This is what I did with the inside of the card - often this part is basically ignored - but when my dear hubby asked what the "Everything" meant on the front of the card I decided this was a great way of making the meaning clearer.

There are just way too many talented people out there - I really need to find time to come up with my own designs but at the moment I'm enjoying CASEing lots of other fabulous ideas! I first saw these on Yvonne Campbell's blog and follwed the link she gave to Dannie's Designs where Dannie has put together an easy to follow video tutorial to make the boxes. Here it is for you to try it out -http://danniesdesigns.typepad.com/my_weblog/2008/04/card-keeper-tut.html

1 x 395g can sweetened condensed milk
100g butter, cubed
255g (1 ¼ cups firmly packed) brown sugar
2 tblsp glucose syrup
150g finely chopped dark chocolate (not cooking choc)
¼ cup Baileys
Brush a 20cm square cake pan with melted butter. Line base and 2 opposite sides with non-stick baking paper allowing it to overhang.
Combine the condensed milk, butter, sugar and glucose syrup in a saucepan. Stir over medium-low heat until sugar dissolves (~ 3min). Increase heat to medium-high and cook, stirring constantly, for ~15mins or until mixtures thickens and turns a deep caramel colour. Remove from heat.
Add the chocolate and liqueur, stir until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Pour into the prepared pan and smooth the surface. Set aside to cool.
Remove fudge from pan and cut into portions – you may need to keep fudge refrigerated.

When I first saw this little origami tree on a card on Sam Post's blog, Ryemilan's Stamping and Scrapbooking, I knew I would have to try it out. She very kindly posted the link to the tutorial from Pixie Shire so it was very easy to locate. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out - but think I'll have to work on the points for the next one!
