Pop-up box card for hubby

Hello everybody! Can you belive we are already in the second half of January? Goodness, time flies so fast, doesn't it? So, how has 2021 been for you this far? Good, I hope.

At the beginning of the year I was asked to be a guest designer at the Scrapping4fun challenges

I gladly accepted and am joining the team with the new AG challenge that started today. The sponsor for this challenge is DiesRUs.

Let me show you what I made...

It's a pop-up box card that I made for my daughter to give to her daddy/my husband! It's my very first pup-up box card, if I may add... I've been wanting to make one of those for a while, but most of the time I ran out of time or felt too lazy to plan this whole design. *ooops* I know there are some dies out there that make a base for the pop-up card in a couple of seconds, but I don't have any of those so I looked for some tutorials online and then made the template for the base myself. This plus creating the "things" I wanted to have in my box resulted in this pop-up box taking quite some time to complete. I really wanted to include (at least) some of the things that my hubby likes to do, so I created a small book (because he loves reading), a camera (because he likes photography) and a computer (because ... well, you know, he's a guy and he likes to spend time behind his computer :P). I have plenty of dies and stamps, but none that I could use here (go figure!), so I designed everything myself. I did hoewever use 2 sentiment stamps once the box inserts were done. Both of the sentiments and the heart image are from The Greeting Farm. On one side of the book I stamped "Best dad ever" and on the other side I stamped some hearts. "Best dad ever" actually says "best day ever", but I changed that "y" into a "d". This sentiment comes from the "Best day Anya" set. On the computer screen I stamped "You are amazing" and that sentiment is from the "Mega-mini amazing" set. Hearts are also a TGF stamp - they are from the Girl build a onesie stamp set. I finished the pop-up box with some star inserts (stars were actually die cut).

Do you have a favourite colour combo when it comes to making cards or other crafty projects? I have quite a few to be honest, but when it comes to making things for guys I very often turn to black and gold colour combination. It's so classy, don't you think so?

That's it for me today. Have a wonderful day! xx

I would like to enter my creation to the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday: Anything goes + a sentiment
Cardz TV: Anything goes
Craft-alnica: Karkoli
The house that stamps built: Anything goes - J2021
Paperbabe stamps: Picture inspiration
As you like it: Favourite colour duo (when I'm making projects for men my favourite colour combination is gold and black, because I think it looks very classy and still masculine at the same time)
