Pop Up Christmas Card

Hi friends, Thank you for dropping in. I am still in the Christmas mood so sharing yet another Pop Up Christmas Card.This one has lots and lots of Cheery Lynn  dies and features my favorite Cheery Lynn  window die [ here are more projects with the Cheery Lynn  window die : Fancy Fold Card, Pop Up Window Card, Window Frame Card]
Pop Up Card
Origami Christmas tree
I am so in love with the Cheery Lynn  Christmas light swag die and the origami tree is perfect for the little lights which I cut out with glitter foam
Glitter Foam
I love to work with dies which can cut foam without effort and all the Cheery Lynn  dies cut foam like butter! The  little red flowers were cut with the BAF- 3 embellishment die and I added tiny golden "bindis"[ we Indian women use bindis to adorn our foreheads!] on the flower centers
Glitter Foam
The olive branch die is another favorite of mine as it has 2 leafy branches which face different directions[ you can see another project with the Cheery Lynn  olive branch here : Altered Tin Can]
Pop Up Card
Pop up New Year Card
The lacy mat below the Christmas tree is a Poppy Stamps die cut and the New Year is a Memory box die .Love how glitter foam can give so much dimension and sparkle to any project!
How I made the Pop Up Card
Pop up Card tutorial 
Scored an 8 x 7 inch card on the 7 inch side at 0.5 , 1 and 6.5 inches to give gluing tabs of 0.5 inches on each side.Later on mountain fold at each score line.
Pop up Card tutorial 
Since I use a Big Shot whose comfortable card cutting width is 6 inches, I folded up the score line on one side as shown so that my card can easily pass through the Big Shot to cut the Cheery Lynn  window die.

Pop up Card tutorial 
After cutting out one window I cut out another widow. Use a low tacky tape to stick the die to the card so that it doesn't move around when you pass it through your die cutting machine.
Another tip : To effortlessly cut the Cheery Lynn  window die use the Cheery Lynn  metal plate adapter.

Pop up Card tutorial 
I used a folded A 4 card for the base of my pop up card.Glued the 0.5 inch tab to the center fold to fit the fold snugly.
Pop up Card tutorial 
Hand cut snow from felt and added a Sizzix die cut Glitter foam Santa sleigh and reindeer [ Also seen in Christmas diorama]
Pop up Card tutorial 
After decorating the base card under the pop up windows, folded over the card at the 1 inch score line, applied glue to the 0.5 inch glue tab .When the whole card is folded closed, the glue tab will stick to the correct position on the other side of the card[ it is a bit confusing in words...but sorry  I didnt click pics of that step!]
Pop up Card tutorial 
Added simple box type pop up mechanism to the window layer to add a 2nd pop up layer of lamp posts and an origami tree.
I die cut the Cheery Lynn  Colonial lamp post in golden and black glitter foam to make mirror lamp posts.
