Today I’m sharing a flower pop up box card made using dies by Rubbernecker Stamps. The main focus of the card is the new Cart and Cart Accessories #1 and are paired with several flower themed die sets listed below. I questioned whether I should post this card as I had a very difficult time getting good pictures. I took a few close up clear views to show off the different sections. I used the Square Pop Up Box Card Kit by The Paper Cut and Carta Bella Flower Market paper pad.
The Box Base and Layers
- Use the bone folder to reinforce all the score lines .
- Cut the designer paper layering pieces.
- Apply double stick tape to the back of all the layering pieces and attach to the inside back cover and flaps and the outside sections of the box sections.
- Apply double stick tape to the side insert flap, line the box sides up and attach the two ends together to form the box.
- Cut deckle hill sections to fit the three flaps and attach with double stick tape.
- Cut deckle hill insert sections using green cardstock. Cut and score both ends at 1/2″ in.
- Fold the deckle hill insert tabs, apply double stick tape to each tab and insert the tabs to the inside of the box.
- Note: The kit comes with three inserts for each box. I used five deckle hill strips instead of three to create a fuller looking grass are in the opening.
The Flower Cart
- Cut the flower cart using woodgrain cardstock and the awning using pink and white cardstock.
- Attach the white awning sections to the pink base using glossy accents.
- Assemble the cart parts and attach using glossy accents. (the detail parts of the cart are hidden by the larger pots of flowers)
- Apply mounting tape to the cart and awning and attach to the back layer of the pop up box card.
- Apply Vintage Photo ink to the cart using a mini applicator.
The Flowers, Pots and Garden Cart
- Cut the cart accessories parts and color using markers, distress inks and mini applicators.
- Assemble the accessory parts and attach to the cart using glossy accents.
- Cut and assemble the garden cart , attach using glossy accents and apply Vintage Photo ink with a mini applicator.
- Use pink and yellow cardstock to cut the tulips.
- Apply Wild Honey ink to the yellow tulips and Worn Lipstick ink to the pink tulips using mini applicators and attach the flowers to the stems using glossy accents.
- Use gray cardstock to cut the bucket and color using Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge ink and mini applicators.
- Cut flowers using light pink, bright pink and white cardstock.
- Apply Worn Lipstick and Wild Honey ink to the center of the larger flowers using mini applicators.
- Form the flowers using a stylus and molding pad.
- Cut several small ivy and leaf group sections.
Assemble the Flower Pop Up Box Card
- Arrange and attach the flowers in the bucket and flower pots using glossy accents.
- Attach tulip bucket to the side flap using mounting tape and attach a few stems to the grass using glossy accents.
- Attach flower pots to the garden cart using glossy accents and attach the cart to the front flap using mounting tape.
- Attach the garden boots to the flap using mounting tape.
- Tuck an ivy and flower section in behind the grass and attach using glossy accents.
- Attach the tulip stems to the back of the flower pot using glossy accents.
- Use mounting tape to attach the tulip pot to the side flap.
- Tuck an ivy flower section behind the grass and attach using glossy accents.
- Finish the card by attaching ivy and flower sections on both sides of the deckle hill sections in the box area to create the appearance of a path back to the garden cart.
I’m sorry the photos of my flower pop up box card aren’t more clear. I had a great time designing this card and putting all the pieces together and I’m a little disappointed that the photos don’t do the project justice. I’m sure it would help if I would go and take a photography class. LOL! If you would like more flower card inspiration you can check out my Pinterest Flower Card board.
