Xander's 7th Birthday Card

Our sweet little friend Xander turns 7 in June. His family and friends celebrated his special day a couple weeks early with a pool party at his Mimi's house. Since we have known and loved his family since he was 3, a special card was in order. 

Enter the Lori Whitlock a2 box card. These designs are a little time consuming to cut and assemble, but they never cease to wow the recipient - and I always know they will turn out stunning!

One trick I figured out for these cards: use a needle to run the twine through the little banners, then put a little pop dot behind each one. Since the flaps fall down when the card comes from the envelope, the banners can get a little messed up or tangled when it's opened. Using the pop dots helps keep the look natural, yet keeps everything in place.

{Supplies: Neenah Desert Storm card stock for the base, Studio Calico grid paper, pop dots, Studio Calico Color Theory ink in Orange County, twine by American Crafts, orange cardstock by Bo Bunny, and an assortment of scraps from SC kits}
