Pop-up Box Card, I knew it would be the perfect card to make my son for his birthday this month. This is the second year in a row that he's been deployed in the Middle East over Thanksgiving, Christmas, AND his birthday, so I wanted to make him something really special. And I guess it did the trick - he loved it!
For this card, I wanted a masculine look and decided to go with a 'time' theme (seems like I am hooked on that theme lately!) All the paper I used is from Prima's Engraver paper pack. I cut out the clock image and added gears and spinners then adhered it to one of the cross pieces. More gears were added to the other strip. To give it a little more movement, I cut two strips of acetate and adhered them to the center piece. I punched circles from kraft cardstock and added Remnant Rubs with Luke's age (how is it that I have a 22 year old son?!) and added them to the top of the strips.
The pocket watch was cut from chipboard using Tim's Mini Pocketwatch die from Sizzix. On top of it, I added a Remnant Rub, one of the new Index Labels, and Chitchat Stickers. The top is tied with the new Jute String. Love that stuff!
I love including Vine videos so you can get a better idea of how the different pop-up cards operate. Isn't it just the coolest card?? It was also incredible easy to figure out how to put it together. Even though it looks really complicated, it is only a few scores and cuts.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I apologize for my lack of posting lately. I've been enjoying a bit of down time and recharging my creative batteries. I am itching to get back into the studio now, and can't wait to share more with you soon!
