Pop Up Box Card!

Hello peeps~
Here's one more pop up box card that is added on to my V-Day list.   I've got more that I'm working on and will get them posted in between of my other commitments that I'm doing at the moment... They are super easy to put together, for this pop up box I decided to use my CAC 2 for the monkey and the bananas.  The monkey was cut at 3" and the bananas at 2".  The envelope and heart dies are from My Creative Time, the rosette is Tim Holtz added a button on it with some hot glue and the paper are last years stash from Pebbles.  I also had the edges distressed with Tim Holtz (picked raspberry) and I scored 1/8" on all panels of the box card in and outside to give it some added look.  I'm not sure if you can see it but it's there.

Folded so you can see that it's also mail-able

My first birthday pop up box card for 2014!

Hello peeps~
Hope your New Year's Eve and Day was fantastic and fun.   Both hubby and I spent most of today just lounging.   It was too much of everything, or you might say a little bit of a hang over..  We spent the eve over at my son's house and boy did we have a firework show from the neighborhood.   Their was so much of everything from all the variety of food, especially the sashimi, and all the different type of poke's.  I drank sake, wine, beer and boy did I feel so yucky today.    But all in all we had so much fun.  

Anyhow I got myself to work on  this fun project even if I wasn't that up to par.   It kept my mind alert and took me a bit longer to get it finished but it's just a super cute project to make for any occasion.   I think I will be doing more of this again soon.   Since it's the beginning of the New Year it's time to start working on all my birthday, anniversary cards and what ever else that comes along the way, LOL!
Here's my first pop up box card, I made this for my son's girlfriend since her birthday is coming up this weekend.  

BTW - this folds up and can be mailed out perfectly without being destroyed.  I didn't get a photo on time, since my stickles on my cupcake wasn't fully dried yet.   
But I used a bunch of different supplies here, and will get them listed. 
Here's what I used:
papers - Pebbles
Sixxix dies - hearts & cupcakes
Spellbinders ovals scallops
gems, stickles, ribbon, copic & spectrum noir markers
tag- My Creative Time
sentiment - My Craft Spot
Be back soon~
