Pop Up Box Card

Pop Up Box Card
          Hi friends,I am sure you will agree that Pop Up Cards are very special cards not only because of the fun element but because they are flat folding and easy to mail. One problem with pop up card designing is to add that extra bit of oomph without adding bulky embellishments and dimensional flowers!

        This is my designer post for  Crafters Corner , India's leading online Craft Supply Store . I had taken a break from Crafters Corner DT duties last year when life threw me a few curves and I was not able to handle everything!Now things have settled  down and I am so thrilled to be rejoining back with Shalini [ owner of Crafters Corner] in the capacity of Blog Educator which gives me a lot of freedom which was not possible in the role of DT.
       
In this post I am showcasing gorgeous glitters and micro pearls from DMC[dress my craft]!
Glitters and Micro Pearls
In the photo below you can see the  micro mini pearls which are the most gorgeous tiny pearls I have ever seen...a real luxury item to add to those special cards, scrapbooks and home decor projects!
Micro Mini Pearls
I used glossy accents and tacky glue to  add these teeny weeny micro pearls. They were  the perfect light weight embellishments to add that extra element of pizzaz to my Pop Up Card !
Pop Up Box Card
My most favorite amongst the glitters was surprisingly the rainbow glitter chunks...oooh they added such a shimmery sparkling dazzle....!!
Rainbow Glitter Chunks
I used the dazzling rainbow glitter chunks on the cattail reeds, tiny flowers and around  the birthday sentiment.
Pop Up Card
In the photo above you can see a part of the card before jazzing it up---so dull and insipid!A little bit of glitter can truly transform a project isnt it!!! Some projects do look good with a muted look but this was after all supposed to be a cheerful birthday card so I loved how the glitters transformed the whole card!
Pop Up Box Card
If you want a muted subtle shimmer use micro fine glitter or micro sparkling dust.
Fine Glitters
I used both of these glitters on the tiny mushrooms and the little hedgehog and cute mice [ Penny black stamps colored with Zig Watercolor Brush Pens ]
Pop Up Box Card
This card was indeed a labor of love...I took nearly a week to finish it [hehe as I could only squeeze in bits of crafty time here and there during the week] .I have used dozens of dies[ see list below] and the card has 4 layers with grass , tiny flowers and cattail reeds in front of the adorable mushroom house.
Pop Up Box Card
The beautiful butterflies[ a winnings from Mrs A's butterfly Challenge  many moons ago] on acetate strips flutter magically above the flowers and swing prettily on moving the card.Added the mice couple behind the blades of grass and a splattering of tiny hearts for a romantic touch!!

I hope you liked my whimsical pop up box card!
