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.
