Merry Christmas


Hi everyone,

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.

Stamps: Merry Christmas – Victoria’s Secret
Paper: Burgundy; Green; Belle Collection DP – Kaisercraft
Other: Burgundy Ink; Green Ink; Sizzix Christmas Tree Framelits; Sizzix Funky Labels Framelits; SU Exclusive Pop N Cuts Card Base; Hemp Cord; Ribbon; Button; Foam Tape

I LOVE IT!!! Holy cow, yours is amazing! That tree looks spectacular hanging there. Love it. Can you make one with a snowflake? I wanted to do a Halloween Bat for my original but my SU order didn't come in time.

Your tree card is beautiful. Karen does have some great ideas doesn't she. I might have to join UStamp with Dawn and Friends just to get the instructions. A snowflake would be beautiful, I'm sure.

An owl would work, too. I used to collect owls but had to stop, it got way out of hand. Now my stamping supplies are way out of hand:)
