JAS Challenge and Unity Friends With Flair

Hello Fellow Crafters and Scrappers,

Welcome to another weekly challenge at Just A Scrappin'. This week we are having fun making pop-up cards. Okay, I was a little nervous when I thought about having to make a pop-up card. However, after watching a few videos on Youtube I was ready to give this challenge a try. I cased this idea from Brandy at brandyscards.com, with a modification. A video on how to make the tissue box is located on Brandy's blog. Go to the videos' tab, then scroll though to you find a video entitled field flowers/pop-up tissue box card tutorial.

I love the idea of creating a Get Well card with a little tissue box. I cut a strip of paper 3"x5", as instructed, and then scored (along the 5" side) at 1", 2 1/2", and 3 1/2". However, I do not own an oval punch in my crafting toolbox, which is what Brandy used to create the oval in her tissue box. The oval is cut from the second panel (if looking at the piece of paper lying on the 5" side from left to right). Instead, I improvised and utilized the center-point feature on my Cricut machine along with the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. This also solved the problem of a not leaving a hole on the backside of the tissue box. To complete my card, I used my new stamps from Unity Stamps Co. along with ribbon and various inks from the Tim Holtz distressed ink pad collection.

Don't forget to stop by the Just A Scrappin' blog to check out the other DT members and their wonderful cards.

Enjoy,

K

    1. Hello Kathy! Thank you for your kind words. I added the dimensions in my blog post, as well as posting the specific location to the video on Brandy's blog. I hope this information helps. I attached the folded strip with my ATG gun on the 1st and 4th panels and then put these panels flush against the two sides on my card. Have a great day!
