A Treat Box Card

Today is Heartfelt Creation Wednesday and I have something a bit different to share with you.  It's a treat box card.    You'll find a video tutorial here but I changed the dimensions to fit my image on the inside.

 This suitcase is fabulous for adding some dimension and fun surprises.  I added one of my favorite pictures, using the tag die.
