I made this card for my SIL's 50th Birthday and was really surprised at how quickly the whole thing pulled together. I followed Nikky Hall's video tutorial for the no measure pop up box card which can be found here. The image is from the pack and I've layered it up with Pinflair Glue before selecting my papers and potential embellishments.
I cut the papers to size and attached them to the box and then decided that I wasn't completely happy and that something was missing. So I grabbed the Gorjuss Girls stamp set and used the silhouette branch to stamp and then heat emboss directly onto the papers. I then inked the edges of the box and added some silver embossing powder.
Once I was happy with the arrangement I decided to decorate the box flaps with some ribbon and more elements from the decoupage kit and stamped a Birthday greeting on the front of the card. To finish I added lots of sparkle with Stickles and a Shake It Glitter Pen.
So what do you think? Decoupage kits rock? Well I think this one certainly does! You can expect to see a few more Gorjuss makes from me in the future using this kit, so keep your eyes peeled!
