Hello, it’s Sue of the Dies R Us Design Team and today we are making a Christmas pop-up card with a Charlie Brown Christmas tree using Karen Burniston dies.
The chair die just fits in a 3 ½ inch x 6-inch mini slimline card. I started by cutting a 3 ½ inch by 11-inch piece of lightweight white card stock and folded it in half. Next, I cut piece of patterned background paper slightly larger than 3 ½ inch by 5 ½ inch and marked with a pencil where the chair arms connect with the card back on the patterned paper and cut slits so that the printed paper could be slid into place behind the chair. Using the same technique, I cut a piece of white glitter card stock 3 ½ inch by 6-inch for the ground, cutting slots for the chair feet. Glue both decorative papers to card base.
Cut chair, arms and seat from woodgrain paper. (I made my own woodgrain paper using a woodgrain stamp that I heat embossed with watermark ink and snow embossing powder.)
Fold woodgrain chair folds as shown on packaging. Glue wood grain chair to patterned paper chair matching up the seat, back, arms and leg pieces. Train the chair to pop-up by opening and closing card a few times.
Decorate card with the Holiday Charm set cutting off the charm loops. To make the tiny potted fir tree, use the pine branch from the charm set and the sand pail from the chair set.
I used Cosmic Shimer Fluffy Stuff to create the little piles of snow around the base of the chair. Read the directions on the bottle before using! (You need to be careful when you heat the fluffy stuff up so as not to burn your card with your heat tool.)
Last, I sprayed the inside of the card with a white spray paint for a soft snow fall effect.
For the card front I cut a 3 ½ inch by 5 ½ inch piece of white glitter card stock and glued it onto the card base. On the card back I cut a textured piece of white card stock 3 ½ inch by 6-inch and glued to the card base. Next taped the top seam of the front and back with a red plaid washi tape and continued down the back of the card for added decoration. On the front the Merry Christmas sentiment is an old die I’ve had in my stash for many years. The snowflakes are from the charm set. (I used a fine-tipped glue bottle for adding glue to the sentiment and snowflakes that made it so easy to glue without a big mess.)
The back of the mini slimline envelope is stamped with fir trees in a dark green ink.
Hope this fun card has put a smile on your face and provided some inspiration for your crafting. 😊
