Happy Birthday thinlit die, Poppin' Cube box card

My lovely husband celebrated his birthday at the beginning of January so I made him a Poppin' card. I watched a You Tube video by the very talented Gemma Clarke of Made By Gemma last February and have wanted to make one since. You can find Gemma's link here, please check it out.

I started with a base of our favourite colour, Elegant Eggplant and as SU don't have any DSP with Elegant Eggplant I decided to make my own. I used one of the stamps from the Timeless Textures stamp set and stamped at an angle all over the Whisper White Layer. I the used the Happy Birthday die to cut out an Elegant Eggplant sentiment which I cut in half.

Thanks to Gemma's great tutorial and the PDF instructions, the box was very straightforward to put together. I used the large letters framelits to cut out a G, A, R and Y which I adhered on the four sides of the cube.

I'm pleased to say that Gary loved his card and it still has pride of place on our mantelpiece.
