Merry Christmas!


Hi everyone,

Karen Burniston has invited me again this month to join her and her fabulous designers for her Sizzix September Designer Challenge.

This month the challenge is Holidays!

We could make ANY sort of project for ANY upcoming holiday, such as Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, etc.


I decided to create a Christmas card for today’s challenge using the Karen’s Sizzix Pop N Cuts dies. For the front of the card I used the Sizzix Pop N Cuts A2 Base. To decorate my card I used some cute elephants stamps from Wild Rose Studio.


For the inside of my card I used the Sizzix Pop N Cuts Wavy Labels Insert. As you can see I decided to create my card in the landscape format rather than the normal portrait format. When I attached the inside portion of my card to the outside card I added it in the opposite direction than I normally would (upside down) … doing this meant that the sentiment in the pop up portion of the card was more prominent when the card was open.

To create the layers on the Wavy Labels Insert I used the Sizzix Wavy Labels Framelits.


Here is a close-up of the left hand side of my card when opened.


And here is a close-up of the right hand side of my card when it is open.

If you are looking to purchase Karen’s Sizzix Pop N Cuts in Australia you can find them at Photo Continental.
