Earlier this month Karen Burniston posted a Pop 'n Cuts Flying Easel card on her blog that she created for one of her classes for the UStamp with Dawn and Friends: Cards With Cool Moves online classes.
Of course I loved Karen’s card so here is my version of her card. I decided to go with a Christmas theme and used the Sizzix Christmas Tree Framelits inside of the butterfly that Karen used on her card.
This card uses Karen’s SU Exclusive Pop N Cuts Card Base and also the Sizzix Funky Labels Framelits.
To create the Christmas Tree I used the smallest tree in the Sizzix Christmas Tree Framelits set and die cut 4 trees from designer paper. I then folded each of the trees in half and glued them back to back onto each other, placing some hemp twine in the middle as the hanger. I also added some colored rhinestones to each of the trees to pretty it up a little.
I added a button to the label on the base of my card which helps keep the front of the card in it’s folded upright position … so I can either use the top of the framelit or the bottom to keep it open.
Here is my card when it is folded closed … the Christmas tree can be folded flat so it will be suitable to be placed in an envelope to be mailed if needed.
