Best Nurse Ever Tissue Box Pop-Up

I’ve been waiting for my husband to deliver these cards to his nursing staff.  But since they’re still sitting on the dining room table unsigned (slacker…), I’m not waiting any longer to share them!  His class graduated from their residency program almost two weeks ago.  He’s not officially done yet but I made these cards for his nurses so the other residents on his team could say goodbye and thank the nurses for all they do.

Tissue Pop Up

For card is 4.25″ x 5.5″ card, you’ll need:

  • a card base measuring 4.25″ x 11″, scored down the middle at 5.5″
  • a card front measuring 4″ x 5.25″
  • a pop-up insert measuring 4″ x 10.5″, scored down the middle at 5.25″, then cut 1 inch on the fold 1″ from each side of the ends for the pop up

I kept the front of the card simple with the sunflowers so I could decorate and place more attention to the pop-up portion of the card.

I hand-wrote the word “nurse” since I don’t have a stamp for it.  To give the tissue box some color, I masked it off prior to gluing it to the card base and colored it using a copic marker, then stamped the bandage on it for a tone-on-tone look.  If you have a small oval die – you can use it to cut out the tissue box hole.  I didn’t have one, but I found a letter O from an alphabet die set that worked for me.

The tissue coming out of it is actually a quarter of a toilet paper square :).

Tissue Pop Up 3

You can make your tissue box in any size you’d like – just cut the slits longer, but make sure it’s still proportionate to your card/tissue box dimensions.  I meant to make this card a landscape card but cut the bases long by mistake.  It still worked out!  I hope you enjoyed this!  Until next time, have a great day!

XOXO,

Frosty Fairy Friends

I can’t believe Christmas will be here in a few short weeks! It’s so wild! I’ve finished my holiday cards and plan to post about them next week – so stay tuned!  I’ll be a part of an exciting blog hop and I hope you’ll return to see it.  I even have a video made that I just need to do a voice-over on.

This card was done for two reasons – the LiveLoveCards challenge for the month is Christmas cards and Kathy Racoosin is doing another 30 day coloring challenge.  I stamped a bunch of the images from Lawn Fawn’s Frosty Fairy Friends set and started coloring with Copics.  It’s been a while!  I also knew that I wanted to do a pop up card.  Lawn Fawn has an amazing die that will do this for you – creating two hills that are held together by tabs.  I can’t justify spending 30 dollars on a die knowing I could create something similar with what I have so I decided I should try it!

I used Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Hillside Borders dies and cut two slopes out, scored them at the bottom at 1/4″ – enough for some glue to glue this piece to the bottom of the card base and then added some distress ink to highlight the slopes.  After deciding how far I wanted each hill to come out from the center of the card base, I measured and marked where I wanted them to be and made tabs going from each hillside to the back of the cardbase (with tabs to glue to each piece – it will look like a piece with two score marks).  Sorry – this is easier to see than explain.  You can see one of my tabs on the left side of the card in the photo above.

I used my Marvy Snow Marker to add dimension on the images to create a snow effect. The snowflakes and fairy wings have Wink of Stella Clear shimmer on them but you can’t see them on the photos here.

The outside of the card is plain, but I created a belly-band with a snowflake tag to spruce it up.

I hope you all enjoyed this! See you next Wednesday for my holiday card reveal!

XOXO,
