My card today uses three of the new die sets being released ... Dog Tiny House Add-Ons; Bam Box Pop-up and Hexagon - Crosshatch die sets.

I have created a Slimline Card with a 3/4 Front. To create my card I cut two pieces of red cardstock for the base. The back measures 3 5/8 inches x 8 5/8 inches. The front is 3 5/8 inches x 6 inches, I then scored along the long side of this panel at 1/2 inch to adhere this panel to the back panel. Once I had the base of my card all done, I was then able to add my layers. As this is a Christmas card, I decided to bling it up a little by adding holographic card for the layer under the patterned papers.

Here is a quick video to see my card in action.

For the dog house I used the new Dog Tiny House Add-On die set with the Tiny House Pop-up die set. The new add on set comes with the walls for the dog house, a dog, bones, a paw print, a ball, collar and a dog. The walls and paw print have the stamp feature on them which means you can ink up the die to add the colour as you die cut.

Although this die set does come with a dog, as I had to make a pug themed Christmas card for my daughter to give to her vet, I decided to use pugs on this card. The pugs in this set are from an older Clearly Besotted Bah Hum-Pug! stamp set and as there were already a few pugs stamps, cut and coloured in the back of the stamp set and went with three of those. 

For the two pugs not attached to the dog house, I used the pop-up included in the new Bam Box Pop-up die set to pop them up. When my card is. closed the two pugs adhered to the Bam Boxes are on top of each other adding bulk to that area, next time I make this type of card I will make sure that I adhere them in different positions. The Bam Box folds flat for closing and pops up when you open the card.

I used the two of the labels included in the Bam Box Pop-up die set to add the two labels on the inside of the card. One has a stamped sentiment from an older pug themed stamp set, the other is blank for the sender to write a personal message.

As this card has three pop ups and is a little bulky, I needed a way to keep the card closed when needed. So I created a belly band. I used the new Hexagons -  Crosshatch die set for the layering panels and then added a pug image using Crafter's Companion's Bah! 
Humbug! stamp set.

Here is one last look at my card when it is open with the belly band sitting on the right side of the card.
