Woodland Critters Pop-Up Christmas Card

Good morning friends

I admit, I went a little overboard on this card. I should have been happy with the card front, but oh no - I have to also make it a Pop-up using the Twist Circle Pop-Up by Karen Burniston. When finished, the card weighed a lot with all the layers and foam tape - and I had to add extra postage on it. Lesson learned - but I AM really pleased with the finished card regardless.

The card base is a larger card/envelope set from Michaels ... I love that with Pop it Ups YOU get to choose the size of card. I had been saving this sticker sheet to use on a card for my friend and the Lawn Fawn Leafy Backdrop seemed the perfect die to use with them. (SO happy I added that one to my collection).

Below you can see the card as it is opening ...

And here it is fully open - with a cute squirrel and log on the Pop-Up embellishment. I am adoring all the different plaid patterned papers that are so trendy right now, and this one has a bit of sparkle to it.

At the Mesa Rubber Stamp Show this Spring, I picked up this Impression Obsession sprig set that cuts 6 little sprigs with one pass. I just knew it would come in handy and I've already used it a fair bit. Here I added some of the sprigs to one of the pine cone stickers on the sheet and an IO cardinal cut from red card stock touched with a Wink of Stella.

I hope my friend likes this card as much as I did making it! And I know she will have fun recycling & repurposing the elements on her cards/tags next year.

***NOTE:  I will be moving my cards and paper crafting to Painted Mountain Cards in the New Year. I've been thinking about it for a long while, and the New Year seems like a good time to make the change. I will leave this blog open, as there are frequent hits from Pinterest and over 5 years worth of cards etc to reference.
