Super cute Christmas Pop Up Card

Creating pop up cards has become a fun learning process/ challenge for me. Just like any other card, it has its own learning curve… and I think I am finally understanding well how to make these cards. I made a video tutorial to share with you what I have learned so far and create with you a super cute Christmas card.

I have realized that I get far too excited when I envision a card and when I actually have to make, several stamp sets or dies are needed to make it. The good news is that it shows that we can mix and match our stamps to create new outcomes. There are 3 different stamp sets/ dies being used in this card: Jingle, Jingle, Jingle, Cup of tea, and Regal Reindeer. I am also using the Sweetest Christmas Designer Series paper.

A twist on the planter fun fold card.

This “planter” fun fold card is definitely a card you need to try! The version I saw was focused on the “planter” part of the card… I figure we could spin it a little and get creative. I can only imagine the happiness it will bring to the recipient. Let’s learn together how to make this card. Check out the video tutorial for the instructions. Below you will find the free pdf tutorial.

I made 2 different versions of this card, using products from the Mini Catalog. The card on the video uses the Kindest Gnomes bundle and Storybook Gnomes paper. These 2 products belong to the Storybook Gnomes Suite, a super fun and playful suite in the mini catalog. I love the the bundle can be used for all seasons. The second card is a Halloween card. This card uses a combination of last years products and the Scary Cute Bundle.

Pop up book card with twist
