A Birthday Pop-Up Box Card

A Birthday Pop-Up Box Card

This was my very first Box Card. I had seen many in my crafty travels, so I finally sat down to create one. This is the card that I created for my Mother-in-Laws birthday this year. She loves everything that I create, so I always try to make her handmade cards.

I chose to work with a bright and pretty collection of My Mind’s Eye patterned papers, and then add the glitzy touch of gold with the Gold Star ribbon and gold sequins. When flattened the card will fit in a large 5×7 envelope, and our personal sentiment is written on the very back panel that is not shown.
