christmas, wood Studio G stamps.
The sentiments are CTMH stamps.  The plastic I used to hold the little eggs up is from one of those strips you find under the collar of a freshly purchased man's shirt, a trick Joyce taught us.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Brown Sugar Challenge #86 - Anything Goes
Crafts 4 Eternity Challenge #168 - Anything Goes
Jellypark Challenge - Pretty Pastels
Sister Act Card Challenge #49 - Anything Goes
Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge - Easter
4 Crafty Girls Challenge #14 - Anything Goes
Creative Knockouts Challenge #29 - Things with Wings
Red Rubber Inspirationals #12 - Color in the Lines
(I used various brands of markers to color the Easter Eggs.)

Have a great week-end.  
And thanks so much for visiting my blog.
