pop up box

I have been admiring pop up boxes shown on other people's blogs and Facebook for some time now so thought I would have a go and make one.
 
 
As I had been asked to do a card for a garden fan and I had these sweet little stamps from Little Claire I thought this was the perfect opportunity
 
 
I followed instructions for constructing the box on the project section of Joanna Sheen's website
I used some patterned card from my stash and some paper from Lili of the valley's Promises 8x8 paper pad. Once made I then stamped and coloured the bits to pop out using my spectrum Noir pens. The stamps were a club set last year but some parts are still available as dinkies. I then cut some foliage using various dies and added a die cut fence. I stamped a happy birthday sentiment onto another die-cut and glued this on front of the box. There is a matching blank one on the back for a greeting to be added.
