I just couldn’t wait to play with the February Stamp of the Month by Close To My Heart! It is called “Balloon Animals” and it has some adorable images and really great sentiments–just perfect for a kid’s birthday. Another CTMH consultant made a box card with these cuties and I thought I would make my own version!
I used the Kaleidoscope paper collection to decorate the box and coordinating ink colors (Honey, Pear, Thistle, Crystal Blue, and Pixie) to stamp the balloon animals.
A little green Shimmer Trim and stickers from the Penelope Complements were the perfect embellishments for this birthday box card.
The nice thing about these box cards is that they look really impressive when open, but can also fold flat to fit inside an envelope for mailing.
I had made box cards before, but couldn’t remember the dimensions I used. So I turned to You Tube to find a tutorial and wrote down the measurements this time so I can make some more really soon! I also saw there is a new Cricut cartridge that has all kinds of box cards for different occasions. I will have to check that out too!
If you like the Balloon Animals stamp set, you can get it during the month of February for only $5.00 with a $50.00 Close To My Heart purchase. Check back later this week to see some projects that I made with the other February promotion–Share the Love stamp set. It is awesome too! Have a great day! Laurie
