Today I am happy to share my first project for the Not 2 Shabby Instagram Digital Stamp Creative Team.
I am so excited to be part of such a talented group of crafters!
As well as create projects using Jamie's adorable digi stamps.
If you've been following me for a little bit, you've probably already seen some of her images across my Instagram during the Daily Marker 30 day.
These new images were so fun to use!
For this card, I used the newly released Farmers Market digi stamp set to create this interactive pop up box card.
I started by creating a cut file for my Cricut that would make up the box and inserts. I wanted the card to still be able to fit into a standard A2 envelope, so I sized the main panel to 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" plus a little tab measuring about 1/2".
The box inserts measured about 3 5/8" x 1", which also included the tabs that fold in.
I cut out two of the green panels shown below and added 1/8" double sided tape to the tabs on all the cut pieces.
Then I attached everything on one side, leaving the release paper in tact on the other side.
I then measured and adjusted the stamps before I printed them, so that they would fit onto the box card panels. This made the main booth image about 3 1/4" x 4 1/4".
I used Copic markers to color in all the images and fussy cut them out. I used an X-acto knife inside the window and was very careful around the flags. I still managed to tear the banner, but I was able to glue it back into place once I attached it to the box panel.
I cut out the the rest of the images from inside the window area and added them onto an insert. I did the same for the corn, apples, and sunflowers and placed more of the images onto the second insert.
Once I had all the images in place, I removed the release paper from the tabs on the opposite side and closed the final side of the box, so that everything was attached.
This digi set includes a lot of cute sentiments, which I was going to add to a banner and glue to the front, but once I finished, I thought a white embossed sentiment would look nice.
I used a sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Thanks a Bushel and some white detail embossing powder to add across the front of the card.
I think this is the perfect summer card. It's so fun and colorful and gets me excited for warmer weather. 🌞🌻
Thanks so much for stopping by!
