Couture Birthday! - Tri-Fold Card in a Box

It even has a Gift Card pocket!

Wanting to go a little out of the box (pun intended) with this card, I decided to create a Tri-Fold Accordion Card and include a hidden Gift Card pocket. I wanted it all packaged up in a pretty card box since it's too thick to go into an envelope. And, of course, I just had to use more of the Graphic 45 Couture collection. So here you see the card and it's companion box.

Now let's have a look at just the box.

...taking the lid off of the box...

...were you can see the card. When you take the card out of the box...

...every page of the card has a birthday greeting so that it can be seen from several angles (or could be for a set of triplets, hee - hee).

So, let's have a closer look at each panel...

Now we'll look at the back two panels, one of which has the pocket for a nice gift card.

So that's it for this set. Thank you for stopping by to have a peek and leaving your comment.

And, of course, Happy Papercrafting!

I too am an avid Graphic 45 fan. I met Aimee & Diane in May at Creative Down Under here in NZ. They are brilliant and that made my passion for the paper more personel. I love all your creations. TFS
