Gingerbread Pop-Up Gift Card Box

 Hello and welcome! Today's card features Karen Burniston's Bitty Ball Pop-Up and Pretty Springy Ball Box template. I have been very busy trying to make these gift card boxes with fun pop-ups and when I found a Gingerbread patterned paper, I had to make a Gingerbread pop-up!

I started with the Pretty Springy Ball Box template for the 4.5 x 4.5 box. I used a heavy weight 110lb kraft cardstock and Gingerbread patterned paper. 

Once the box was created and ready to go, I started on the pop-up Gingerbread girl. I used the Bitty Ball die set and the same heavy weight kraft paper to create the two bitty balls. 

Before I put the balls together, I laid them flat and flicked different colors of Distress Ink to create a baked cookie look. Then, with a blending brush, I added Distress Ink in Vintage Photo along the edges. 

Once I glued the two balls together, I used the die from the Snowman Add-On's, that creates the buttons for the snowman to create the eyes and candy buttons for the Gingerbread girl. I used the smile from the Bitty Ball die set and the eyes die to create the blush on her cheeks. 

I also used the arm pieces that come with the Bitty Ball and die cut them from Kraft cardstock. I added Distress Ink in Vintage Photo around the edges and used my Gelly Pen to create an icing trim around the arms. I also added an icing trim around the Gingerbread body. I die cut a glittery bow and added it to her head. Then I glued her into the box using Lineco Neutral pH glue

I die cut a gift card holder using My Favorite Things Gift Card Pocket and the same kraft cardstock and patterned paper. 

I created a to and from piece to add to the front of the gift card pocket using a program called Adobe Illustrator on my computer. I printed it on heavy weight smooth white cardstock and die cut it out using a small rectangle die from one of Karen Burniston's other sets. 

I love how this cute little Gingerbread Girl turned out. I really hope the recipient of this card likes it as much as I do! 

As always, thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
