Pop up box card

Today I worked on a pop up box card for the first time ... it was quite FUN! I downloaded the Hearts Aflame SVG kit from SVGCuts. I was purchasing another kit and it was FREE with a purchase value of $9.98 until 4 February 2015 ... check out their site for further info. I really like the kit as it offers 5 different cards which are lovely and can be adapted to other occasions like weddings and birthdays, etc.

Anyway back to my box card: Because I really wanted to try this file today, I used what cardstock I had on hand, I mixed red, pink and purple and used some patterned February/Valentines paper ... next time I'll concentrate on sourcing the prettiest paper and cardstock before cutting.

The card and paper was cut using my Silhouette Cameo, and I used Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive.
