3-D Thursday Project

You may have noticed that I didn't post yesterday.  I have decided to change my scheduled posts to Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.  This seems to make more sense than Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.  And in keeping with a TH theme, I thought many (I can't promise all) the Thursday posts will be three-D projects.  3-D Thursday!
Cards-in-a-box are one of my favorite types of cards to make.  I just love playing with the elements and filling the box!  And the recipients are usually pretty impressed.
I made this one for new neighbors.  It uses a retired Stampin' Up! stamp/die combo, but there are similar sets out there.  In fact, the sentiment comes from one made by Stampin' Up!.  I just didn't want to fussy cut the houses so I used the retired set with the matching dies.

I usually finish the outside of my box with a ribbon tied around it.  Sometimes there is a bow, others times not.  I always stick the ribbon to the card with some sort of adhesive, often snail adhesive.  
This time I used Tombow glue and you can see that was not the best idea.  I thought it would dry clear but on this ribbon, it did not.  On the back I placed a stamped and punched circle that said "Handmade by" to cover up the spot.
And on the front I added some buttons.  Fortunately for me the buttons mirrored the circles so they didn't look like an afterthought.  Moral of the story - when adding embellishments, check your adhesive method BEFORE using it on your card!

I hope you enjoyed this card today.  I have a list of some of the supplies with links to my Stampin' Up! website below.  If you order please use Hostess code 6924WDJ - valid through March 28.  (If you order $150 of products-before tax and shipping-do not use the code so YOU get the hostess benefits.)
