12 Days of Christmas Trees – Day 4

Each day for 12 days, I will be showing card variations made with Karen Burniston’s Christmas Tree Pop-up die.  I recommend watching her assembly video before attempting to cut and assemble the pop-up tree.

For all of these cards I started with an A7 size card base (10 x 6 ½ inches), but because my die cutting machine can only accommodate 6-inch-wide pieces of paper, I had to trim the cards down to 10 x 6 inches.

Day 4 – Snowy Day

Snowy Day-Front

Inspiration for this card came on a very hot summer day.  I have had the blue snowy paper (Me & My BIG Idea CDCX-340) for many years. The little bit of sparkle to the dots of snow is fun and when doubled up forms a stiff card base.  The die-cut snow flakes come from a set from Dies by Chloe snowflakes die set From Die Cutting Essentials issue 45.

The snowy swirls on the tree came from an older Karen Burniston die set called Merry Christmas Pop-up from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  All of the snowflakes were cut from white card stock that had been adhered to a 6 x 6 inch sheet of double-sided tape before being die cut.

I added some glitter drops to the tree. and snowflakes for that extra sparkle that don’t show up well in the photos.
