The Wacky Watercooler April Blog Hop – Spring has Sprung

The Wacky Watercooler April Blog Hop – Spring has Sprung

If you have just visited Jackie's Blog weren't her projects awesome?  She always inspires me.  Tonight I have a technique class and I made my two projects to go along with the themes of this hop--Spring!

The first technique we are learning tonight is the Card in a Box.  Deb Valder's Stampladee is the website that I followed to make my card, she had very clear instructions and I really appreciated her help and incites. The bonus is that the card fits in a A2 envelope with extra postage.  I found that you had to make sure your flowers were inside the box while closed or it wouldn't fit in the envelope.
