Happy Birthday!

Hello everyone!

Alexandra here from made by Alexandra sharing a pop up box card that I made using Party animals stamp set and the sentiment and banner from Alien invasion


I always loved interactive cards, and this pop up box card is just perfect too add all the critters from the stamp set when you don't know which one too choose :) , but also can be intimidating to create one! I remember that I saw lots of pop up boxes on Instagram but I felt like they are so hard to make .

But no ! They are very easy and also they create addiction :))

To start I cut a stripe of paper 12 cm tall ( scoring at 6 cm ) and 25 cm long.
Then I scored every 6 cm ,12cm ,18 cm and finally 24 cm leaving 1 cm to be able to close the pop up box. 
The upper part where the scoring is I cut were the scoring lines are so when the box is open you are able to see the critters inside.
Also I cut 3 stripes of paper 1 cm tall and 8 cm long to have were to put the critters inside the box.


Next I colored the critters from Party animals stamp set using Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers and also inked the entire box using Distress inks and to add  a bit of details I used a stencil.

The sentiment is from Alien invasion and the banner too . I adhered everything using strong tape and my card was done!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a lovely day!
