Karen Burniston July country christmas card...


Hello and Merry christmas, well merry christmas in 165 sleeps!

This months challenge was to create a holiday card with a country feel, using any Pop it Ups dies including (but not limited to) the brand new Farm 2 and Merry & Bright.

I chose to go big and created a 12 inch wide pop up card using the new christmas tree pop stand set and the holiday house. I lined up the trees and house  dies and marked where I should cut the stands.
 To make the card and die fit through the sizzix bigshot I trimmed 2 inches off the edge parallel to the fold.


 The new tree dies are fab and  I love the new co-ordinating stamp set. They also sit perfectly with the evergreen pivot die set and the holiday house.



The merry christmas is from Karens new pop it up merry christmas set and sits so nicely on the large tag from the tag pivot set.



I love Karens new stamp set with extracts from my favourite christmas poem by Clement Clarke Moore and was very excited to be able to use it in a card.


 I hope you like this Christmas card, don't forget to check out the the other ladies fad cards.
