More than a Card

Hello Everyone!

Today I created something more than just a card.  This is one to display and hold a pad of post-it notes or any cube of paper.  This is for a friend of mine, for her birthday who always has a cube of paper sitting on her desk.  I felt it was time to dress that cube up.

I started with a 6x6" base card and scored at 5 3/4" and at 6 1/4" to allow for the card to lay flat when closed to accommodate for the box.  I then scored the front of the card to make the easel.
The box is made with a 4x4" piece of cardstock and scored at 1/2" on each side.  
I cut the front panel at 5x5" and centered in the front of the card base, making sure to only add adhesive to the bottom half of the panel.
Sentiment was framed on a Spellbinders die S5-218 Card Creator.

I used DCWV paper pack in The Preppy Princess Stack.

I used a Sherri Baldy My Besties Fancy Pants 

I used copic markers to color her and bring her to life.
I framed her on a Spellbinders die Labels 25 .

I added silk flowers using this technique
and paper roses using a 6 petal flower punch in various sizes.

Here is another look at the finished project
