Sorry Marianne!

A little while ago, my bloggy pal Marianne made a comment that made me smile - she said she wasn't very keen on pop-up boxes as they don't seem like real cards to her.  Little did she know that I had just made my first two of these cheeky little rascals!

I didn't have a template for this, I just winged it after reading the construction instructions in a recent magazine
I've used a ton of old Papermania Colossal Christmas papers
Stamp is CC Designs Snow Flake
Sentiment is Hero Arts
Various lengths and angles of acetate strips
A few punched snowflakes which I glued and Glamour Dust-ed

Sorry Marianne, but I had great fun making it!

Sweet Stampin - Let It Snow

Hugs to all for a super weekend.

I think it's fab. They're really different. Love the acetate which makes the snowflakes look like they're floating.


Hi Squirrel, this such a lovely box card - I looove the snowman. Just perfect for our challenge this week. Thank you for sharing and joining in with the fun at Sweet Stampin’ this week and good luck. Hugs Janine xx

Hehe, did make me laugh when I saw your post title. Funny how we notice things our blog buddies don't like, take influence from them, are inspired by them. I think your box card is awesome and I really like them! Great job. Thanks so much for joining in the fun at Sweet Stampin' this week for our 'Let it Snow' challenge. Good luck! Hugs, Wends x Sweet Stampin' DT

The box cards are fun, but I have to sort of agree with your friend that they aren't really cards. They are more fun than cards! (to receive anyway). I love what you've done here with the snowflakes on the clear. How fun!
