I’m working on some projects that children could do and I came up with this cute Christmas card. I got the idea from a book called “Pop-up cards” from Sandi Genovese and I modified it for this project…
The outside is quite simple. I used the Top Note Bigz die to cut the front in Bashful Blue card stock. I embossed it with the Perfect Polka dots folder. I added a strip of Whisper White card stock that I tore to make a “rough edge”. I cut it with Top Note and glued in place over the blue one. The tree and the star were cut using the Holiday Collection Framelits dies. I embossed the tree with the Fancy Fan folder and I added some dazzling diamonds. I added dazzling diamonds on the star and the “snow” edge. The greeting is from the “Greeting of the Season” set. I added a Gumball Green Stitched Satin ribbon to tie a bow and keep the card closed.
The inside is even more interesting with all the Christmas trees standing up! I stamped the trees with a stamp from “Scentsational Season” in Gumball Green and added Cherry Cobbler Dazzling details. Then I glued the trees on the accordion…
To make the accordion card, I cut a 12″ x 12″ Real Red sheet down to 5-1/2″ by 12″. Then using the Simply scored scoring tool I scored at 4″ and 8″. Then scored every 1/2″ in between these 2 lines. I made this template with My Digital Studio…
