Are you ready for some sample photos?! Check out all of the pop up Christmas box inspiration below! In case you were wondering, most of the stamped images within the boxes were either heat embossed and paper pieced, or colored with my copic markers!
A7 Pop Up Box
The A7 Pop Up Box comes with four different ways to decorate your card base, including this beautiful tile design. The matte panels were cut from silver card stock and layered behind the white tile panels. The square and rectangle mattes are included in the die set too! I love how you can customize the boxes to match whatever is inside the box. In this example the tile really compliments the white silver embossed poinsettias! The beautiful lace pieces peaking throughout the box are from the new Lacy Borders slimline die set. All of the stamped images inside the box come from the new Candle Light Poinsettia 6x6 stampset!
Here is the same box in a more traditional Christmas color scheme!
Here is an example showcasing the lace design that's included in the A7 pop up box die set. The matte panels were cut from blue card stock and layered behind the white die cut lace panels. Both the tile and lace options allow you to create gorgeous elegant pop up boxes without the use of pattern paper! The poinsettias were white heat embossed on vellum and blue card stock. The candles were silver heat embossed on white cardstock!
Here's an example where the decorative square and rectangle panels are cut from pattern paper. The centers of the poinsettias in this card were accented with gold prills. The cardinals and the mailbox come from the new Cardinal Blessings 6x6 stamp set. This card also features the new A7 gift card holder on the back. The gift card holder is sized perfectly to fit a gift card and a tall notecard! Did you know that you can make these boxes pop perfectly into place using the new A7 mechanism die? It's a really fun surprise when your recipient takes your card out of the envelope! Check out my Youtube video to see how it works!
Here is the final way you can decorate the A7 pop up box. For these cards, I just used the plain square and rectangle panels from the die set and cut them from pattern paper! Interactive cards are quite time consuming so it's always nice to make some steps of the process quick, easy and simple! You might have noticed that the boxes have stamped images floating above the top of the card base. That is completely fine, it'll still fit inside an A7 envelope. The dimensions of the box are 5x5x5" when the card is folded flat. That gives you about an extra inch to "float" your images above your box!
Slimline Pop Up Card
Slimline cards are all the rage right now, so I knew I had to come out with a slimline pop up box! The dimensions of this box are 9x4" when the card is folded flat. When the box is popped up it's 7x4" giving you plenty of real estate to add all your stamped images! I combined images from the Cardinal Blessings and Candlelight Poinsettia stamp sets to create this beautiful poinsettia garden scene.
Alright, lets take a break from cardinals and poinsettias and share a couple snowy winter scenes! This little scene was created using the new German Winter Village 6x6 stamp set and the new Christmas Market 6x6 stamp set. The snowbank and the fence in the back of the card were cut from the new Everyday Borders slimline die set
If you want to add a notecard or gift card to the back of these boxes you can add one inside the new slimline gift card holder!
Slimline Shadow Box
The Slimline Shadow Box is a lot of fun because you have even more room to add your stamped and die cut images! I love the sense of depth and dimension you get with this die. Included in the set is 3 different windows you can cut to achieve different looks for your slimline shadow boxes! The scene inside the box was entirely made using the German Winter Village stamp set
Here's a beautiful icy poinsettia sample. For the window on this shadow box, I used the two rectangles together to create a pretty silver frame around the box. The silver foil scallop lace border is from the new Lacy Borders slimline die set.
This shadow box window design is joking called the "tissue box". Lets be honest, it kind of resembles a tissue box! Jokes aside, the flourished shape window is still super pretty! Because the dimensions are the same on the slimline pop up box and the slimline shadow box, this too can fit the slimline gift card holder add on die!
