Birthday Box

Morning everyone,
As promised here is the special pop box card (not sure what to call it!) Box came from craftwork cards. I made it for my friend who's birthday it is today. Luckily she doesn't know my blog address, as she hasn't had it yet !!

I am really pleased with how this all worked out in the end- just hope she likes it !!
It was quite time consuming but well worth it for a special person (may make one for Zoe's birthday in March ??!)

Papers used were Paper Mania "Sweet Nothings" Pad. I love this pad and have used it loads - I'll be sorry when it runs out (soon) which is unusual as I normally get bored once I've made a couple of cards with a pad. Anyway I digress... The cupcake in the middle is a Sizzix die cut which I mounted on a piece of acetate cut from packaging as is a bit thicker than normal to make a pop up, wobbly cake. Topping cut from same paper, Cherry on cup cake and candles on side cake coated in Glossy Accents (not that it really shows), Die cut shapes on the sides were from a card making kit a friend gave me last year, as were the gems and stars on the bottom of the box. On the top of the box I used SU! Circle of friendship stamp, mounted on a paper flower from stash, which I inked in the same colour as I stamped in.

Note to Steph-- Yes we are!!! Soooo Excited!!!!

Thanks for looking and have a good day,

Sarah-Jane xx
