What fun to be a child with a new toy or two to play with on Christmas morning. This card takes its inspiration from a BoBunny paper pad and matching die-cut pieces as well as a recent release of Karen Burniston’s Flip Frame Pop-up die set.
I found the Flip Frame Pop-Up easy to assemble, but strongly suggest practicing with scrap paper the gluing placement of the mechanism and frame before gluing with your good paper. (Here is the assembly video.)
I cut the flip frame from dark green mirror card and used some scrap green pattern pieces to hide the white side of the mechanism so that the mechanism strip blends into the background.
The cream-colored doily is for writing a personal message, but it does give the feel that the open card is a tabletop with a picture frame of a loved one.
The front is decorated with pictures cut from the paper pad and the little boy is a die-cut from the BoBunny set that is adhered with foam squares. A ribbon was the final dimensional element to tie the little girl to the boy and the opened gift box.
The card base is made entirely from two papers from the BoBunny paper pad. The inside sentiment and snowflake are from the coordinating die cuts set.
As is my style, I stamped the envelope flap with an older Kaisercraft stamp sentiment to set the mood for the card.
Hope this card makes you remember your childhood Christmases.
