Pop Up O Christmas Tree

When I first saw this die, I just had to have it. I actually had to take some cards, bookmarks and jewelry to work to sell, in order to be able to afford it. It is NOT cheap. Today I had three friends come over to help me figure out how the tree worked. I am so pleased.  Thanks for checking it out!

This is the front of the card. The word stamp is from Inkadinkado. I got it at Tuesday Morning for just $.99.  The tree border was done with a EK punch. I chose the colors from some Christmas papers I had from last year as part of one of those ultimate scrapbook sets.

Here is the card open. It is so cool that I can do such a complicated pop up card.  The tree skirt was done with a Outline Stamp. I colored it with colored pencils but the paper itself was also printed. This was part fo the same ultimate scrapbook set.

This is a close-up of the corner designed for the sender to leave a message. The curls are bits of left over paper from the flourish die cuts I used on the tree.  Just couldn't trow them out and I like the detail.  The snowflales were a punch. I have had it a long time and don't know who makes it.

The tree is decorated with punched circles, tiny stars that are part of a border punch, and flourishes. The flourish die is from Quickutz. The "snow" is a Stickler. I used a little of that on the front of the card above the trees.

I did watch this viseo to help me figure out putting the die cuts together. You can see it here.  I also got some inspiration at I Am Not Left Handed. You should check out her pop up cards.  Thanks for stoping by!Let me know what you think,
