How do you make the most adorable Easter pop-up box card you’ve ever seen? You do it by combining three of my favorite things….
Stampin’ Up! DSP + Silhouette Cameo e-Cutter + Lori Whitlock Designs
This project was designed for the March “Silhouette Challenge”. Forty-three more fabulous Silhouette projects can be found at the end of this post. You can purchase this card in my Etsy shop.
I used the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up! to make this darling Easter pop-up box card. I absolutely LOVE this paper, it’s just beautiful and perfect for Easter, Mother’s Day, baby showers and more! You can get this fabulous DSP FREE during Sale-a-Bration with your $50 order from Stampin’ Up! (Hurry, SAB ends March 31, 2014.) The box base is made with Pool Party card stock. (Item #122924)
I used Lori Whitlock’s Easter box card SVG file and my Silhouette Cameo e-cutter to cut and score all the pieces. So even though it looks complicated, it’s really simple to make! (Shhhhh!!! Don’t tell the people I’m sending it to, I want them to say, “WOW!!! I can’t believe you MADE this!!!” I don’t want them to know it’s easy!!! Haha!!!)
I modified the design slightly, first by adding a second strip of “grass” to the back panel, then adding a layer of the striped paper below the basket. Now that I’m looking at the photo, I think I’ll go back and add “grass” on both sides of the basket too, and maybe a few more eggs. I also added a long Whisper White strip on the back of the card to give me a place to stamp a greeting and to sign the card. If you don’t own an e-cutter, I believe that most of the designs from Lori Whitlock include the PDF file for hand cutting.
I don’t know about you, but the combination of Stampin’ Up! DSP + Silhouette Cameo e-Cutter + Lori Whitlock Designs really inspires my creativity!
And now, I promised you more fabulous Silhouette projects!!!
