Pop Up Box Birthday Card

I love box cards . . . they become a display piece to show off and have so much more visual interest than a ordinary card.  I created this one using the Cricut All Occasion Box Card cartridge.  I actually combined elements from two different box cards to create a very unique card for my nephew.


I really loved this cardstock with balloons all over it, but it was a busy pattern so I have had this cardstock for a long time but have not found the right project for it . . . until now.  The balloons made a perfect backdrop for this card, and since it has variety of colors in it, that allowed me to coordinate a lot of different solid colors for the pop up elements.


Below you can see the inner piece of the card that all of the elements attach to.  It folds in a zig zag pattern and attached to the inside of the box.  This allows you to easily fold the box flat to put in an envelope.  I cut this in the same green as the base of the box so that they would visually blend together . . . yes, you will still see it when you look at the card, but it will not stand out.


Instead of doing the cut that said CELEBRATE to place on the banner, I cut more stars and wrote my nephew's name on the banner.  I thought this was a fun way to personalize this card.
