Pop Up Christmas Tree Card

Happy Monday to you all! It's an exciting day here in Norfolk as we might actually see the sun today (since I don't think we've seen it since Wednesday of last week). Hopefully, that will make my Monday just a tad bit easier (there is just something about Monday's that I just don't like). Anyway, I wanted to share with you the card we made this past weekend at the Bold Brights and Rich Regals Stamp Clubs using the Pop Up Christmas Tree! Yes, I'm partial and I think this is just way too cool!!! I know that the people who receive it will be so impressed!

The actual size of the card folded is 6" x 6". You can make the square smaller, probably about a 5" x 5" size. You can also mail this but you will have to pay extra postage (which is definitely worth it). The words on the front where colored with the Stampin' Write Markers - Real Red and Garden Green.

Oh ... now doesn't the inside of this card just impress you!!! All we did was put the tree together and insert it in the middle of the card. On the Very Vanilla part of the card, we stamped the words using Garden Green and for the embellishment, we colored the image in with the Stampin' Write Markers - Real Red and Garden Green again.

I won't kid you, there were some interesting comments from the club members this weekend when we put the tree together. When I put my first tree together, there was definitely a learning curve. But when I made my second, then third one, I found it much easier. It's just figuring out how everything interlocks!! You could even cut out a bunch of them, then make them while you watch your favorite television show (or watch television with your husband while he watches his favorite television show - I call this "bonding time with spouse").

Enjoy your Monday and if you have a chance, hop on over to and see what you can create with the design sketch. I haven't had a chance to play in over a month (missing it terribly), but I think of it every Monday!!!
