Christmas pop-up card

Hello and welcome.

I’m really happy to be joining the lovely ladies for the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge this week, where Rosi has challenged us to make a pop-up card.

I watched a fab tutorial by Sam on Youtube the other day and was inspired to make my own version…

I used papers from my Prima Christmas paper pad and some thick whisper white card from Stampin Up to make this fun design which has a hexagonal base.

I cut nested circles with dies by Claritystamp, and added a Christmas sled die cut by Sizzix as the focal point, cut from white, pink and silver card.  I did a little inking around the poinsettia to add shading. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set by Stampin Up.

This card folds flat and fits beautifully into a 6″ square envelope, and has a clever spring underneath so it pops up into shape as the recipient takes it out of the envelope.

This card was super easy to do and I loved how it turned out.

I hope you’ve been inspired to join in the challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown – we’d love to see what you make.

Enjoy your weekend
