I knew that the Fireplace Pop-up die would fit in a Mini Slimline card, so I decided to see how it would work in a Slimline card. My card measures 3 1/2 inches x 8 1/2 inches which is my preferred size for a Slimline card. I am happy how it turned out, however if I make another where I included the Christmas tree and fireplace I probably will go for a 4 inch size in height as I did have to trim the candles on the fireplace and the Christmas Tree, so that nothing showed out of the card when the card was closed.
I used woodgrain paper for the floor and red and green plaid for the walls, die cutting the papers using the largest rectangle die included in the Long Rectangles - Crosshatch die set.
For the fireplace you have the option to have either a fire or Santa's boots showing in the opening. As I already had adhered the place square behind the fireplace opening I opted for the fire. The fire guard, wood and wood holder are all from the Fireplace Extras 2 die set, all the other accessories decorating the fireplace are from the Fireplace Extras 1 die set.
For the Christmas tree, I used the Christmas Trees Pop Stand die set. As I wanted the tree to pop up and be 3D, I assembled it a little differently to how the instructions say. I have a tutorial on how I assembled my tree on previous blog post here. As mentioned above I did have to trim a little off the top of the tree to keep it all within the card when closed.
I used two of the rectangle dies included in the Long Rectangles - Crosshatch die set to create the "mat", this also serves as a place to add a sentiment. I selected a sentiment that referred to "From our Home to Yours", I have included this in the supply list below.
As the focus of this card is on the inside, I kept the front of the card fairly simple. I added the "Merry Christmas" sentiment using the Merry Christmas and Merry Christmas Shadow die sets.
I also added two trees using the centre portion of the large tree from the Christmas Trees Pop-Stand die set. I added red Glitter Dot Peel Off Stickers to all trees, both on the front and inside of my card.

I really like your card. I love the addition of the tree.
I am so amazed at the details that go into the Karen Burniston die sets and “embellishment” dies. I wish I could have them all! If I was just starting, these would probably be the only dies I would purchase! I keep putting them on my wish lists and have been increasing my stash! This Christmas set makes me think of our growing family and what cherished memories they make me think of. Love this!
Great ink details on the die cut pieces. Looks great. I adore slimline cards. HUGS! YOU ARE LOVED!
Fabulous Christmas card. Really like how you did the brick on the fireplace. Thank you for the tutorial of how you put the tree together.
