Hey, glad you could join me today! I’ve got a great card for the man in your life, and it works for pretty much any occasion. I’m making a Father’s Day card for my husband, but I’ve got a different version to share at the end of this post with a birthday sentiment. This is a pop up box card, and while it looks complicated, it’s actually pretty easy to make. I’ve got a video tutorial to explain the process:
I tried to keep this post short, since there’s a video, but here’s a couple more pictures for all the visual learners:
Here’s where I scored the paper. The blue lines were drawn with a pencil.
Cut along the white lines:
Here’s the dimensions of the other pieces I used:
Silver cabinet pieces – 3″ x 1 3/8″
Silver square – 2 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ (I used the Postage Stamp Edge die from Simon Says Stamp)
Red square – 2″ x 2″
Yellow square – 1 3/4″ x 1 3/4″
Plate – 1 1/2″ diameter
I thought you might wonder where to add a message, so here’s what I did. I cut a piece of red cardstock to 3 1/4 x 6 1/4, and attached it to the back with tape runner. This gives me space at the bottom for my stamp, which I heat embossed in silver. Note: It’s much easier to write your message before you attach it to the card!
And here’s a second version for a birthday. Who will you make this card for? Let me know in the comments, and I’ll see you next time!
P.S. Today I’m playing along with Simon Says Stamp’s Wednesday Challenge. Hope you’ll check it out!
