Card or Box? Maybe both....

Hello Stamping Friends,

Today at Sisters in Stamping we are sharing with you projects made using the great Designer Series Paper Stampin' Up! offers. You won't be at a creative loss for long when you select one of the great packages of paper from the Annual Catalog or the Occasions Catalog. They make creating so easy. I love picking a designer paper when I'm stuck with color combos because I know they work together and my finished project will look just as great because the colors "go together."

I decided to share with you this card in a box. These are the hottest little projects right now. It folds flat so you can easily slip it into an envelope and send it on its way. What a treat for the recipient when they open the envelope and the box "pops up" by itself. Think baby, birthday, or any special occasion. This card will delight anyone.
This particular one uses the watercolor wonder designer series paper from the Occasions Catalog. And that's exactly where I got my color combo from for all of the butterflies. Great time of year to see colorful butterflies, isn't it?  You may be wondering how the butterflies are "flying" mid-air because it isn't very easy to see, so I will tell you. I used small strips of window sheets to attach to the card and the butterflies are attached to the other end of the window sheet. Even in person, it isn't easy to see this.

I think you may be able to see the window sheet here just a little bit. Still not easy, so this makes it the perfect solution to "suspend" things in air on all your projects.  Don't forget to head over to Sisters in Stamping to see more great ideas using the best designer series paper around.
