Valentine - Pop-Up Box Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I have seen pretty Pop-Up Box Cards and decided it was time for me to try this pretty card style. I followed the tutorial on Split Coast Stampers to make the box. Papers are from K&Company Valentine paper pads-- left over papers from previous projects. After making the box, it was fun time using my Cricut to cut the pretty Valentine images!

Cricut Cartridges:
Create a Critter 2 - Chocolate Box is cut 1.75" wide.
Disney Princess Dreams Come True - Double Hearts cut 1.50" wide.
Valentine's Day - Heart with the word Valentine written on banner is cut 2.75" wide. Valentine was written using the Write feature.
Feb 14 is cut 3" wide.
Heart of roses is cut 2.25" wide. I cut two of these - used one on each side flap.
Phrases - True Love Valentine is cut 2.25" wide. 
Sweethearts - Love heart stamp is cut 1.75" wide. 

The two Hearts of roses, True Love Valentine, and Feb 14 are pop-dotted on the card flaps. Some of the images inside the box area were attached to strips of acetate which allows them to move slightly when the card is opened.

I am pleased with my first Pop-Up Box Card. Of course, it is pinks and hearts, two of my favorite things! I think this will be my Valentine Card!!
