Today I wanted to share this box pop up card I made. One Christmas, my oldest niece was getting into sewing and had asked me for fabric for Christmas. I asked her what kind she wanted and she replied with anything with bright colours and sparkly. My cousin later asked me to buy her a My Little Pony Toy. With that thought, I take inspiration for this card.

This is what I came up with:

Unfortunately, the Pony Party stamp set from Simon Says Stamp that I used isn’t available anymore, but The Greeting Farm has several pony stamps, one in particular, that is quite similar, can be found here.

If you’re unfamiliar with how to make a box card base, please refer to my post here of watch my Youtube video below.

For the decorative panels on my box card, I stamped the Drawn Heart Background and heat embossed it with a gold tinsel embossing powder by Recollections. The embossing powder isn’t listed in my supply list below but is something that you can find at Micheals. The rainbow confetti paper is from MFT’s Sweet Celebration 6×6 Paper Pack.

After assembling my box card, I stamped and cut out my pony images and the party banner from the Baby Party Animals Stamp Set. The banner was cut using it’s coordinating die. All the images were coloured with Copic markers and assembled onto the box card using a combination of Zig Two Way Glue Pen , Ranger Multi Medium Matte, and Scotch tape. I stamped, cut and coloured an extra cake and cake stand to add to the back of the card as  a little decorative element.

Next, I cut out the second smallest circle from MFT’s Stitched Mini Scallop Circle Stax out of white cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment, “Have a happy birthday”, from Simon Says Stamp’s Cute Chicks Stamps Set in a blue tinsel embossing powder by Recollections.

Lastly, to finish up my card, I took my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Clear Overlay Pen and I brushed the banners and cake frosting with a bit of shimmer.

You can see it in action here:

That finishes up by card for today. That’s day one for the color challenge. I’ll be back tomorrow for more!
