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

Tim Holtz 3D Snowflake Christmas card

Hello and welcome.

There’s another fab challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week.  This time, the colour choices are green, white and gold…

Looking through my paper collection, I thought these two patterned green papers looked lovely together…

The striped paper is a retired Stampin Up design. I mat and layered the papers with old olive cardstock onto a white base card.

For the focal point, I die cut a stitched circle of whisper white, and popped up the 3D snowflake in gold cardstock, die cut using the 3D snowflake embosslit by Tim Holtz.

I chose not to add a sentiment and instead let the beautiful snowflake shine.

I hope you’ve been inspired to join the challenge over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week – we would love to see your cards.

Enjoy your weekend
