Merry Christmas


Merry Christmas Everyone!!!!!!!!!

It’s Christmas Day already down here in Australia. I must have been a good girl again this year cause I did very well *smile*

There are many of you who visit my blog regularly, so I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all so much for your support throughout the year. Hope you all have a wonderful and safe Christmas!


For my card today I am playing with a stamp set that I received from a friend for Christmas (a little early). This is the Sizzix/Tim Holtz Snowman Blueprint stamp/die set. Even though we don’t have snow down here on Christmas as we are in the middle of summer, I had to use this set to create a Christmas Card.


One of my favorite styles of cards these days is pop up cards using Karen Burniston’s Pop N Cuts dies! For my card today I used the Sizzix Pop N Cuts Square Card with Ornate Edge and the Sizzix Pop N Cuts Multi Tier Insert.

The Trees at the back of my snowy scene are from the Sizzix/Tim Holtz Holiday Joy Stamp/Die set.


Here is a closer look at the multi tier portion of this card … it actually has 5 pop up options, but for my card I only used 3 of them … the main centre piece and then the two skinny pieces on the side which have the row of trees attached to them. I love how versatile this insert can be. I added the snowdrifts to the bottom of the trees for a little more support for the ones not attached to the pop up piece.


Here is one last look at the pop up piece of my card, this time at an angle so you can see the various pop up pieces better.

Stamps: Snowman Blueprints; Holiday Joy – Tim Holtz
Paper: White; Red; Green; White Glitter Card; DP – Basic Grey
Other: Black Ink; Sizzix PNC Square Card with Ornate Edge; Sizzix PNC Multi Tier Insert; Rhinestones; Foam Tape; Copics
