Cards

Birthday in a Box

March 7, 2015
It’s been two weeks since my last post and I have so missed actually making a card.  So, last night I sat down and decided to make a Pop-up box card.  The instructions for the card were found on Splitcoast Stampers found here http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/popupboxcard/.  Being my normal nerdy self I of course did a test run in white cardstock to ensure I understood the directions and it was a lot easier then I thought it would be. The instructions give you a completed project that fits in a 6”x 9” envelope.  However, it does give instructions for variations like mine which is for an A2 card.
 Birthday in a box
 I created the box using Gina K Sweet Mango cardstock following the instructions in the tutorial and then it was time to decide on my characters.  So, I grabbed the Critters
on the Savannah by Lawn Fawn for my animals and a few extra elements from other Lawn Fawn sets, stamped them all out with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them
with Copic markers.  Once all of the images were colored I used the matching dies and cut them out.  I then used Lawn Fawn’s grassy borders die out of some green cardstock and cut them down to fit inside of the box.  I had a banner already cut out from the Stitched journaling die in white, so I smooshed some sweet mango on it to match
and also used the stars from the same set and cut them out in three different colors for some extra oomph.  Once my banner dried I used the White pigment ink and stamped happy birthday using the sentiment from the beep boop set and then brushed some gold perfect pearls over it.  I am not too sure about perfect pearls but I am sure as with everything the more I use it I will come to love it.  My banner was adhered using scoretape and the stars with multi matte medium.
Supplies used:
Paper: Gina K Sweet Mango for base, Hammermill #100 for images, Recollections green for grass, Purple, Orange, and Blue for Stars, and Hampton Art Ki Celebrate for DP;
Stamps and Dies: Lawn Fawn Critters in the Jungle and matching die, Critters on the Savannah and matching die, Beep Boop Birthday, grassy border, Stitched Journaling Die

Copics: Lion: YR21, YR23, YR24, E17, E18, E19, W5, W7, W9;
              Giraffe: Y08, Y17, Y19, E23, E25, E27, W5, W7, W9
              Grass: YG95, YG97, YG99
Extras: Wiggly Eyes and Perfect Pearls Gold
