Pop-up Box Card for a 16th Birthday

Hi My Blog Friends

I hope you had a good weekend. We managed to get so many jobs done which was very satisfying,   my husband's back is better and we are cold free. Our daughter moved the last of her stuff out and this made it easier to get lots sorted. I am very keen to buy some craft storage in an attempt to tame my ever growing stash.

The card I am sharing today was another commission I do seem to be getting more commissions lately. It would be nice to be in the position to be able to fund my hobby.

It is quite a large card having been made from an A3 sheet of card which was scored on my Hougie board.

The flowers were punched,  the numbers were cut with some X-cut dies and the butterflies with a Sizzix die.

All the other mauve panels were embossed but I don't seem to have photographed them. I kept the front panel flat to take the sentiment which was made with a  Signature die and some tonic letter dies. I was very pleased that the name fitted on the panel.

This photo shows the slats across the box and how I arranged the elements once they were attached to strips of acetate. Of course it all packs flat to fit an envelope.

I did promise that if everything worked out with our daughter's rabbits I would share a picture of them. Well the good news is that everything seems fine and they are getting on well.

Aren't they cute and they are very affectionate with each other. We were helped hugely by CottonTails Rescue in Westbury, Wiltshire

I hope you have a good week with lots of crafting. 

Hugs Jackie
