Pop-Up Christmas Card - Holidays from the Heart Blog Hop

Are you as excited about Close to my Heart’s Holidays from the Heart Gift Guide as I am? I am thrilled to participate in another Blog Hop highlighting products from the Guide. I am loving all of these great new products, patterns, and stamps. Today I have a fun card to share with you using some of the new Washi Tape. I fell in love with this card and knew the minute I saw it that I wanted to recreate it using some of the products from the Gift Guide. Isn’t the pop-up gift inside cute?

Instead of using patterned paper on this card, I decided to us the new Sparkle and Shine Washi Tape. I thought it would be fun to use the little Santa from the Santa Claus stamp set and have him sitting on the edge of the pop-up present. I did a little paper piecing with Santa to get the different colors. I also used some Red and Silver Shimmer Trim and a little Color-Ready Seam Binding Ribbon.

The outside of the card is pretty simple. I wanted to incorporate more of the Washi Tape, so I adhered them at an angle on a separate piece of cardstock. I added a zip strip from one of the patterned papers also. After matting the final piece to a piece of Slate cardstock and popped it up with some 3-D Foam Tape. The “Merry Christmas” sentiment is also from the Santa Claus set. (I love that it coordinates with the bracket shape on the new Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.)
