You Always Make Me Smile!

Hi there! I’ve got a fun pop-up box card to share today using the new A Whale of a Time stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs! When I first saw this set, I immediately thought how perfect it is for a dimensional card like this.


I made my own box card by scoring and cutting 2 pieces of cardstock and adhering them together in the same way that the various box card dies out there are designed.  I have the Lawn Fawn pop-up box card die which is sized at A2, but I wanted a larger one to fit the large whale in this stamp set better so I made one that folds flat to a 5×7 card size.

It’s really hard to see in this photo, but the fish and whales are floating along with the help of thin acetate strips that I’ve adhered to the die-cut waves above them. The starfish and water spout are also suspended with acetate.

I’ve Copic colored a few Lawn Fawn palm tree die-cuts and I’ve also used a few stamps from some of the other summer releases from Gerda Steiner Designs. The little fish are from the Deeply set, the coral is from the Big Bite stamp set and the seaweed way in the background is from the Oh Manatee set.

I’ve decorated the sides and back of the box with paper from my stash and left plenty of space on the back of the card to write a message to the recipient.

It’s been so long since I’ve made a box card like this that I forgot how fun they are to make!

Hope you have a great week and thanks for stopping by!
