HAPPY BIRTHDAY POP-UP THINLITS CARD



If you look a little farther down on this blog you will see that I posted a video on how to use the thinlit dies.  It would help you to watch it before you make this card.


5 1/2 x 8 1/2" crushed curry cs--fold in half

5 x 8" melon mambo cs---fold in half--
You will see the arrow points on the thinlit die.  Line them up with the fold line & run it thru the Big Shot.  I used the Precision Base Plate & the Big Shot Die Brush. Carefully fold it so that the center will "pop" when the card is opened.

Carefully tape or glue this to the inside of the card.

On a piece of scrap melon mambo cs cut out the happy birthday for the front of the card.  I used the Precision Base Plate & the Big Shot Die Brush.  Trim it to fit nice on the front of the card.

4 x 5 1/4" It's my Party DSP
Punch the bottom right corner with the Curvey Corner Trio Punch
Cut & tape a piece of ribbon on the DSP (I used a discontinued ribbon that I had.)
Tape or glue onto the card front.

Use the fine tip glue to glue on the Happy Birthday.
Gold & Clear Wink of Stella was used on the candles & Happy Birthday.

2) 1/2 x 5" DSP--I taped this on the inside of the card for a little extra.

SELF CLOSING BOX




I used some older Designer Series Paper for this box.  The colors are Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral & Coastal Cabana (discontinued)

8 1/2" x 6" card stock
Score at 4" & 8"


Turn the cs & score at 1" & 5"
See the picture below.



Turn the cs to the original way.
Score at 2" & 6" down to the score line.


Now place your cs on a piece of foam.  Take a ruler & use you scoring tool to score diagonally from the 2" line to the left edge & score line.  Now go from the 2" score line to right to the corner of the score marks.  Repeat this with the 6" score line.  You are making triangles. You can see this in the picture below.


Cut the 2, 4 & 6" score lines down to the score line.  Trim off the 2 corners--This will be the flap to close the box.


Carefully fold on all the fold lines.

Use a strong tape (Tear & Tape is good).  Put the tape on the flap & fold the box over & it will be sealed.


2) 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" Designer Series Paper
Mark the center & cut from the mark down to the corner.  Do this to both sides.

While the box is still flat apply the dsp to the box.  You will use all 6 pieces.


Use the Decorative Dots embossing fold for the top of the box. 
Tie a small bow & put on the top with a glue dot.



Bunny Back
1" circle punch is body--white cs
3/4" circle punch is head--white cs
Petite Petals flower punch is ears--white cs You will be using 2 petals.
Tree Builder punch-the small flower is the tail--pink cs

Sponge all the edges with a light pink ink.
Use glue dots to put the bunny together.


Use the smallest Oval Framelit for the background for the bunny.

Use glue dots to put the bunny on the background oval & mount on the front of the box.

Now you can use a strong tape or glue to close the bottom of the box.

I hope you liked this box.  I thought it would be great for Easter candy.  A gift card would also fit inside nicely.  Change the color & DSP, and it would be great for any occasion.

Butterfly invitation card

I made a couple cards for my niece to pick from.  She needed wedding shower invites.  We started out with the card on the right.  Those were the colors she wanted.  Then I changed the colors a little.  I had to keep the butterfly purple.  Well, she likes the colors on the left better.  So that is what I will be making for her.  I always like the way you can change the card just by trying different colors.  Which one do you like?

#IMBRINGINGBIRTHDAYSBACK   This is a new stamp.    
Be sure to click on the link below.  It tells all about it.  It is available starting today.  The first shipment sold out, so SU has made more!  The cost is $12.00 and it is a wood mount only.  I think this is a great idea!
