My project today is a Christmas cabin pop up box card made using several dies by Rubbernecker Stamps. I used the Cabin, Deckle Hills, Tree in Oval, Pine Tree Forest, Wildlife, Small Birds and Greenery #1. I used the Splatter Background stamp to create the falling snow on the sky and trees. I used the A2 Pop Up Box Kit by The Paper Cut for my card base.
Assemble the Pop Up Box Base
- Cut the layering pieces.
- 2 2″ x 5 3/8″
- 6 2″ x 2 5/8″
- Apply white pigment ink to the Splatter Stamp and stamp all the blue sky layers and emboss with white embossing powder.
- Attach the paper layers to the inside and outside card base using double stick tape.
- Apply double stick tape to the tab, line it up and secure the box closed.
- Cut the snow sections to fit the tabs included in the kit and attach them with double stick tape.
- Apply double stick tape to the tabs on both sides and insert them inside the box.
- Cut an additional snow sections and attach to the inside front of the box and the flaps using double stick tape.
- Cut the cabin using woodgrain cardstock and white cardstock.
- Attach the snowy roof to the cabin using a strips of rolled up double stick tape.
- Cut a piece of yellow scrap paper and attach it to the back of the cabin to show through the windows.
- Apply yellow Stickles to the windows and set aside to dry.
The Trees and Cabin
- Cut seven trees from the Tree in Oval using green cardstock. Note: I cut pieces of cardstock to fit over the tree only so I don’t waste paper cutting the frame.
- Cut 2 sections of the Pine Tree Forest.
- Stamp the Splatter Background on all the trees and emboss wit white embossing powder.
- Tuck the trees in between the snow layers and attach to the card base and snow layers using multiple layers of mounting tape.
- Attach the trees to the box flaps using mounting tape.
- Tuck the cabin in behind the front snow layer and attach using double stick tape. Note: I created a brace using scrap cardstock and attached it to the back of the cabin to make it more secure.
The Deer, Greenery and Birds
- Cut the deer using white cardstock.
- Apply Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink using mini applicators. Check out my Coloring Die Cut Animals tutorial to see how I colored the deer.
- Attach the deer to the box flaps using pieces of mounting tape on the body and glossy accents on the feet.
- Cut greenery using green cardstock and punch red berries using a 1/8″ punch.
- Attach the berries to the greenery using glossy accents.
- Tuck the berry branches in behind the snow layers and attach using glossy accents.
- Finish the box by attaching birds to the scene using small pieces of mounting tape.
