'Stitchy Bear Stamps was created when a good friend of mine Sue from Beary Dust Stamps and I (Stitchy) were selling our products in the same store. One day we got an unexpected email saying that the store was shutting down and when we went to the store, poof it was gone...So, after the dust cleared and several emails later, Stitchy Bear Stamps was born. We gathered all the other creator's from the original store and away we went. It has been quite a learning experience but none the less we are growing everyday with new fabulous creators. I have always believed when God closes one door another Bigger and Better one opens ;)... Thank you all who have read our little story, I do hope you enjoyed ;) stitchy aka stitchy stamps."
My pop up card tutorial
4 1/4"x11" piece of card stock for base
21/2" x 5" piece of card stock for tag
2 3/4" x 5 1/4 " piece of card stock for tag matting
(If you're doing like me you're gonna need extra patterned paper for decorating)
Double sided tape
corner punch for the tag
Score the 4 1/4"x11" piece of card stock at 1", 2 3/4", 3 3/4", 5 1/2", 7 1/4", 8 1/4" and 10"
Turn the same cardstock around and find the middle and mark at 5/8" in from both sides and cut between the marked lines to make room for the tag
Add the double sided tape to the front side at each end. One at the top of the last score and on the bottom side at the other score line at the very other end
Make your own tag using the 2 1/2" x 5" piece of cardstock and adhere to the mat that is 2 3/4" x 5 1/4". Use the crop-o-dile and the corner punch.
Decorate the box using cardstock and patterned papers. I just decorated the panels that are going to show. Here's my cardstock
Then I attached my tag. Make sure it's centered and in lines up with the bottom
Here it is all finished with embellishments
and here it is closed:
