I was asked to make a card for a special girl who was turning 10 this past weekend. She is a cutie with beautiful blonde hair and loves to play the guitar. I had recently see these box cards "pop" up all over blogland and I thought it would be the perfect interactive card for a 10 year old. I found the tutorial for the Pop-Up Box Card at Splitcoast HERE.

I found the perfect digital image from La La Land Crafts of the little girl with the guitar. I printed her and colored her with copics. I then cut her out and attached her to the card. I also cut out stars with several different dies, glittered and embossed them and attached then to some clear acetate. I also die cut the little girls name and age.

I used my clear Wink of Stella glitter pen on the band in her hat and also on her boots, as well as on the raised dots on the large embossed star behind her. Unfortunately, this was hard to capture with the camera but it adds a beautiful glimmer to the image.

I added a sentiment to the back and left a large area for her mom and dad to write a message.

I wish I could have been there to see her face when she opened it. This was one of those projects that I just loved making. I think I may have to make some more. ;)

  1. Well I think your card cinched it!! I am going to make one of these cards for a little girl who is doing chemo. Yours is so pretty and so wonderfully cute at the same time!! TFS your adorable BD card (box).

  2. Yikes! This is amazing - and I agree, I'm betting the expression on her face was very happy! What a wonderful card - you really knocked this one out of the ball park!


Sharing your thoughts makes my day and I appreciate that you take the time to leave me a comment.
