When I needed a birthday card for a special friend for her 60th birthday (a special birthday for sure!), I wanted to make a “pop up box” card. Yes, the designer paper, Birthday Basics, is retired, but I love it so I used it for this personal card. The base (box) is Crisp Cantaloupe. You can see a photo of the front down below.
Even though the designer paper is retired, the stamp sets are new and current! The banner on the front flap is stamped with the Banner Banter stamp set and punched out with the Banner Punch. I added some Candy Dots to make it look like it was strung across the flap. I LOVE the Candy Dots! They come in the color families and only cost $5.95. Just a cute touch to your cards and projects! Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Baker’s Twine is tied around the front flap.
The cupcakes are from the new stamp set Cupcake Party and punched out with the Cupcake Builder Punch. (See some more Candy Dots on the cupcakes?!) The “60” is from the Memorable Moments Stamp Set. The greeting in the back is from Chalk Talk and cut out with the coordinating framelits. You can buy the Chalk Talk Bundle and save 15%! The “Celebrate You” greeting is also from the Cupcake Party stamp set.
Here is the front of the pop up box birthday card:
