Pop Up Box Card By the Tide and Seashore

This is a Pop-up Box Card that I made earlier this month, but just now posted.  The stamp sets I used are, By the Tide and By the Seashore.  The cardstock is Coastal Cabana with Maritime DSP.  I also used Crystal Effects on the shells and Pearl Basic Jewels.  I will write up the measurements later.
These are so much fun to make and very addictive!

Stamp Sets:  By the Tide, By the Seashore

Cardstock:  Coastal Cabana, Whisper White, and Maritime DSP

Ink:  Real Red, Night of Navy, Pool Party

Other:  Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Paper Snips, Crystal Effects, Rhinestones and Pearls, Dimensionals, Window Sheets, Glue Dots


1.     Coastal Cabana cardstock is cut at 8½” x 5½” and scored landscape at 2”, 4”,6”, 8” which leaves ½” on one side on the Simply Scored Scoring Tool.  This makes the perfect size to fit inside an A2 envelope to mail.

2.    Turn the cardstock portrait on the Simply Scored Scoring Tool, and scored at 2½” except for the panel next to the ½” which will be the back of the Pop-Up Box card.

3.    Use the Bone Folder to crease all of the scored lines. Use Paper Snips to cut up to the horizontal line.

4.    Trim off part of the ½” narrow section at the 2½” mark.

5.    Use Snail Adhesive or Sticky Strip on the other ½” narrow section to attach to the other side to form the box card.

6.    Cut out two small Coastal Cabana slats to go inside the box card.  They are cut at 3¼” x 1” and scored at 5/8” on each end.  Fold and crease scored ends. Attach inside with Sticky Strip.

7.    I cut the Maritime DSP to fit each side.

8.    I stamped with Real Red and Night of Navy ink on Whisper White cardstock and attached the fish, lobster and seahorse inside the box card on the slats with a window sheet and glue dots.

9.    I stamped the starfish and shells with Night of Navy and
Coastal Cabana ink, cut them out and applied Crystal Effects.  When dry, I attached a pearl to the sand dollar.

10.  Then attach each one to the sides with Dimensionals.
