Hello Bluebird – October Release – North Pole Littles and Fall Buddies

Hello again and welcome back for another Hello Bluebird post!  All products will be ready tonight at 7PM MT.  I’m here to share 2 more interactive cards using two sets from this month’s release.  If you missed my last post, you can check it out HERE.  I created a longer card and a double slider card.  Let’s dive right in to today’s cards!

HB North Pole Littles 1

My first card is a card in a box and features the new North Pole Littles set.  I used to make these a lot but haven’t in a while…of course, there are dies now too.  But I didn’t use them for this project because I don’t mind hand cutting and scoring….and I needed to be brand-loyal when designing for Hello Bluebird :).   I created a visual long ago.  Here it is if you’re interested:

Horizonal Card in a Box ImageThis is a horizontal card-in-a-box.  Here are the dimensions that you will need for a card that fits in an A2 envelop (card size:  4.25″ x 5.50″):

Base:  4.25″ x 12″

With your base sitting horizontally, score at 2″, 5.50″, 7.50″, AND 11″

Turn you base 90 degrees so that it is now sitting vertically and score it at 2″

You will want at least 2 inserts:  4 11/16″ x 1″, scored at 5/8″ from each end to fit inside the box.

The “dotted” lines are what you want to cut for the flaps on your box card.  You’ll also want to cut away the gray areas in the image – saving only a small tab at the bottom of the box to adhere and construct your box.

Once I had my box constructed, I used white glitter cardstock to mat each of the side panels and used the Hill and Dale dies to die cut more landscape pieces for the inserts.

For the back panel that doesn’t fold over, I matted it with a piece of cardstock ink-blended with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink and embossed some white snowflakes over it. I colored all the images using Copic markers and die cut them out using the North Pole Littles companion dies.  For the gold that you see, I used a Wink of Stella Gold sparkle pen.

Copic colors used:  R17, R29 (reds); C1, C6 (grays); B00, B12, B24 (blues); R20 (blush), E50 (skin); Y15 (hair); E31, E35 (browns – hair, sign); E30, E31, E35 (deer); YG07. G03 (greens); G00, BG24 (teal)

HB North Pole Littles 3

I arranged everything on the box to create my scene and stamped the sentiment on a banner I cut and ink-sponged only the top.


My second card is fall-themed and uses the new set called Fall Buddies.  I used the Birch Trees dies to create an ink-blended background using Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide inks for a shaker card.

HB Fall Buddies 1

I colored the images using Copic markers.

Copic colors used:  YR30, E41, E42, E43 (deer); E31, E34, E37 (squirrel); W0, W2 (bunny); Y08, YR12, YR15 (pumpkin); R17, R29 (red scarf); RV04, RV17 (pink scarf); R20 (blush); YG06, G05, Y08, R14, R17 (leaves)

HB Fall Buddies 2

The frame is from the Gallery Frame Die #2 set and I adhered acetate to it then added foam tape in order to create a shaker front.  I filled the shaker with a variety of miscellaneous sequins that I have.

HB Fall Buddies 3

To finish the card, I mounted the frame over the sequins, arranged and adhered my images, then embossed the sentiment in white over black cardstock.  I hope you enjoyed these projects!  Be sure to check the Hello Bluebird shop to see the entire release!  Have a wonderful day!
