A new Fold #36

Hi there and welcome to challenge #36

Well i would like to say it is a glorious day but its not it is pouring with rain! whats new? yep i am in the lovely south west of the UK which when its sunny is absolutely gorgeous....i love the views round here.

We were lucky this week to be given images by Stitchy stamps to use in the challenge and i sort of went into the wrong folder and printed the wrong image but thankfully it was still a Stitchy digi...phew! so this week in a daft turn of events and coloured and made a pop up box using Pretty in Pink!

And was lucky enough to  be given the instructions for a popup up box by the lovely Kay at Hougie Crafts

So this one is a first for very first pop up box!

I was lucky enough to accidentally play with Pretty in Pink by Stitchy Stamps ( i printed from the wrong folder lol)

So here she is what do you think?

I made the pop up box via instructions from Kay and yes it was easy peasy....well until it got to adding the lovely stuff in the middle! and then i was all fingers and thumbs!

I used The Country Diary of an Edwardian lady papers for the front and inside of the box in two different colour schemes.  Then added some love ribbon around the outside of the box and a happy birthday die cut and sentiment on the front flap.

I used a combination of different coloured leaves at the back with my pretty in pink in the middle.   She was then surround by a variety of flowers and a few butterflies.  And some lovely green sparkly stars that looked just right.

I\ used the following Copics to colour her

Dress RV 02, 04, 06,YR 00. 01.02
Skin E 11, 21, 50, 51
Hair E 44, 47, 49, 39

I hope you like my first attempt at a pop up box!

  6. Your box was lovely. The first two pictures took forever to load so you might consider cutting down on the bytes a little. I usually make mine under 80KB. By the way, I would love to see the instructions on this. Where did you find them? Thanks so much for sharing with the Design Team at The Cheerful Stamp Pad.
