Happy Birthday! It’s a Card in a Box

Giggle Greetings, Starburst Sayings


Happy Birthday, Mike!

My Card in a Box is special to me. It is for a wonderful man who is celebrating his birthday today and I wanted him to know that we love him. Making a masculine card is always a challenge for me and making it explode takes it to a whole new level!  This card in a box was so much fun to make and I can’t wait to make another one! I used these written instructions from Tina Weller. If you haven’t made one of these yet, you really have to try it!
