Pop Up Christmas Cards

Hi Friends!

Today I am sharing the Christmas Cards I made for friends and family this year. Since we are not visiting anyone still because of the pandemic, I wanted to make sure I sent some extra special, full of love cards this year.

I used the Olde Time Christmas 12×12 designer paper pad from Craft Smith. I am pretty sure this is a Michael’s paper pad. I cannot tell you for sure how old it is because I have been trying not to buy any new paper pads until I finish the ones I have so this may be a little older. I don’t know if it’s a pack you can still buy or not.

All of my cards 6 1/4 x 4 1/2 and some are horizontal and some are vertical, it really just depended on the front decorations.

I am going to start with all the Santa cards!

I fussy cut some of the Santa’s from the paper pack and pop dotted them on the front for extra dimension.

Next up are the tag cards. All of these embellishments were cut from tags or cut aparts in the paper collection.

I have a few Poinsettia cards that are both vertical and horizontal.

I made a total of 14 cards but one of them was an exact duplicate so I didn’t add it here. I also used the Colorbox Chestnut Brush pad to go around all of the paper to get rid of the white and to add more dimension.

And finally, all of the insides of the cards have a Pop Up Poinsettia box! The paper is different on each one to match the outside but they all basically look like this.

I added Gold Glitter Spray on all of the Poinsettia’s before I added them to the cards. You cannot really see it here but it looks really sparkly.

I cut each of the Poinsettia’s out on my Silhouette Cameo and then switched to my Cricut Maker half way through. My Cameo started cutting incorrectly midpoint and I now have to trouble shoot to fix it…big time bummer.

I thought I made enough cards for everyone I wanted to send them to but ended up not having enough! But I definitely did not want to cut anymore poinsettias so unfortunately had to cut a few folks from the list.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed all of my cards!

Wishing you a wonderful holiday season & Happy New Year!

HI Friends!

Today’s project share is a Christmas Double Slider Card! I have been wanting to make one of these cards for what seems like forever but I have been so intimidated by the tutorials I have seen. They all just seemed so confusing.

Well, not anymore. I figured it out and I created my own tutorial!

First, here is my first double slider card!

I stickled up the spiders and the spider web on the inside and they are so sparkly & shimmery.

I also added a stamped sentiment on the inside but there is still space for a message.

Here is the tutorial so you can make this card yourself:
