A treat within a card from me today

Here is the project I have made for our challenge this week over at One stitch at a time The challenge this week is to use a digi image.

I have used an image called Birthday Boy which can be bought Here at Stitchy Stamps

I started to make a surprise pop up card (also known as a slider card) as normal. If you don't know how to make one of these there is a tutorial Here.

I have adapted it to make a 17cm by 14cm card but also wanted to adapt it to incorporate some Werthers butter candies so cut the inside of the second layer frame out with a craft knife and then made a box base and attached this under the slider card mechanism so instead of getting a message shown as you pull the ribbon upwards you can get to the sweets underneath. I then just added a piece of card measuring 17 x 14cm to the base of the box so it can be stood upright if so wished.

I coloured the image in with promarkers, added How Old !! in silver peel offs and edged the patterned paper and image with silver glitterations and added a sentiment cut using an oval nestie and a scalloped oval nestie and added some ribbon to pull the slider up.

Don't forget we are having our Pretty in Print contest during august so it would be great to see some of your entries in our challenge so please hop over and join us Here.

Good luck to everyone that enters.

  29. Hi Julie, This is such a fab gift, love the toffee box idea and the image and "How Old!" sentiment are funny together.

    You left a message on my blog about a "back to school" sentiment, while I'm happy to do one, there is actually a fab freebie on the Stampfairy site. Try
    to see if this is any good for your needs.

    There are some great images to go with it, and other freebies every Friday too. Let me know if it is ok, otherwise I'll have a go at a circle one for you.
