IBS Easter Wishes in a Box

Happy Saturday!

Today I have an Easter Pop-Up Box Card made with lots of Inspired by Stamping products.  The colors and flowers scream Spring and Easter!

Have a look:

A view from a slightly higher angle:

The Spring flower images are from the IBS Beautiful Iris, Spring Lilacs, and Vintage Roses stamp sets.  I used paper from the pretty Spring Lilacs paper pad.  The sentiment is from the Easter stamp set and was die cut with the Fancy Label Dies 2.

I started with the SCS (Standard A2 Horizontal) Tutorial, but tweaked it a bit. I cut my CS 4 1/4 x 12 and scored the flaps at 1 3/4 (the tutorial measurements were 6 1/4 x 12 and scored at 2). And, I used acetate rather than CS for the inside strips.

Lastly, a side view:

I am entering today's card in the following challenges:

The Card Concept Challenge #4 - Use a floral theme (I think my card fits in the Classy & Elegant theme)

Mod Squad Challenge 2.0 - Thinking of Spring (create a Spring-themed card)

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes with Pearls

Thanks for stopping by!

Are these not THE ABSOLUTE CUTEST creations ever? I 'discovered' my first one yesterday in blogland and was blown away for the cleverness of this 'card'. Now to see a second one, and in such stunning colors, has me giddy with excitement to create one as well! The rich shades of purple are the perect colors for your Easter wishes. I can just image how thirlled the recipient of this card will be! Thanks for sharing your talent with us at the Card Concept Challenge!
