I had never really given the pop up box cards much thought, I thought they were fun but not really a "card" until I decided to make one. That is after looking at tons of them and watching a few tutorials. I have to admit I'm a bit smitten now that I have made one, I kinda want to make a dozen of them!
I used The vintage Christmas digital set from Crafty secrets and cut the snowflakes with my Silhouette and colored them with copics. There are lots of tutorials out there and the one from Splitcoast Stampers is a great basic way to get started.
here is my card when folded, it's flat enough to send in the mail, but when opened what a surprise! :)
I used sweet little sticker alphas to create a greeting, and a gem snowflake that's been in my stash for longer than I can recall! ( we all have some dusty old beauties don't we?)
