Princess Pop Up Box

Hello Everybody!

A very special little friend of our is having a birthday so I know I needed to make her a special card.  And a pop-up card is super special!  

I used my Silhouette machine to cut the card base out using the grilling card file by Lori Whitlock. (I love her stuff!!)  From there I made it into a princess card rather than the grilling card-which was challenging.  I'm a boy mama-LOL so princess stuff is scarce in these parts.  ;) 

And here is the card open up-magical!  

Here is the first panel.

Here is on the right side.  I had these pink flowers cut out (from a cuttlebug flower die cut) and on my desk.  I used gems from G studio that I got at Christmas for the centers.

Here is the left side.  This paper, the paper on the bottom, and the cardstock are all from Close to My Heart-Daydream.  (It's a bit old but I was so glad to have it.) :)

 Here is a close up of the middle.  The Silhouette cut the swirls on the farthest panel back and the crown.  The metal castle is a light weight metal brad (that's why the whole at the top).  I have also had this for a loooong time and either bought it at the Scrapbook Expo or the Internet.   The present is a stamp that I colored and fussy cut and the white flowers are Martha Stewart.

And then I tied it all up with a bow.  :)

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Creative Knockouts--#132 Use a die cut or punch--the flowers are from Cuttlebug, the crown and swirls are die cut from the Silhouette machine.

Crafty Gals Corner--#62 All about the Girls--pink, crowns, swirls, flowers :)

The Sisterhood of Crafters--Use die cuts or punches--the flowers are from Cuttlebug, the crown and swirls are die cut from the Silhouette machine.

Silhouette Challenges--#35 Must use the Silhouette--anything goes--the base of the card, swirls, and crown.
