Ahoy! Pop Up Card

Hap-Happy Friday, friends!
I'm sharing today with 
as well as
I've created today's project with a focus on all three companies,
whom I all love and adore!  It was quite fun pairing up the Anchored Collection
with these adorable cutting files from Miss Kate's...but I think it totally works!

 There are a few different recipes online for making these; I've created my own to 
represent the size I was looking for.  
To begin, cut desired double-sided patterned paper to 7"X12".  
With the paper laying length wise, score the paper at 2.75", 5.5", 8.25" and 11".  
Turn the paper; score at 4".  
Next you will cut the paper to create the three flaps:  
cut the vertical score lines at 2.75", 5.5" and 8.25" just until the score line meets the horizontal score lineFold and glue the final 1" flap down to create the box.

So that you're able to add layers of die-cuts, stickers, etc., cut two (or three)
1/2" X 3.25" strips.
  From each end, make a 1/2" fold.  Glue the folds to the inside
edges of the box.  Now you can attach your favorite decorations to the inside.

For my card, I used cutting files from Miss Kate Cuttables!
On the front we have an adorable crab which I embellished with a Petaloo flower.

I wanted to further accentuate the whale's tail, so I added two splashes by attaching them 
to a thin strip of clear overlay and then adhering to the back of the whale.

The edges of the flaps were edged with some of the Petaloo Taupe ric rac trim.  
To the back, I added one of the Petaloo Sea Shell Pins to the top of the sailboat.  
 The box can now be folded flat and inserted into an envelope for mailing! 
 I think these look cute for simply displaying or using as a centerpiece for a birthday party 
or baby shower...lots of ideas!

Here is a list of products that I used; see the above for links to the cutting files.

  1. Awesome job on your cute box card! Great tutorial on the how to do it. I need to give one of these a try. I love the flower on the crab and whale tail with the sail boat floating by. Great way to add the extra splashes with the clear. Fabulous job!

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
