Valentines Pop-up card, Envelope & Box..

Just popping on to share what we've been making at the workshops this week...

Sharni & I both absolutely love this colour combo.. Real red, Basic Black & Whisper White.

I've been asked by a few of my lovely ladies that come along to the workshops for the measurements of the cardstock, probably not the best, but if your were at the workshops it should (hopefully) make sense to you...

Pop-up Card:
Basic black - 13cm x 7.5cm
Real red 10cm x 18.5cm - scored at 6cm in from each side.
Real red (Base) - 10.5cm x 28cm - scored at 2.5cm, 7cm, 9.5cm & 14cm from both sides. (the 14cm score line, is the centre. thats where we cut the slot for the pop-up bit)

Basic black - 27.5cm x 19cm - scored at 9.5 from one end & 6.5 from the other. & at 2cm down each length to give you the flaps.

Basic black (origami box) - 21cm x 21cm.
Real red (box cover) - 20.8 x 9.5 - scored at 8.5cm in from each end.

You also need, for decoration..
2 x Scalloped ovals - basic black
3 x 1 1/4" circles for sentiments
2 x 1 3/8 circles - real red
1 x 1 3/8 circle - basic black
1 x scalloped circle - real red
3 x 'dazzling diamond' hearts

Enjoy making them again ladies & see you all soon!!! xxx

Thank you so much for making me feel welcome last night, I really enjoyed the workshop and hope I can get to a few more, the journey is a bit of a nightmare - took 1½ hours to get home :(

I'll post pics of my creations from last night along with a link to your blog this evening when I get home.

Best Wishes

It's even nicer when you see the real thing.
Think DH is going to be impressed when he get given them tomorrow! (I think he'll take more notice of the chocs I put inside the box tho'! LOL
Thanks for the measurements - haven't had chance to play yet, so it saves me working it all out!
