TBT - Mother's Day Card-In-A-Box

For my second Throw-Back Thursday I thought I would share this card-in-a-box. I followed the instructions of Tanya Bell for a card that would fit into a standard Australian envelope. If you haven't tried your hand at a card-in-a-box, they are quite simple once you get your head around them, and have a great wow factor. The retired items used here are the patterned papers, from the Floral District and Sycamore Street packs. I have a bad habit of buying pretty papers and then being precious about using them... but they always look better when on display as part of a creation!
