Nautical Wishes in a Box...

Father's Day is on the way, so if you're looking for a different way to create a 3D masculine card, 
The Cutting Cafe has just the perfect file.  It's called Card In a Box.


The card boxes come in small and large sizes I (an envelope for each size is included in the file too) and here is a large box I've made for my Dad. The wonderful Happy Father's Day sentiment comes with many sentiments and images in the 


 Terrific how cheesecloth doubles as fishing net material.
