A cute Gift card Box / Punched Tulip

Pin It
Monday class has come and gone and its been really cold here.....bring on summer!!! never thought I'd say that. Now ive lost so much weight i feel the cold so bad....lost all my fluffy blankets!! Well im going to get this posted out quickly because im off to the hospital soon. My uncle had a massive heart attach yesterday and they say he may not make it. My mum is so upset. He's not real good I'm affraid, a very Godly man he is and has been some one to look up to for a long time.....so here my cards for you this week with a heavy heart.
The first is called a Gift Card Box. I found these instruction on the net while surfing around one day some time ago. Just be ware to line all the shape up before you emboss or tape down. as the first ones of mine went in the bin.....but i was happy how it turned out in the end....worth having a go. Heres some differnt veiws of the same card.


I thought it was cute the way it pops up when you open the box lid.....remember to make nice crisp folds and the card will work better the more you use it. Heres a side veiw.

And here are a few pics that Shona sent to me....they are great!



Our second card was snack easy using 4 oval punches folded in half to make this pretty Tulip.....


Well enjoy and have a lovely day....Valita

and a last thought

The Lord will be your everlasting light,
and the days of sorrow will end.
Isaiah 60:20
