Pop up box card for a Las Vegas wedding …

Hi and welcome to my blog.

It’s been a very exciting time for my daughter and her husband recently – they’ve been to their friends’ wedding in Las Vegas! I was asked to make something special for the happy couple so I chose a pop up box card …

Pop up box cards certainly have the wow factor, like the one I made a few years back for my husband for our silver wedding anniversary, so I knew this was the type of card I would make – all I had to do was decide on the design. From what I’ve been told, both the bride and groom loved it.

The good thing is that this dimensional card folds flat to fit inside a normal sized envelope, but once opened, it pops up to reveal the surprise.  The panel at the back gave ample space for a greeting to be added.

I loved making this one – it was great fun to do. Hope you like it.

I loved the shaker element of the card – all those sparkly sequins…

Glittery stars were attached to the outside of the acetate too …
