May 2010 Card Group Projects

Today was our May card group meeting and the projects were two pop up cards and a gift box. We used the Sizzix Bigz Pop Ups die which makes pop up cards so easy to make.

The first card is a pop up cupcake card made with a 4" x 4" textured white card blank. Here's the front:

And here's the inside:

The second card has a pop up gift inside. We used the SU! Circle Circus stamp set and got busy with circle punches! Here's the front:

And here's the inside:

The gift box was demonstrated to us last week by Joanne at the SU! workshop. I thought I'd let my card group ladies actually make one themselves while the instructions were still fresh in my mind. The box is made with an A4 piece of CS which is scored at 7, 14, 21 and 28 cms, turned 90 degrees and scored at 7 cms. After the box was assembled, we used stamps from the SU! Petal Pizzazz and Circle Circus sets to decorate the front. We stamped one flower full strength and two paler coloured flowers by stamping off once first. The leaves were stamped off once first also.

As always, it was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon. The ladies got their SU! goodies from last week's workshop so they were very happy about that!

Waving hello to Wendy and Margaret - wishing you happy browsing!
