Don’t Open Until Christmas!


Hi all,

Recently the stamp club I go to each month held their first ever shoe box swap. Each of us had to create a card with a Christmas theme and enough kits so that everyone else could duplicate what we had created.

I was still mulling over what I would be creating for this swap when I came across a blog post in my Google Reader on how to create a Pull Up Present card … my problem was solved!!!!!!!! LeaAnn’s version is a lot smaller than mine suitable for a gift card so I had to play around with the measurements so I could make it more a standard size card to fit inside a standard envelope. My finished card measures 11cm x 14cm.


Here you can see the pull out card beside the outer card … the top of the parcel is attached to the inner card and just pulls out.


And here is a close up of the inner card. I enjoyed making this and will be making more in the future I am sure!

Stamps: Bear with Present – Lili of the Valley; Do Not Open Sentiment – Stampendous; Merry Christmas Sentiment – Paper Inspirations
Paper: White; Red; Green; DP – Kaisercraft
Other: Black Ink; Cuttlebug Embossing Folders; Oval Punches; Foam Tape; Copics
