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

Season of Cheer …

Hello and welcome to my blog. This week’s colour challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown is to use soft shades of grey, blue and green.  I’m loving the Season of Cheer dsp from Stampin’ Up that I got in their sale.  The paper patterns are so gorgeous – look how lovely this snowflake paper is with its different shades of blue… 


As the paper is so pretty, I decided not to cover it up and just wrapped a length of soft grey ribbon around the card, tied in a bow.  The foliage, cut from certainly celery cardstock, was tucked under the bow and a few adhesive pearls sprinkled around. The sentiment is from the Lots of Joy stamp set by Stampin Up, cut out with an oval framelit and popped up on dimensionals.

I hope you like my card for this week. The Design Team has created some lovely cards to inspire you, so do pop over to 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge blog to take a look.  And if you’d like to join the Design Team, now’s your chance – hop on over to the blog for details.
