Hello, my friends! Well the time is finally here… the debut challenge at the Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog! All of our challenges, year round, are Anything Christmas Goes, so if you love Christmas like we do, come over and play with us! I’m super excited to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #1 – August Anything Christmas Goes!
I made several of these fun cards last Christmas and they were such a hit, I’m making a few more this year! I used Karen Burniston’s Twist Panel Pop-Up Die Set to make these. I cannot tell you how much fun I had, lol! I didn’t want to stop! :D
The Christmas tree on the front was created with Your Next Stamp’s Create A Christmas Tree die set. The sentiment stamp is from Stampin’ Up.
Here is a shot of the card opening up. Pardon my thumb, lol!
And here it is fully open so you can see the twist panel design. I dug into my die stash and found the stocking. The snowman is from the main die set I used for the card. The letter ‘y’ is stamped and I drew white stitch lines on it. And the Christmas tree is from the die set I used on the front.
