There Ought To Be A Law…

There sure should be a law that cute little grandsons can’t grow up. We are celebrating my youngest grandson’s birthday…he is turning six. This little guy is too pretty to be a boy. Great big brown eyes with the longest lashes you’ve ever seen. But since he insists on having another birthday I’ve made him this card…

And here are a couple of side views…


And the other side…


This was fun to put together thinking how much he will enjoy it.  There are three different stamp sets used here (I can’t seem to stick to just one), but there are all active sets and you could easily make this cowboy card in a box.  Here are the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Tangelo Twist cardstock.  Motley Monsters DSP.
  • Ink:  Soft Suede, Tangelo Twist, Memento Black plus Blendability Pens Smoky Slate, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and brown skin tones
  • Stamps:  Photopolymer Alaphabet, Photopolymer Yee Haw and Bootiful Occasions
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Stars Framelits, Rhinestones, Linen Thread


  • The base card of Crumb Cake is 5 1/2″ x 9″.  If you need a tutorial on the card in the box technique, check out my YouTube video here.
  • The  DSP panels measure 2 3/4″ x 1 7/8″.  The back panel is 5 1/” x 1 7/8″.
  • The scoring on the long side of the Crumb Cake panel is at 2 1/8″, 4 1/4″, 6 3/8″ and 8 1/2″

Once you get started decorating these boxes you will have so much fun.  The items inside the box are placed with Window Sheet pieces so the pieces seem to float.

If you watch the YouTube video and still have questions, be sure to leave me a message or email me.  I’m always happy to help you.

Here is your “B-ism” for today…”Happiness is meeting an old friend after a long time and feeling that nothing has changed.”

This has been a very busy day in the studio and I’m very inky…but HaPpY!
