A Christmas Pop-Up

930 ccm blk

It’s my turn this week to do a post for Die Cut Diva, a blog that shows you how to use all the fabulous products from Creative Cuts and More!

Hoping to get a little head start on my Christmas cards, I chose to do a Pop-Up card using one of the new sets available tomorrow at Our Daily Bread designs, Christmas Door.

930 ccm front

The card is Bazzill Canvas Wisteria, pre-cut and scored, ready to add your finishing touch! I colored Christmas Door with Copics, adding some Sakura white gel pen and Marvy Embossable markers for the berries. The berries are embossed with clear ep. 930 crp door930 snow

Then I added some Marvy Snow marker and puffed it with my heat tool. The cool (no pun intended!) snow at the bottom of the door is, Snow Mudd Puddles.

Mudd Puddles comes in a variety of colors and textures. It goes on “wet” but dries hard yet your cardstock etc. is still pliable! Adds neat texture!

That’s SEI Silver Valley dp, and for my door layer, I just colored some white cs with several Copics to match. I call it faux cardstock.

If you’re a regular follower, you’ll remember I had something special coming… and coming… AND COMING! Well, hold on to your hats! I’m hoping next week to have a super duper special GIVE-AWAY!

Stay tuned and thanks for stopping!

What a beautiful card, Dawn! Love the texture from the marker and the Mud Puddles. Your faux cardstock is always brilliant.

Oh my goodness Dawn! I love this card! I never would have thought to use a color like Wisteria on a Christmas card but this is fabulous! Love all the extra goodies you added and thanks for proving the details on all these little extras! Definitely going to check them out :)

Drool! This is one of those. Another one, where I marvel at your colouring, your realistic details, your "je ne sais quoi" & sigh with happy. You ROCK!
