Pop up box card

Hi all, 
I have found a new (to me) fold that I just love and would like to share with you all.
I found the tutorial on how to do this HERE, it is very easy to follow and you can do lots of different styles with it.

I wanted this one to be like a box of flowers you get from the florists, but without the hassle of having to feed and water the roses lol.
I wrote mum on mine but any sentiment could go on here really, and with a lot of hospitals not allowing flowers now this might be a good theme for a get well soon card.

I made this one for my Husbands valentines card, this was the first one I had made. 
I kept this one quite simple as the red and silver miri cards, made the embellishments stand out.
The sentiment was heat embossed with glitter embossing powder.

I hope you give it a go as it is very simple and great fun.
They fold to fit in a flat envelope so no need to worry about making a box to fit. 

I would like to enter these challenges-
