There are lots of templates on-line for box cards and you can change the size to fit whatever you would like to have popping out of them, and that is limited only by your imagination!
Sharon has covered the box with sticky-backed silver checkerplate paper, leaving gaps and adding split pins to give the impression of drawers.
The greeting sticker at the back is also available from Regal.

|FATHER'S DAY CARD|
She covered a plain Regal singlefold card with decorateive papers. The piece with the torn edge could be replaced with sandpaper or cork if you want to add more texture.
The die-cut tools are attached with little split pins. Paper Roses tool dies and the split pins can both be ordered from Regal Craft Cards. Just add some sticker letters to spell "DAD" and your done!

You could modify this by adding acetate to the front so that the card could sit up for display, or by putting all the decoration on the front panel, if you wanted to. If you fancied turning this into a more "masculine" card E.g. for Father's Day, just substitute the flowers for leaves,musical notes, cogs or omit all together (Or... if your man loves flowers leave it as is!)
If you can't find piano keyboard paper its a reasonably simple exercise to cut a couple of strips and make the keys. Ink the edges with black ink for extra definition.

I've embossed the front of a smooth white singlefold card (PL2) from Regal craft cards, and added a greeting sticker, a pre-made bow and three little rhinestones to finish.
It could be a 5 minute make depending on how quickly you can die cut - remember if you're using the same brand of die you can cut more than one piece at a time.
If you add an insert you will have to allow a few minutes more.f I found a once-loved and now hardly ever used hole punch in the drawer and used it to decorate a plain pale pink insert,which was secured to a slightly larger piece of paper in a darker shade. Both pinks were the same colours as the plains used on the front of the card.

As there is so much going on inside the card, I've kept the front very simple - just some decorative paper that reflects the shape of the die, a couple of ribbons (the black one secured under the patterned panel to hide the ends) and a silver charm.
I guess you could use this card for a lot of different occasions, or you could just sit it on your shelf for a cheery decoration.
