Birthday easel card box

I made this for my SIL Claire; who is married to my brother Peter.  Peter has Parkinson's Disease and also Alzheimer's Disease and is in a nursing home.  Claire has been very good to Peter.  I made her a bracelet which can be found here in this post.

Her birthday is August 11th and here is the card I made for her:

I used the tutorial that Joani posted on her blog here.

It was a lot easier than I thought it would be and I had a lot of fun with this project.  The card stock is from my stash.  The designer paper is from Stampin Up, the brad is from my stash and the stamped image is a Verve stamp.  I stamped the tulips twice and popped it up on the main image.  I was very pleased with how this project turned out.

I will be making Claire a necklace to go with the bracelet that I made for her.  I'm sure she will be pleased as punch to receive it.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Oma, sorry for not dropping in for so long. I hope you are keeping well and I am so sorry to hear of your Brother's illness.
You have made a beautiful job of the box card and bracelet. I am sure your SIL will love them both.
