Pop Up Box Cards

Fun Birthday Pop-Up Box Cards

Hi everyone, today I’m sharing these bright Pop-Up Box Cards.

Fun Birthday Pop-Up Box Cards

You know how much I love making these cards, I’ve lost count with how many!

The colourful Paper Addicts ‘Viva Forever’ pack had a cool garland trim which I thought would work well with this style card.

This paper pack is available from Amazon here.

The cute Llama image is from the Sweet Dixie ‘Party Animal’ stamp set, I thought it worked perfectly with these papers.

I coloured these using my Arteza Everblend markers, I didn’t do any blending, just block colour.

The great thing about these cards is that they fold flat and fit nicely into the envelopes I made.

They also have plenty of space to write your message.

  1. Hi Sam
    Great card (as usual!)
    Did you know that you can round off the pointy bits on your envelopes by using the little rounder tool at the top of your envelope score board?

  2. What an enjoyable card Sam. You always seem to come up with different types of cards for us. Thank you so much for your creativity. TYFS
