box card 3This is a fun project that is showing up all around so I figured it was time to make myself one and teach YOU guys how, too!

Gather your supplies:
– A stamp set for the occasion you need the card for
– Punches are great for the ‘popped-up’ pieces
– Window sheet for mounting the pieces  (item #114323)
– glue dots (item #103683)
– embellishments like rhinestones (item #119246) or pearls
(item #119247)
– cardstocks and matching designer series papers
I have the Sweet Sorbet DSP on my box which is a FREE selection during
Sale-a-Bration   with a minimum $50 order (Sale-a-Bration ends March 31st, 2014)
– scoring tool and paper cutter (Stampin’ Trimmer item #126889)

This card is almost an illusion card, but definitely a WOW!  It looks like it is a pop UP box, but it really is a flop DOWN box.  It will fold nicely and fit in a regular A-2 envelope and not need extra postage if you control yourself on the layers and the embellishments.

If you are hand delivering this, bring on the layers and the bling!  This card is great to let your creativity out!
