MC May/14 - Card in a Box - Lilies - HB card
card closed
I've resisted making a card in a box for quite some time. To me it was just too flat and I really wanted it to "pop up".. but that's for another day.
Usually these cards are square, but I decided to make mine rectangular. I've also got a hexagon one going.

And the reason I broke down was because one of our quilling gals is going to be demoing it at our next quilling session - so I figured I'd get a jump start on it and finally make one. BIG GRIN.

Anyway you can see all the details and descriptions by clicking on either card image. Enjoy

This looks anything but flat when it's all popped open. That's the whole great surprise of it. I'd like to try one of these. Yours turned out beautiful!
