Unicorn Celebration Pop-up Box Cards

Hello! It is a new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs Blog. Our theme for this challenge is on Celebrations. I am using a digital set image from one of our awesome sponsors for this challenge, Diddybag. The first time I saw these unicorn images, I knew I was going to have fun playing with it. Aren't they adorable? This set only comes in color but I am fortunate that the owner of Diddybag, Nell, and my co-DT, Nikki, helped me in transforming the images into transparent ones so I can color it.

I printed the images on white Neenah cardstock and colored it with Prisma color pencils, adding accents here and there. I fuzzy cut the unicorns leaving a small white border around each image.

This is not the first time I made a box card. I created a box card before using a Cricut digital cut and stamped images. Here is the link, in case you are interested, WPlus9 Pretty Peonies Card In A Box. But this box card is slim and tall. I want it short and wide. Good thing, I watched this video by Laura Bassen on how to create your own pop-up box card. There are also cutting dies out in the market that makes the steps to creating a box card very simple.

I created three different cards so I can make use of the unicorn images. The set has 10 and unfortunately, I only used 9. But I will use the last unicorn to decorate the envelope as I send one of the box cards to a friend who just had a baby.

For all three box cards, I am using the Taylored Expression Rolling Clouds die and Paper Smooches Rainbow Wise die.

For this baby card, I used a light blue cardstock. I die cut the flaps using Mama Elephant Borderline Trios Creative Cuts. I sponged the edges with SSS Sea Glass dye ink. The sentiment is from Mama Elephant Just Hatched stamp set. It was heat embossed using Hero Arts white embossing powder. I lined the clouds with Ranger Glossy Accent, then poured Tim Holtz Distress Glitter Clear Rock Candy over this. I set this aside to dry.

For this box card, I used a light pink cardstock. I die cut the flaps using Concord & 9th Bags & Tags die. I sponged the edges with Tim Holtz Tattered Rose Distress Ink . The sentiment is from Ellen Hutson Spread the Sparkle stamp set. The bolder sentiment was heat embossed using Simon Says Stamp Rose Gold embossing powder. I applied Stickles Star Dust on the edge of the clouds.

For this box card, I used a cream cardstock. I trimmed a plaid patterned paper from Authentique slightly smaller than the flaps. I ran the Lawn Fawn Stitched Border dies on the edges. The sentiment is from the same stamp set I used in the previous box card. I added some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Confetti Mix to the rainbow. For the clouds, it might be hard to see on the photos but I heat embossed the edges with the use of a Versamark pen and Ranger Holographic embossing powder. 

It was such a joy creating these boxes. I hope you create something to show what you are celebrating right now. Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you come again.
