I had a request to make a birthday card from a friend for a friend’s daughter’s birthday! Today I have a Mama Elephant box pop up card that I wanted to share featuring Mama Elephant’s Party Animals Stamp set.
If you’re unfamiliar with box cards, you can check out my box card base tutorial below:

There was 4 slats in my box to start and I used patterned paper from Recollections Rainbow Everything Paper Pad for my decorative panels.
I stamped and cut out images from Mama Elephant’s Party Animals, Birthday Monkeys, Little Chicken Agenda, and Merry Mantle with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. I used the following Copic Markers to colour my images: Y08, Y06, Y11, YR02, R29, R27, R17, R20, C1, YG17, YG11, B05, B02, B00, BG75, BG72, BG10, BV04, and BV02.
I die cut grass borders using Mama Elephant’s Grassy Trio and a cloud border from Mama Elephant’s Landscape Trio.
I adhered my borders onto card stock tabs and onto the slats. I adhered my images directly onto the borders with my Zig Two Way Glue Pen or onto strips of acetate and onto the slat.
I brushed Clear Wink of Stella onto the star banner and all the party hats.
I die cut letters from MFT’s LLD Stitched Alphabet to spell out the little girl’s name- Mila, and I adhered them to the front flap. The gold card stock I used was from Recollections Signature Metallic paper pad.
For the sentiment, I stamped, “Yay! Yay! Yay! It’s your birthday!” from MFT’s Birthday Chicks Stamp set and was heat embossed with WOW Opaque Bright White embossing powder.
