Hoppy Holidays with Pop Up Box Card

 Hi crafters and welcome back!  Joy here today with a fun pop up box card to continue the Christmas in July festivities.  I just knew when I saw the adorable stamp, Hoppy Holidays with its cute little holiday picks coming from the envelope, that it had to be a three dimensional project.  The best part is it is easy to create!  

To make this card stamp the Hoppy Holidays main image 4 times and color it with your medium of choice.  In this example I colored them with Copic markers.  This does have a coordinating die, but in this case I used my cutting machine.  In addition to cutting out the colored image, I also cut it out onto solid paper to hide the marker bleed through.  This step is optional, but I think it gives it a cleaner presentation.  

To construct the box for this card you will need to cut out 2 pieces of cardstock measuring 2in x 6.5inch and score them at 3 and 6 inches.  On each rectangle adhere the colored envelopes from Hoppy Holidays onto them and then adhere the flaps to each side forming a box.  

My final step was to stamp and heat emboss the sentiment onto a banner.  A fun and easy tip for making a dimensional banner is to clip the chevron edges off and then pop up the center with foam tape.  This gives the illusion of ribbon tails.   Again, this is optional, but takes your card making to the next level.  

I do hope you will give this card a try!
