Birthday Card in a Box-die cut reveal-SOUS-Free download

Happy Friday fellow crafter's..
Us girls over at Stuck on U Sketches is having our Friday Die cut challenge reveal today and for this month, I am hosting the challenges :)...  I asked our design team to create any project with the theme 
I told the girls to add anything sweet.. cupcake, cookies, candy, lollipops, etc.. This challenge is real versatile and you can have so much fun with it, especially since Valentines Day is right around the corner.. Time to get those cards finished, aye ladies..LOL
and speaking of cards, I decided to create my very first "card in a box!".. I've seen some of these and then found a bunch on Pinterest and decided I HAD to try to give it a try.  I decided to create a template in the SIL software, so I could cut clean lines etc.. and I'm offering that template for you here for FREE.. It will only work with the Silhouette software, but you do NOT have to have the designer edition..
So, don't forget to grab that before you leave :)  It will be located in the Supplies used list..

oh, almost forgot all about my project..LOL
Here is what I created and this was really difficult to photograph cause of the shape...

remember to click on the photo to make it bigger.. and if you are wondering what those funky looking things in the glass jars are in the background, they are coffee pods for my Nescafe Dolce Gusto coffee maker..LOL

I added lots of fun Birthday elements to this card in a box.. I hope to send this to my only cousin who's birthday is on Feb 10th.. Wont' tell you how much she will be, cause it might be hazardous to my health..LOL

There is a big cupcake in there with the cherry and gifts on top of it.. lots of pink twine and my fav, white liquid pearls.. Yummy!!
 So much fun to make and my next one will be much easier since creating something for the first time always has its difficulties :)
and remember to email me or leave a comment if you are having difficulties or have a question, I answer all emails all the time..
