Poppin' Box Birthday Card

Linda Vich Creates: Poppin' Box Birthday Card. Succulents decorate this box that holds a 3D surprise for the recipient
After seeing so many of these really neat box cards that when opened allow a box to spring out I decided that I wanted to tackle one for my neighbor, Debby, for her birthday. Jan B recently posted a tutorial for one so I gave it a try!

I will not try to describe how this card was created since Jan did such a good job and I think you really need the video to see how this is done.

I did CASE Jan's design but changed it up by adding some succulents to the card box decoration and the letters/numbers I added to the pop up cube were H, B, 2, and U. I also used some of the now retired Sweet Sugarplum Ribbon from the Glitter Combo Pack.

The box was decorated with DSP from the 2016-2018 In Color DSP Stack and Whisper White. The cube was created with Sweet Sugarplum card stock and decorated with both Sweet Sugarplum and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. The Large Letters and the Large Numbers Framelits were used to cut the characters for on the cube.

For the succulents, I used Mint Macaron card stock and sponged the pieces with Sweet Sugarplum and the tips with Rich Razzleberry. To dress the succulents up, I added some of the metal rimmed pearls.

Here is a very short video to show hwat the card would look like when a recipient opened it.

I'm really pleased with how this project turned out! Have you tried one of these box cards yet? Give Jan's tutorial a try!
