This pop up card was so much fun to make! Once again, it looks a little complicated, but the basic concept is quite easy. I used the Broadway Birthday stamp set and dies with the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper. All of these items are being discontinued in May and are available only while supplies last. So, if they are on your wish list, make sure to order them today!
This card uses the colors from the DSP: Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Mango Melody, Terracotta Tile, Grapefruit Grove, and Daffodil Delight. The cardstock base is Coastal Cabana.
I started decorating by adding a few balloons to the background. I stamped these on Whisper White cardstock and cut them with the Broadway Lights dies.
At this point, you will have one box. Adhere your gift card holder to the front of this box. Add a couple more balloons to the front of the box as well. Be careful with your placement of the balloons. Make sure that you set them in place and then try closing the card. You can't put them very high up because if you do, they will poke out the front of the card when it is closed. When you are sure you have good placement, glue them down. I overlapped balloons and strings to have more areas where they were attached to give them greater stability.
To finish, add the second box in front of the first box. Like the first time, do this in a way so that the open edges are in the back and on the bottom so that they don't show. If you want to, you could add additional images to the front of this box as well.
This was such a fun card to make! I can't wait to give it to someone for a birthday, graduation, or other celebration!
