Today features a cardmaking first for me: a 3D card project! And it’s all thanks to a cleverly designed die set!
It’s Day 1 of the Rainbows blog hop for Simon Says Stamp and this 3D Card Die set is just too freaking cool! Never thought I’d make a pop up card, but then again, never thought I’d be a card maker.
So glad I am!
Here is my video showing you how to use the new 3D Card Die set:

Such a cute & fun box card!
Very funny. I had other ideas for that adorable little pop-up box…like maybe a pretty little watercolored flower or a cute image for a child. But combined with those messages….perfect….such a fun way to use it.
Your card is so cute! Love the box design
This 3D die is so unusual, it is a great idea.
Sue KUJAWA says
I love seeing all the ideas on this hop.

Poo! You know, I had this die set in my cart and then I decided on other stuff. Now I wish I had kept it. Your card is delightful – very appealing visually. I am going to add that back to the cart……

This pop-up idea is so versatile. You could dress it up or dress it down. Embellish the box or not. Florals, seascapes with a boat that pops up, birthday cakes, tons of balloons, – the sky is the limit! Thanks for the inspiration!

Hola, Cathy! I love that purple! 💜💜💜
Marie Hansen says
Oh my! The “Sassy Insides” speak directly to my sassy insides! So great!
Mary G says
I LOVE these sentiments Cathy! Especially the display one. I have a friend who actually told she didn’t get making cards, it took too much time and too much money for no return. But I sent her a home made card anyway and guess what! She liked it! She said it was totally worth it and she wants another one! That “snarky” sentiment is going on every single card I send her now! 🙂
Haha!! Love this so much!!
Leslie Scholes says
Such a great card!
Linda T says
Very cute card. So unexpected and fun!
