My father’s birthday is in a few days. I made a pop-up box card for him. Lawn Fawn just released their new die for this type of card, which I do not own. So I figured out how to make one on my own. I love the way this card turned out.

A close up of the images
Size: Pop up box card, fits in an A2 envelope
Extra Details: I started by stamping and coloring all of the images for this card. I used Distress Inks and water color pencils to add the color. Once the images were dry, I fussy cut them out.
Then, I began work on the card base. I started with an 11.5” by 4.25” strip of heavy card stock. To create the box shape, I scored the strip at 2.5”, 5.5”, 8”, and 11”. To make the pop open feature, I scored the strip the long way at 2.125”. Using my scissors, I cut each short score mark from the top edge of the card to the long score line. I cut the top piece off the small tab at the end of the strip. Using strong double sided tape, I adhered the box together.
I cut three small strips of the same card stock to the make the braces for the inside. They were 1” by 4”. I scored each brace ½” from each end. I used these tabs to adhered the braces to the inside of the box.
I die cut some green card stock with the Grassy Border Die, which I used to decorate the bottom of the card, each panel and the three braces. I added the images with glue dots. Lastly I added my stamping and the card was done.
