Happy Birthday Box

Today we have Jennifer Edwardson sharing a great alternative to a traditional birthday card.
I’ve seen these great pop up cards but had never tackled one until now and I love how it came together.  I used a Silhouette cut file and 4 spring colors of Core’dinations cardstock Graphic45 Signature Series.  One of the many great things about Core cardstock is how well it cuts through any die cutting machine.  This is an A2 size card so the cuts are very detailed and quite small and the cardstock cuts great!

Once I had the green, blue and red pieces cut, I ran them through my eBosser with a couple of embossing folders and then lightly sanded them each to make the patterns pop !! I loved adhering all the bits to the inside so when it is ‘opened’ the flowers open up too.  A little butterfly punch and a birthday sentiment and this card is ready for my Mom’s birthday.

Today we have some cards from Debbie Standard for Mother’s Day.

I love using my Xyron adhesive runner for these delicate swirls so that I can sand them. Simply cut your swirl from your die cutting machine and then run it through your Xyron adhesive runner. Before you take it off the paper you can sand it without risking tearing it apart.

After cutting the flowers from a Spellbinder’s die, I curled them over a Fiskar’s tool and sprayed them with Mister Huey’s shine mist.
