For my card today I am sharing a Christmas card I created two of the new die sets from the November release ... the Parcel Pop-up die set and the presents from the Gift Pivot Panels die set. You can find Karen Burniston's assembly video for the Parcel Pop-up die set here.
I just love the new Parcel Pop-up die set and there are so many ways that this can be used. After playing with it for the first time, I had the idea of turning the parcel into a chimney with Santa coming down/up it. Of course I couldn't do anything else until this idea was out of my head.
Here is a quick video to see my card in action
I started by creating a top folding card from red cardstock which measured 5 inches x 4 3/4 inches.
I then created a night sky for the top panel by blending Faded Jeans & Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink over a panel of white cardstock. Once I had added the ink, I used some white paint to add splatters all over the background to represent snow.
For the base panel I turned this into the top of the roof. I used the scallop border from the Tropical Scenes die set to die cut some grey cardstock 4 times and some white cardstock that had double sided adhesive tape on the front. I added Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter to the adhesive. I then positioned the grey scallop panels evenly to another piece of grey cardstock and finally the glittered scallops.
I die cut the parcel mechanism from the Parcel Pop-up die set from red cardstock and added it to the inside of the card.
For the chimney, I die cut the largest square from the Parcel Pop-up die set, and used a brick stencil and red ink to add the brick pattern. I die cut the top of the box from white cardstock which had Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the front and cover the adhesive with glitter. I then adhered this to the top of the chimney..
I pulled out some really old stamps for Santa, the reindeer and Santa's sack ... these are probably 20/25 years old! I wanted a Santa that would pretty much fill the chimney and this is what I found in my stash, but there are many newer ones that would work available.
I added a speech bubble to Santa's and added the "Ho Ho Ho". The speech bubble is from the Square Spinner die set and the sentiment is from an Altenew stamp set.
I added some presents using the dies from the Gift Pivot Panels die set and added them to the left side of the card.
Finally I added the Merry Christmas to the card which is from the Word Set 3 - Holiday die set and two more presents above and below the word "Christmas".
I kept the front of the card simple, seeing the focus is on the inside of the card. I replicated the chimney, this time without Santa inside it. Instead I added a silhouette of Santa and his reindeers in the night sky above the chimney ... he is either flying away or flying to the chimney :).
I added the sentiment the bottom of the card which is from a Mama Elephant stamp set.
