House Mouse Challenge No. 10 – Anything But a Card (Project 3 of 3) !!! and BLOG CANDY! :)

3x3 card boxes

3x3 card boxes

This was actually my first “Anything But a Card” project, but after I thought about it, I wasn’t sure it counted since it included cardz!   Each box has a set of four coordinating 3 x 3 cardz and mini envelopes~  I thought they would be cute to use as post-Christmas thank you cardz. 

I’ve also included a step-by-step tutorial of the Copic colors I used in coloring these cardz.  Please see below. 

**And, to thank you for putting up with ALL my crazy posts for today, I am offering one of these boxes filled with cardz as “blog candy” to one randomly chosen person who leaves a comment on this post!  The winner will be picked on Sunday, October 26th at 12:00 p.m. CT.  So if you would like a chance, please post your comment before Sunday at noon – Central Time.   Thank you.**  

Here are some closeup pictures:








Don’t forget to post a comment if you would like a chance to win one of these boxes with four cardz!  🙂
