May Your Merry Be Very!

Hi everyone,

My card today is for a challenge I am doing with a couple of friends of mine. Each month we get together and go to our favorite stamp/scrapbook store and come home with one or two new goodies. So we decided to also challenge ourselves each month using a product we all have.

This time round to keep the challenge was to create a card with a Christmas theme.  We could use any of the products that we had purchased on our latest shopping trip. I am not sure I got much as I already had the new Pop It Ups dies and I had purchased the Forest Friends stamp set a week or two before. So I just selected some products that I knew they had brought instead.

As you can see I created a Pop Up Card using the Merry Christmas Pop Up Card set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. One of the things I love about Karen's dies is the ability to place the dies anywhere on the fold like you want. For my card today I placed the pop up on the right hand side of the card so I had room to place the deer next to it. 

At the top and bottom edges of my card I added a snowflake border die.

Here is a side on view of my card so you can see the pop up portion of the card a little easier.

Here is the front of my card. I used the same designer paper I used on the inside and added snow using the Outdoor Edges die set and a snowflake border. I also added a sentiment, I used the fishtail flag from the Lorna Label Pop Up card.

Paper: White; Blue; Bundled Up DP - Carta Bella
Dies: Merry Christmas Pop Up Card; Lorna Label Pop Up Card; Outdoor Edges - designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs; Frostyville Border - Memory Box
