Pop Up Card in a Box featuring Create a Cupcake

The new Stampin’ up catalog is here and while I excitedly placed my first order from it yesterday, I thought I would show a few projects today and tomorrow that feature some fun ideas and products that are going away after tomorrow.  The first project (well both today and tomorrow) will be card in a box – just in two different sizes!

This one features the Create a Cupcake stamp set that is retiring after tomorrow.  I’m a bit sad because I really like the sentiments that go with this set…. here is the sentiments I used from the set for the backside of the card.

Now you may be thinking… how is this considered a CARD when it looks like a BOX?  Check it out, here is what it looks like in an envelope:

Crazy, right?!  It totally fits!  That is the brilliance of this card design.  It folds down flat to be a mailable card but when the recipient pulls it out of the envelope it pops open to be a box with fun jiggly bits that can sit on their table or shelf.

This is what it looks like when it is collapsed flat after they pull it out of their envelope.

I thought my outside needed something which is why I added the Coastal Cabana cardstock with some stamping from the Perfect Pennants stamp set.  I also used that same set for the front “Make a Wish” sentiment too.  So happy this set at least is continuing on into the new catalog. Smile

And if you like the cupcakes, (they really do make fun birthday cards)… or as one person said, muffins for her holiday baking.  You have two options right now:


Create a Cupcake Stamp Set (retiring 6/4)~OR~  Cupcake Partyboth of which coordinate with the Cupcake Punch


These cards aren’t hard to make, just time consuming to decorate if you get fancy.  Smile  I have to find my instructions for putting them together but I’ll post them TOMORROW if you want to stop back by to see the other horizontal design for this style of card.

I’m getting ready to close my first Product Sampler / Product Share for the new catalog! If you are interested in samplers for the new designer papers or ribbon, make sure you let me know ASAP!  Details can be found here.
