Truly, I was so excited at the thought of writing this blog post! A first time for me. Today, I finished off working 13 days straight and tonight I celebrated by making dinner for my husband and I, started some laundry and making a card. Not any ordinary card but a pop-up box surprise card!!!! After seeing a friend on Facebook make one with no die, I thought “If she can do it, I can atleast give it a try!” I went to where I love to go to and that is YouTube and found this tutorial (I am not taking any responsibility of an original idea in any way):
And she is from Splitcoast Stampers. I did NOT do it exactly as to how she did it. I did not put paper on the outside and I am super tired and so I did measurements that made sense to me and I don’t think I can reduplicate at this point. However, I want to sit down and give it a try one more time. But here is what I ended up with!
The base and panels of this card is made with DCWV “The Birthday Wishes Stack” 12×12. The stars were cut out with a star from Recollections and the paper for those stars was out of my scrap bin. The stars were adhered to acetate and popped up in different directions. The “Happy Birthday” was from a magazine that I just die cut out, using a circle die and that finished this off! I understand it is a Happy Birthday to Simon Says Stamps and this is my first card helping them celebrate!!!
Thank you for stopping by and always appreciate hearing from you!
