Card In a Box by Kay

For this month's challenge I thought I'd try something new & different.  I strayed away from layouts & created this dimensional mini card in a box.  I found a tutorial for this on YouTube and thought it was such a cute & creative project.  This little box card measures only 1 1/2" inches wide on each side & is approximately 3 1/2" inches tall (this includes the embellishments).
Here's this month's inspirational board created by our host Dana Tatar.  For the month of July, it's all about patterns...a 'pattern palooza' as Dana called it!  I found much inspiration in this board based on all the wonderful patterns/designs & colors this board has.  In order to join in on the fun your project must include at least three different patterns.  These patterns can come from anything--paper, stamps, stencils--you can even doodle them!
In this close up you can see the different patterns I used to decorate the box.  I created all the patterns with the use of designer paper by 7 Dots Studio.
The pop up embellishments are made up of a few digital stamps that I printed by this month's sponsor Jellypark (tree, bird & typewriter).  I added a bit of color to the stamps with color pencils.  The other embellishments are sticker elements & cutouts from 7 Dots Illumination collection & a chipboard element by Scrapiniec.
The best part about this little card is that you can fold it flat!  So create, decorate, fold, insert in an envelope & mail it to your recipient.  It's a simple as that.
Here's a side view of the card.  If interested in the tutorial I used to create this card in a box--you can find it here.

Now onto this month's fabulous prizes...
