I hope you all had a great weekend! I had a super crafty weekend. Friday I made 2 CAS cards AND a little book where I store my spellbinders. I will post some pics later! Oh yes, and this was all done after 8pm! Saturday I spend the day making 10 more CAS cards, and today, well today I spend making this card. A dear friend of mine send me a template for a very similar type of "box" bottom. I swear, I took one look at it and knew I didn't have the patience to make it. You have to have at least 2 PhD's and have to be - and this is a requirement in order to make it - a full time Rocket Scientist with at least 30 - 40 years under your belt. I then went on search for another tutorial to make the bottom. I came across Norma, from www.frommycraftroom.blogspot.com, who had a link to Stempeleinmaleins frame card tutorial. I made it a few times, her directions are really super. One thing I didn't like was the fact that the sides were open. I wanted to make a little box that doubles up as a card. So I took her tutorial, which you can find HERE, and altered it quite a bit.
Here is my card:
I wanted to do a quick tutorial on how I made this, but after running through the steps, realized my template needs some more work. I will do a post on the tutorial later in the week! So please check back!
