Spring Card and Box

If you fancy a change from the regular fold cards why not try a Spring card, they are so simple to make and fun to decorate, I didn't take a picture of the back of this card but there is room to put a verse on the reverse which makes it even pretty from behind. These cards can easily go into an envelope as they just squash down and pop up when taken out but as this was a special birthday card I decided on a box.
For a little change I put the ribbon on the bottom half of the box and I used the large oval punch on the top so that the bow would show through.
The flowers are made using little punches then I have embossed them from behind causing the leaves to curl, they were finished off by placing a little pearl bead in the centre.
