Project Tuesday: Spiral Pop-up Card

It's time for another fun Project Tuesday challenge - and this week we're challenging you to make a Spiral Pop-up Card. These are so fun!

I went with a cute tea cup theme for my simple gift set - I thought some yummy herbal teabags would be perfect in the pillow box.

This is a colour combo I've had noted in my sketch book since first seeing Melon Mambo, it's so bright and fresh. For the front of my card I've created a window using circle punches and added some dimension by popping up the white layer. I stamped the sentiment five times, using the stamp-a-ma-jig for placement (this is a must-have tool, I don't stamp without it!)

When you open the card....you're hit by flying teacups. Ok, not really - but it's a cute effect and so simple to do!

I love, love, love the Big Shot Pillow Box die. It's just too cute. Speaking of cute, how adorable is that tiny tag? I'll be putting little tags on everything from now on!
