Pop, pop, boo!

Good morning, Crafters :)

I hope you all had a lovely weekend?

Today's post shows you my first attempt at making a Pop up box card! looking back I needed to play around with the positioning of flowers but I know for next time! I got the measurements for the card here & must say it was a clear & easy tutorial.  I practiced on copier paper first, although a bit thin to use, it was a good thing to do as I didn't want to ruin any good card stock!

I decorated my card using papers from Crafter's Companion's  latest Inspiration issue 4 (Spring edition) the papers are fab to use & designs so cute.

Ingredients used:

Box card template
Centura Pearl cardstock
Paper elements from 
Crafter's Companion Inspiration magazine
 Crafter's Companion Collall glue
Spellbinders - adorning squares die
Happy Birthday die - free die from

So, for a first attempt, not bad, me thinks -  but there is room for improvement!

I think my next blog post will be me creating a card  using more papers from CC's Inspration magazine..

Stay tuned....

Until next time,
