Glittery Sleigh Pop-Up Card

Good morning friends

Today is December first, which is the start of Christmas for our family. So I have a Christmas card to share!

I love Suzanne Cannon's 'A Way With Words' calligraphy dies - they are just exquisite. I added the Believe to the front of my card (three layers deep) although that is hard to see the depth in the photo. I cut the bottom edge with an Agatha Edge and added the Agatha Edge flourish to the front as well as a snowflake die cut. The trees have sparkle to them for some festive fun.

When you open up the card, I have Honey the Bear disquised as a Santa-Hat-Wearing-Polar Bear. Holding a candy cane, of course. The beauty of the Sleigh Pop-Up Gift Card Holder, is that you can use it as a regular Pop-Up card as well, even though I chose to use it as designed for this card.

For this card, I cut the sleigh from glittery fun foam! the Silver base was attached to a white card stock layer for stability. I love the puffy look the fun foam gives the sleigh.

The brim & pom pom of Honey's hat were cut from sparkly felt for even more texture.

Here is a side view of the card so you can see the Pop-Up a little better.
