Card in a box (almost!)

I haven't made a card for ages but the other week my neighbour asked if I would make a card for her mother's birthday.

She wanted a card with dimension on it, so that meant that it wouldn't fit in to an envelope without being squashed. I used Prima paper and flowers, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Craftwork cards greeting, coloured with distress inks, and American Crafts thickers.
 I made a box base, but I didn't feel like making a lid, so I decided to experiment with a piece of co-ordinating cardstock instead, and this is the result:

I will experiment with making the ribbon a bit tidier, and hope that it's ok for my neighbour.
Thanks for looking. X

Yay!! Good to see you back in blogland :) Lovely card, very textural and collage-y. The box design is wonderful, like a mini basket effect :) Px

Should be ok (more than ok) for your neighbour. Love the card Anne and the idea of the 'box'for it is so novel.
Love it and glad you are back blogging.
