Good morning, dear Maja friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
I’m sure you’re well aware of the day we’re going to celebrate on Thursday. But whether you celebrate St. Valentine’s Day or you consider it purely commercial crap, love is something always worth celebrating! And appreciating someone whom you love and who loves you is always precious 🙂 Giving something you made yourself is the best way to show your feelings, whcih can’t go unnoticed. And here’s a pop-up box card I made for this occasion using the Christmas Season collection.
This orignal card form is flat when closed:
As this is the outer side, I decorated it subtly with alternating paper patterns and a small rose bouquet with a charm heart:
When open, the flat card becomes a box that stands on its own, and the upper flaps fold down to reveal the inside:
The secret lies in strips of paper attached inside the box body, which support a selection of elements: quite a few hearts, a die-cut “I love you” sign:
…and a cherub as well as mini postcards I cut out of one of the mini pad sheets and a post stamp image:
I extended the heart pattern with mini hearts on the front flap:
The side flaps feature rose images that correspond with the roses on the outside:
The message of the box is quite clear, but if you wanted to add something, there’s a tag in a pocket on the back, non-folding wall:
I really like the way it turned out, sweet and lovely 🙂
And here’s what I used:

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting – and don’t forget to spread some love every day!
