My First Box Card

Hello Friends,

Have you seen those marvellous box cards on the Internet lately? I wasn't much interested in making one until I realized that they fold flat for mailing. Most of my cards need to go in the post.

My brother's birthday is in a few days and I wanted to send him something special. A Harley Davidson themed box card was just the thing for him. Riding his Harley is his favourite thing to do.

The images are from Free Vintage Digi Stamps

Thanks for visiting my blog today. I hope you are having a wonderful day.

Blessing hugs,
Teresa

This is beautiful! But be careful, it's easy to get addicted to making them! Hugs, Valerie

It's fabulous, Teresa! I'm so impressed with this and I know he's going to love it. The whole idea of box cards just intimidates me. I love that they fold flat and I keep looking at them but without a really good tutorial, there's no way I could ever do one.

Awwww, I think your brother will love this! Really cool how you picked the perfect images for his card! And I am still not sure about making these. They look great, but take too much time to do, methinks! ;^)
Hugs, Penny

Great box card, Teresa. I'm sure that your brother will love it. I made one for our granddaughter's birthday and my son couldn't stop playing with it (squeezing the sides to pop the box lol) Made him a never ending card for his birthday and he's still trying to work out how I did it hehe
