This is was the first time that I did a Pop Up book and had to turn this tutorial on Splitcoaststamper to help me create my card today. After a few scrap paper runs, and templates, I finally figure it out! Let me tell you this card is so fun and unique!!
The Santa Sleigh bundle was sitting on my desk and I thought this would be the perfect card to use this set on!! My card base is 6 by 12 score at 6". I then cut another piece of Crumb Cake card stock 5 3/4 by 5 3/4 for my next layer and ran this though the Big Shot with the Cable Knit Impression Folder. I love the deep impression this folder gives. Plus it gives me that warm and cozy feeling that the holidays brings!!
I stamp my tree onto Garden Green card stock with Garden Green ink and my sleigh onto Cherry Cobbler cards sock with Cherry Cobbler ink. Using my Santa Sleigh Dies and my Big Shot, I cut them. This is one of my favourite things about framelits, you always get a clean cut!!
My new Stitched Shapes Framelits arrived the other day and I couldn't wait to use them!! My scallop frame is from the Layering Circle Collection and the White stitched square is from my Stitched Shapes Framelits. My greeting and snowflake are from the Tin of Tags stamp set.
Now here comes the magic...when you open the card, the inside POPS like it's a story book!!!
How fun is that!! When I was planning this card, I have vision the night before Christmas and the stocking were hung by the tree waiting for them to be filled!!
My first panel was created using the greeting from the Warmth and Cheer stamp set!!
My second panel was created with the Christmas Pines stamp set, the Santa Sleigh Bundle and the Hearth and Home thinlits! I embossed my white piece with the Brick Embossing folder as I wanted it to look like a fireplace. My stocking were coloured with my markers and I used Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake.
I added the Bright Candy dots to my tree to so they would look like ornaments. Of course I had to have a present under the tree!! I don't know about you but I LOVE the festival season and can't wait to start decoration for the festival season!!
