Holiday Card In A Box - (NEW RELEASE!!)

Good morning friends

The Designer Challenge Team was pretty excited when Karen Burniston showed us the Flower Pot Pop-Stand die set in her latest release. It's another completely generic die that can be used for many occasions and themes. It can be a stand alone card, attached inside a folded card so it expands as the card is opened, or as I like to do - add it to a circle base for a free standing card that's quite stable.

Without the base, this card fits into a standard A2 envelope for mailing. With the base it fits in a 5 x 7" envelope. I assembled the Flower Pot die as per the instructions, then added some chipboard embellishments from my stash to decorate the inner braces.  It turned out so cute!

After cutting the red scalloped base (using the included Pop-Stand die) I adhered the Decorated Flower Pot to that, then added a larger white circle of card stock. Note, the white one was scored in the centre but I cut along the score line then attached it to either side of the score line. Leaving that narrow gap along the score line allows the base to open completely flat and since it's on the back you don't see it.

I cut two identical tags and a reinforcement using Tag Pivot decorator dies, then fussy cut the white tag smaller leaving just the green mat.

See how it folds completely flat to insert into an envelope?

Note, the Flower Pot Pop Stand new release die is so popular, it is already sold out! It is expected to be back in stock around September 6th, which really isn't that far away if you are having to wait.
