You are looking at the Side of Fries 3D Pop-Up Box Card I made for a birthday card. This card is very colorful and is a lot of fun. It actually looks like a box of french fries that you would get from a fast food restaurant! For the box base I used red paper, with a blue layer going across the front of it. With a yellow layer on top of that. I also stamped "birthday wishes" in a label. That sits on top of the yellow layer. The french fries inside the box are a light yellow color. That I inked around with a light brown ink. The fries are also 3D that stand upright in the fry box.
