Terrific Tuesday Die Cut and Stamp Challenge Reminder

Just a reminder that the Terrific Tuesday Die Cut and Stamp Challenge over at PCW ends next week.
The theme for the fortnight has been Dr Suess and Reading and Melin has created some wonderful digital stamps and cutting files that you can get here.

I made this cute pop-up box card using a Sam I Am digital stamp that had been pre-coloured (you can download them coloured). I cut the image out and attached it to the pop-up piece of the card.

I cut the card using a cutting file I designed using Funtime 2010 software and cut it out using the Black Cat. I also cut the layers on the cut with the Black Cat then embossed them using the Cuttlebug. Added some dimension with distress inks.

The top layer on the pop-up piece was stamped with a bubble wrap stamp from Kaisercraft that I bought on Saturday. Edged the piece with distress inks before attaching it to the back.

I printed the sentiment using word art then cut it with a circle die and cut a backing using a scalloped circle. Embossed the edges of both before adding a bit of distress ink.

The card folds down flat for posting, as shown in the picture to the left. To open it up, simply pull the stand up piece out from the centre of the box.

I have done a video on making the pop-up box card and you can see it here.

I really encourage you to pop over to Paper Crafting World to have a look at the lovely files (and a freebie as well) that Melin has created to celebrate Reading and Dr Suess' birthday. She has also done some great St Patrick's day files.

This is a great card Janet I love the box idea for the base and that it folds flat to post if brilliant. I'll check out your tut later
