Stampin' Pretty Pals Blog Hop Badge

Hi, Stamper. Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, I’m sharing my Birthday Card in a Box. The theme of our hop is “It’s All About the Kids.” We hope that you will be inspired by the creations the Pals are sharing with you! Then, you will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin' Up! Bee Mine Birthday Card in a Box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I chose to make a Birthday Card in a Box for a child’s birthday. Children just love a good interactive card with a pop-up!

I started my Birthday Card in a Box with the Bee My Valentine DSP and then matched it with Daffodil Delight and Sweet Sorbet cardstock. I stamped a few bees but they were too large, so I cut them out of the Designer Series Paper instead. Much better!

In order to make the Birthday Card in a Box actually be “birthday”, I used the cupcake from the Circle Saying stamp set. The cupcakes are then colored with the Daffodil Delight & Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends.

I used the sentiments from the Circle Sayings stamp set for the sentiments on my Birthday Card in a Box. They are stamped in Daffodil Delight ink. The little hearts stamped in Sweet Sorbet and the honeycomb stamped in Daffodil Delight are from the Bee Mine stamp set.

I kept the back of my Birthday Card in a Box fairly simple, giving plenty of room to write a message.

Stampin' Up! Bees & Bugs truffles with wings to go with my Bee Mine Birthday Card in a Box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Do you know what else kids like? Candy! Athough, these Bees & Bugs Lindt truffles may be too yummy to pass onto the children. *wink wink* I added wings to them using the Ladybug Builder Punch and Vellum cardstock.
