Cheers!

Do you know people who have birthday months?

Meaning, they celebrate their birthday every day for the entire month of their birthday?

I do, and it cracks me up.

For these people, you really need to bring your A-game for your card.

I skipped last month's Hero Kit because my life was crazy, but THIS MONTH, let's talk about A-game, shall we?

The second I saw this puppy I knew what needed to happen. I needed to put every stamp in it on the lid of my MISTI and make a pop-up box card! I stamped them all at once and colored them with the Copics listed below, and then die cut them all at once - saves a ton of time  to stamp everything together and then die cut it together. Just be sure the images are far enough apart on your MISTI to leave room for the dies. Then I made a modified version of the pop-up box - because I wanted to use the STUNNING shimmery blue paper in the kit - measurements below. That just goes to show you you can make these little guys any size you want. My photo does NOT do the shimmery cardstock justice. It's a beautiful, shimmery navy blue.

So if you want to wow one of those birthday month people, I highly recommend you do this.

How could you NOT feel appreciated pulling this out of an envelope and having all the goodies wiggling in the air? You cannot. I am certain of that.

I had SO much fun making this card! I actually spent an hour filming the entire thing, and then I got a message saying my phone storage was nearly full so it didn't save the video and I almost cried. But thankfully - there's a full tutorial on this cute card at Splitcoast. I modified the measurements to fit the BEAUTIFUL shimmery navy cardstock in the kit, which is 5.5 x 8.5 - thanks to some help from Dina, who can math :). So on these pretty shimmery sheets, the vertical score lines are at 2, 4, 6, 8 - and the horizontal score line is at 2" - the rest of the instructions are as they are in the tutorial, here.

Every time I make one of these, I wonder why I don't make them more. It's one of the few 3D projects I'm just crazy about.

I'm hopping along with some amazing people today - so be sure and visit them to see what they've done with it - I've seen some peeks on Instagram - wow!

This month's kit has $65 worth of goodies in it:

  • A 4"x6" clear stamp set
  • A set of 8 coordinating Frame Cuts dies that match the stamp set
  • Two Fancy word dies - "cheers" and "party"
  • A set of Paper Layering dies for adding a sunburst or sparkler effect
  • Gold glitter embossing powder
  • Custom washi tape designed for the kit
  • A gold Uni-ball Gel Pen
  • 4 half sheets of gold foil cardstock
  • 2 half sheets of each metallic cardstock: purple, pink, dark blue and antique gold


There are also some fun add ons - stencils and other goodies - you can see the full kit here.

Now get crackin' on the hop and maybe YOU will win the kit they're giving away. Or, if you're like me and suffer from FOMO, you can just buy it.

I hope you had an awesome weekend - I am still in shock that it's December and as usual, I'm completely unprepared, but also still have plenty of time to procrastinate :).

Loveyameanitbye.

  68. I definitely know people who like to stretch their birthdays out into infinity and beyond. Then there are the poor December birthday people (like me). We have three birthdays within a week of Christmas in our household (and another three in the extended family). We're lucky if we can get one day to celebrate all the December Birthdays all at once.

    I'd still appreciate a pop-up box card, though. It might make me feel better that I have to share my special day with 6 other people, if I had such a fabulous card to open. :)
