I have been thinking about this card design since the Pop Up Box Card Die arrived. I was finally able to get the idea out of my head today!

Size: Pop Up Box Card fold to A2 size card
Extra Details: I began by die cutting; lots of die cutting. I cut the card base and braces from some black and white striped paper. I cut the stitched white rectangles from white card stock. The poles and banners were cut from two shades of gray card stock. The banners and one brace was die cut from some black and white text paper.
I find with this style of card that it is easiest to decorate everything before actually putting the box together. With this in mind, I began stamping next. I added grass to white rectangles that would be on the bottom and the three flaps that will fold down when the card is open. I added some clouds and a sun with colored inks. Using black ink, I added the sentiments, a balloon, and the Ferris wheel.
On a separate piece of white card stock, I stamped another Ferris wheel, a carousal, tickets, balloons, cotton candy, hot dog, burger, ketchup, and ribbon. I used colored pencils to color in all of the images on this sheet and on the pieces of the card base. Once, I was done coloring, I fussy cut everything out. I left a small white border around all of the images.
Then, I began assembling everything. I used strong double sided tape wherever possible and liquid adhesive on the smallest pieces, like the banner.
I love this card and it turned out way better than I imagined in my head.
