Christmas pop-up card

Hello and welcome.

It’s the final challenge for October 2021 over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week, where the task is to make a pop-up card.  This is the front of my card…

But inside is where the magic is …

I was recently inspired by a lovely lady I found on Youtube – Tanu Creative.  She made a pop-up photo album, but I thought it would work well as a card too, as a pile of Christmas presents.  I chose 3 designs of paper from the Christmas Village collection, and used elegant eggplant card by Stampin Up for the base of the boxes.  I attached a plain piece of paper to a white card base before adhering the stacked presents.

I went a bit crazy with the glittery snowflakes from the Tim Holtz snowflake die set.  I cut out every snowflake out to see what they were like and then used nearly all of them on this card!  Oh well, if you can’t go a bit crazy at Christmas, when can you?

I stamped the sentiments for the front and inside of the card from the Lots of Joy stamp set by Stampin Up.  The decorations for the presents were die cut from the Christmas Stocking die set by Sizzix, and stamped with the Itty Bitty Christmas set by Stampin Up.

The stitched circle die cuts on the front are in daffodil delight and whisper white, and the die cut fairy light is pool party card with a little silver card for the top, with yet more sparkly snowflakes.

It all folds fairly flat for posting, but I think I may just have to hand-deliver this one as it won’t be going too far from home!

I’m linking my card up to the HLS October anything goes with dies challenge.

I had lots of fun making this card.  It took me a while to figure out the placement of the boxes, but once I had that done, I just went nuts with the decorations!

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

Enjoy your weekend

Pop up box card for a Las Vegas wedding …

Hi and welcome to my blog.

It’s been a very exciting time for my daughter and her husband recently – they’ve been to their friends’ wedding in Las Vegas! I was asked to make something special for the happy couple so I chose a pop up box card …


Pop up box cards certainly have the wow factor, like the one I made a few years back for my husband for our silver wedding anniversary, so I knew this was the type of card I would make – all I had to do was decide on the design. From what I’ve been told, both the bride and groom loved it.


The good thing is that this dimensional card folds flat to fit inside a normal sized envelope, but once opened, it pops up to reveal the surprise.  The panel at the back gave ample space for a greeting to be added.

I loved making this one – it was great fun to do. Hope you like it.
