I'm so excited about this card I just can't wait to share it! Yesterday I went to Lowe's to pick up some Christmas gifts for my Dad. Since I was actually by myself (a rarity!) I took a few minutes to browse some things I didn't need. I spotted a "teacher" ornament that immediately became something I DID need! So, I picked up one for each of my kids' teachers and then went on to find a few more things I "needed."
Once I got home, I decided that I needed (there's that word again) to craft something scrappy to use as a holder for these ornaments. The word "box card" kept ringing in my head. So, I set about the internet looking for just the right tutorial to match the vision I had. Nothing came close. So, out came the paper and pencil and I decided to figure it out. At one point, somewhere around the 5th template, my daughter remarked, "Mom, scrapping is kind of 'mathy,' isn't it?" Yes, dear for those of us who are anal-retentive, it most certainly is.
So, here it is on about the 7th try, and I really like the results. I plan to make a tutorial tomorrow-- or maybe even tonight since my afternoon coffee is still going strong. But here it is:
When you see the front, it looks like just a pretty Christmas card:
