Annual Inspirations Blog Hop - Day 2

Card in a Box
I've been wanting to create a "card in a box" for some time.  
Today it happened.  
I found several ideas and posted them on my Pinterest board. including a cutting template.
The You Tube video tutorial I used was from The card is 5.5"X4.25"

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 butterfly need a couple black/grey sparkles. - tomorrow's another day...
I might find some more time to play.
