----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Are you ready for our next fun challenge? Challenge #19- Anything Goes.  But first here is our feature inspiration tutorial....

The DT made some very and creative pop up box cards using wonderful stamped images from the 
DRS Designs Store.

My tip: use chipboard or other heavy embellishments on your three flaps you want to stay open to keep them open.

Tip: Go around the edges of your die cuts with a brush tip marker. It gives them a more finished look, especially if you hand cut them.

Tip: Mat your patterned paper. It gives the whole box card a more finished look.

Tip: Check out different You Tube videos, like the one featured for this challenge, to adjust sizes for your box card. You can even do a horizontal one.

TiP:  Add borders to your strips that hold up your pop ups.

Tip: Don't be afraid to give this card a try.  It is so much easier than it looks and SO much fun!

  Tip: You don't necessarily have to use the entire stamped image on a project, try cutting  or punching out the main image it can give a totally different perspective and look to a project!
