Christmas Accordion Pop Up Card

Christmas Accordion Pop Up Card 
           I love traditional Christmas images and Pop Up Cards and so made an Accordion Pop Up Card  with a sleigh , a snowman and Santa plus lot of other little traditional Christmas symbols!
Christmas Accordion Pop Up Card 
         I used Karen Burniston's Accordion Pop Up die to make the frame of my Pop Up Card and used an Inlay die cutting technique with the gorgeous PoppyStamps Emory Oval Frame die to frame my snowman

       I hardly ever make cards without flowers and so couldn't resist adding a heat embossed tiny vellum flower to felt leaves and some rhinestone "berries"!
Felt Crafts
      Cut a festive  ornament from silver glitter foam and dressed it up with a few rhinestone crystals.The paper I used on the frame of my card also has lots of tiny Christmas ornaments!
Foam ornament
 I used tumbled glass Distress Ink  on all the ovals and the frames to bring about a coherence of the different panels.
Distress Inks  
All the focal images used in this card are stickers...yes I love stickers!

           I used the same Poppy Stamps Emory Oval frame die to frame the Stocking only this time I made the center silver and the edges white.I love the sheer beauty and delicacy of this poppy stamps die!

         Another gorgeous rhinestone decked ornament on the other corner of the Accordion card
Glitter Foam Ornament
         And this is how the Accordion Card looks from above with the swinging pop up ovals and since I didnt add any bulky embellishments this card folds perfectly flat for mailing!

  45. Gorgeous! Love this die (forget to use it too), but it's brilliantly used in your hands. Love the background paper on the folds, and what a canvas to show all the wonderfully traditional Christmas motifs on the ovals. Also liked the touch of texture created with the felt holly leaves, with the gleam of the berries, and the sparkle of the ornament. Again, more gleam with the tiny rhinestone at the top of the ornament. Just lovely and so very detailed. TFS
