Congratulations Pop Up Box Card

Hi there!
I'm on the CutCardStock Creative Blog today!
Do you have a card style that is your favorite to create? 
I do and it is the Pop Up Box Card! 
I love making these for any occasion and 
I think this one turned out beautifully using card stocks from 

I cut a piece of the BASIS BLACK CARDSTOCK to 10 1/2 x 7 inches for the card box base and scored at 2 1/2, 5, 7 1/2 and 10 inches along the long side. Next turn so the short side with the 1/2 inch score line is across the top and score at 3 1/4 down to the last score line.

Remove the top part of the 1/2 score line to form a tab on the bottom and cut along the other 3 score lines down to the horizontal score line, this is all on the 3 1/4 inch end.

Now we are ready to decorate the box and flaps. I used the CLASSIC LINEN GOLD PEARL CARD STOCK and cut 3 2 1/4 x 3 1/2 inch pieces, 3 2 1/4 x 3 inch pieces and 1 2 1/4 x 6 3/4 inch pieces.

The 3 1/2 lengths are adhered to the bottom of each panel of the scored piece of black card stock. Turn the black piece over and adhere the 3 inch pieces to the panels that are cut. Fold the black card into a box and adhere the tab to the inside of the unscored side to form the box. Adhere the 6 3/4 inch piece of gold to the back inside panel.

Next I cut 3 pieces of CLASSIC CREST RECYCLED 100 NATURAL WHITE CARD STOCK to 2 1/8 x 2 7/8 inches and a piece measuring 2 1/8 x 6 5/8. I opted to die cut a border on each of these pieces, centered and adhered over the gold. Now you need 2 pieces of 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch pieces to hold the pop up elements. Score these pieces at 1/2 and 3 inches along the long side, fold to form tabs and adhere to either side inside the box.

I die cut several pieces of each of the card stocks in different size stars.

These pieces are then adhered to strips of various lengths of acetate and attached to the 2 strips inside the box. I also die cut a few flourishes to add. The sentiment was stamped, embossed and die cut before adding to the front flap.

I hope I’ve inspired you with this project! If so, please leave a comment below, and we would love for you to connect with us on our Facebook Page.
