Abstract Impressions Popped Up!

Hello and Happy Thursday! I hope you're all having an amazing week! I got to play some more in the craft room this week in between working on swaps and planning and prepping for my team meeting coming up this weekend. Speaking of team meeting, don't forget that this month joining the Stamping family is over the top awesome! The starter kit is ALWAYS the best deal in the catalog with choosing $125 in product of your choice for just $99 and free shipping, but for the month of July only, you can add an entire family collection of ink pads to your order! Do you feel like Regals? Or how about Subtles?
Maybe you're a neutral sort? Oh, well maybe you prefer to get your hands on the 10 current In-Colors? The choice is yours, but the bottom line is, you get 10 FREE ink pads! Hello, no brainer if you ask me!

Anyhoo, today's project was a fun one and I was able to get a video uploaded to go with it. Let me know what you think in the comments below. I would love to read them. So, this card is intended to make the recipient feel tons better when they open it. It's a simple card packed full of the fun factor with this tiny pop up tissue box. Yes, you read that right. It has a little pop up tissue box that literally pops up when you open the card and offers the recipient a Kleenex! Now who wouldn't smile when they receive that? Cold or no cold, that's gonna make you happy! I promise!
Ok, to recreate this card, you will need a standard card base of 8.5" x 5.5" scored and folded at 4.5"in Petal Pink cardstock. Randomly stamp the "rose" image from the Abstract Impressions stamp set in Petal Pink ink for a tone on tone look. Next, cut a piece of Poppy Parade cardstock, 5" x 3" and using a scoring tool such as the Simply Scored Scoring Tool, score the 5" side at 1", 2.5" and 3.5". Using the smallest oval in the Layering Ovals collection, cut out an opening in the 1st "wide" section that will be your tissue box top. Then, using the same "rose" image from the stamp set, randomly stamp it in Poppy Parade. Fold on all of the score lines and add Tear n Tape, one strip to the small side that will adhere to the top, and two strips  the wider section that will be the box bottom. Fold the tissue box in half, line the cut edge to the card base fold and adhere to the card, bottom of the box to the card base back and the box side to the card base front (See video for clearer instructions) - this makes the tissue box "pop up" when opening the card. Now, stamp the sentiment on the inside of the card (tip - use the tissue box as a guide to align your block and sentiment).
Next, stamp the sentiment from Dandelion Wishes onto a scrap of Whisper White and punch it out using the 2" circle punch and layer it with a piece of Poppy Parade punched out with the Starburst punch. Finally wrap a piece of the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle ribbon around the card front and tie in a knot. Layer the sentiment piece over the ribbon toward the right side with a couple of Dimensionals.

To decorate a coordinating envelope to complete this project, mask off the front of the envelope with a couple of sticky notes. Randomly stamp the envelope flap with the rose image and Petal Pink ink.

And that my friends completes today's card. I hope you enjoyed this one. I know I did. Have an awesome day!
Happy Stamping,
