Its very clever as you can keep the card out, it serves more than one purpose.I guess when you receive a card it normally ends up in a drawer somewhere but since this has this little calendar on its a lot nicer to keep it out maybe on a shelf, ontop of an open fire or somewhere else you display nicknacks and other objects.
I abselutely love the paper i have use, i bought a 12 x12 pack at hobbycraft, i cant remember the name but i can find out and add that information later.
Also this 60s tilda i think shes called i have been wanting for ages and its just recently i found it on ebay so i ordered this one and 2 others but i havent used them yet.
If your wondering where i get my personals rubberstamps from that is ofcourse on ebay too, as far as i know its not many who does it and especially not as reasonable priced, if i remember correctly he is called "longchai" or something like that anyway and i highly recomend him, i have bought severeal rubberstamps of him and they are always really great.
The butterfly is from the EK butterfly punch and the flowers are ebay flowers from wild orchid crafts: they have lots of awsome flowers in every size and colour, they also have their own website.

All papers on the card is bought in Uk, at my local craft shop,the swirl is prima i think, the rubbertsamp on the front i have no idea, i got it in a card swop.
The rubberstamp on the inside i bought at hobbycraft, the shapes i belive is mariannes or spellbinders but since i dont have a die cut machine at the moment i bought them on ebay.
The little notebooks i bought from Tesco, flowers are ebay or prima, butterfly is Ek punch, papers are bought at Hobbycraft, so is the rubberstamps used.
everything else is old stash i have lying around.
This is a notebook i made, its practical to have a book so you can write down everything and anything in.
All the papers are bought at my local craft shop in Dover, flowers and swirls are from ebay. and the edge punches is martha stewart ones.
This is a picture Frame i bought at Hobbycraft in Maidstone.Kent.UK, lucky me found it in a sale basket, a pitty it was the only one as it was really fun to make, it came with a bit of paper too so i used the paper included aswell as some of my own personal paper and stash, the picture inside it is of me and my darling Steve, its taken recently in a friends wedding.
This is a circle shaped canvas, i added this really nice decorating paper in this funny shape, the picture doesnt do it justise cause it is abeslutely amazing in real life.
The butterflies is en EK punch, most of the flowers are prima and the rest is things i have just gotten in the mail in swops
This is the front, its made so when you open the Tilda you get to the "real" inside of the card.
Here is in the inside panel of the card, very practical as you can write personal messages.
inside of the card itself, not the panel.
This is the back of the card and in the middle there is my personal rubberstamp.
Adding som photos of what i made as a wedding gift
i love making this box for pretty much everything as you can
fill it with so many different things.
Since this was a wedding gift i wanted to make it a bit romantic so thats why i added the wine glasses, some pink champagne and chocolate, and the naugthy gift which was marsmellows to dip in liquid chocolate .
It was a very popular wedding gift!!!
