Pop-out Flower Vase Card

I really enjoy the Card-in-a-box technique (also called a Box Card or Spring Card), so I've been wanting to try the Box-on-a-card version I saw on CraftyGirl's blog. I wanted to create a simple scene, so I kept to a white-and-blue color combo except for the bright images.

The background is a textured white cardstock. The window is cut with a MFT die from an off-white, textured, adhesive cardstock from DCWV. The bottom border is cut from the same adhesive paper. The "vase" is a DP from Graphic 45. It's 2.5 inches tall, scored at 2 inches to create a box that folds flat to fit in an envelope. The tags are from Sizzix/Doodlebug die/stamp set, and I attached them with a brad so that they could fold in when mailing.

The flowers & bee are from a Sizzix/Hero Arts die/stamp set. Instead of using black ink for the stamps, I used different greens for the flowers & orange for the bee. The images are colored with Copic markers and glitter pens. I also added some detail with Liquid Pearls.
