The Everything ABC Blog-Hop Letter X

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!


          

For this hop we will be featuring the letter "X" This may be the name
of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has
chosen as their "X" element will be featured in their post.  For the letter X we can even use any word containing the letter X
If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning
If you came from  Elise Sosa - A Splash of Color then you're on the right track!

Card in a Box

I love the BOX card.  So when I thought of X I thought of the submitting my attempt at making one.  When I first saw these cards, I actually didn't realize they folded and could be put in a regular sized envelope.

When I researched making the card, I found several ideas and posted them on my Pinterest board. including a cutting template.  The You Tube video tutorial I used was from frenchiestamps.com. The card is 5.5"X4.25"



For this box I used
All CTMH items from the 2014 Annual Inspirations Idea Book

Sparkles Black and Grey - Z1754
The Happy Birthday Stamp D1497
from the Art Philosophy collection

I like making layered flowers, cutting a variety of shapes and sizes, ink them, spritz with water, squish into a "spit wad", carefully unfold and refold/wrinkle/squish as needed. let it dry then reink if needed, glue together and add a center pearl or sparkle. I do think the teal butterflies need a couple black/grey sparkles. - tomorrow's another day...I might find some more time to play.
  
Your next stop on our Everything ABC'S blog Hop is " Linda Norman " of "Scrappy Therapy  ".  In case you get lost along the way  Linda's blog has a complete list of participants!


Hope you enjoyed all the "X" inspired fabulous art.  
Plan to join us in three weeks for letter "Y".
