This is a Christmas card with a popup center. It is similar to the one Joan (Joan's Gardens) did for her workshop. You can see her card here as well as the other projects completed in her workshop this past weekend. The products I used for this card include: Sizzix Scallop Circle 3-D popup die; Snowman & Stocking die; Layered Christmas Tree die; and Holiday Lamppost. The Christmas Tree was embossed using the Sizzix "Beaded Ribbons" embossing folder. Cherry Lynn Victorian Picket Fence (B123); Christmas Light Swag (B131) and Pine Branches (B146) dies were also used. The sentiment is from JustRite "Deck the Halls". The embossing folder used for the background is the Sizzix Triad Leaves. VersaMark Ink was rubbed on the inside of the embossing folder, on the raised side, then run through embossing machine. Clear embossing powder was sprinkled over the background then heat set. Distressed stains were used to color it. Below the edge of the scallop popup, the Memory Box "Frosty Border" was added.
The Penny Black "Village Christmas" stamp was used for the front of the card. The Marianne Designs "Ice cycles" (LR0135) border was used at the top.
Tomorrow is the weekly challenge at Joan's Gardens. We have a fun little project for you and I hope you will come back and join us in the challenge.
All the products used on this card can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.
