Daisy Doodles Creative Challenge Blog Hop

 Ribbitt says HI! and welcome to day three of Daisy Doodles Creative Challenge Blog Hop to 
the opening of Miss Daisy's new store!
  You have arrived! This is the second stop on the Daisy Doodles challenge Blog Hop. If it's the hop you want better head on over to the DDCC blog where the hop is starting. If you came from Daisy Doodles Creative Challenge blog, well, then you are right where you are supposed to be. Did you remember to leave a comment on DDCC? 

Have a seat, get comfortable!

There's a lot going on and this post is lengthy so grab a cup of tea, coffee, or your favorite beverage.

I have a hatbox. It was given to me by a friend not too long ago. It was papered and decorated so lovely. I keep some of my favorite cards in it. O! It has become my card box, since my hats don't need a box! Here is my pop up hatbox card. I added my own stripes on the digi to match the paper.

The inside is a pop up where I used the masking technique. I used the same digital for the main image and a
rubber stamp set for the flowers. I took the easy way to make the pop up since my card was essentially done on the outside. To pop-up any image take a strip of matching cs (about 1/2" - 3/4" wide by 4 inches long) and score three times at one inch intervals, fold and glue one part to base of card and one to the inside front cover. It should look like a square that is encroaching into the base of your card and that's where you adhere your image. If you are interested in the easy pop up directions, scroll down to the end of this post.
The new store opens June 3rd, Daisy's Digi Doodles store. Sign up for the newsletter and you'll receive a free image and your name will go in for the draw to win another great prize! For more info check into the store on June 3rd. You may also receive 21% off in the store as DD is celebrating 21 years with her DH on June 3rd.
There's a word search going on over at SNR. Head on over there and see what Daisy Doodles has for free images. Then there is a Challenge of sorts with a prize here on SNR.
Oh, and don't forget that there is a secret blog in the hop that is giving away a Summer Fun set if you leave a comment on each and every blog along the way. There are only nine posts to visit and you really don't want to miss out on a free digital image you? There are ten images in the new release and you could be one of the first crafters to own it for free! That would give you images to play with and get extra points in the biweekly challenges over at Daisy Doodles Creative Challenge Blog.

Thanks for hopping along with us today!
Lawren is the next stop on the hop and she is so creative, I can hardly wait to see what she did for today's hop. Don't forget to comment on every DT and guest designer's blog and Daisy Doodles Creative Challenge Blog to qualify for the free Summer Fun digital image set.

Now for some pics of the strip and inside of the pop up card to give you an idea on how to put it together.
The strip here is 4 " by 1" with score lines at the dotted lines, one inch intervals. Fold and burnish with your bone folder so it shapes up like a box.
Glue/adhere the two sides that connect to the inside of your card. I let the opening of my box be at the right angle of my card when it is open.
This strip above in my card wasn't quite long enough but I used it anyway. Had it been four inches long the opening would have come right to the inside front of the card. Then all you have to do is glue your pop up to the front of the strip.
For those of you that came for the pop up instructions I have included another link to the next stop on the hop, Lawren.

And remember any time the links don't work or you get lost just click here on DDCC and it will take you to the beginning where you will find the list for Day 3.
Thanks for staying, relaxing, and just hopping along with us.
Good luck, hope you all win!
