To My Valentine - Pop-Up Box Card

This past weekend, some of my best friends came to my house to celebrate two of their birthdays (look for a post about the party and a quick tute for a fun stamped favor this week). It was so much fun! We almost always try to do some kind of papercrafting project, and I was excited to show them how fun and easy the pop-up box card from Splitcoaststampers is to make. They all loved it and couldn't believe how quickly it goes together - which means you can get right to the fun of decorating it!

Since Valentine's Day is just a couple weeks away, we all decided on that theme. Of course, I had to use lots of Sizzix dies and some of my favorite stamps and papers from Tim Holtz. If you haven't had a chance to check out the tutorial for this cool card, make sure you do. It is so much fun! Here is a link to the steampunk birthday card I made using this tutorial. I tell you...addicting!

Nearly everything I used can be purchased from Inspiration Emporium via the links below (the tiny hearts are an older Sizzix die). Remember to use my coupon code - stamptramp - to save 10% on your order!

  13. I love this, and want to drop everything I'm doing and make it! The bad part is I'm rearranging my studio space, and everything is everywhere. But this will give me the motivation to get moving so I can play. Thanks for sharing your wonderful creations!
