Blue Christmas

Another card that I taught in my pop-up card class was this free-standing pop-up. I am so in love with this style of card, and it is surprisingly easy to make. I used Bo Bunny Double Dot paper and plain white cardstock, which I embossed with the Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder. I also cut a large snowflake for the base, using a Cuttlebug die. Stamp is by Hero Arts, stamped with black Staz-On ink. I used Frosted Lace Stickles around the stamped image and on the snowflake die. I used some fun blue "eyelashes" on the front of the card. Enjoy!

Another view:

Here is what the card looks like when it's folded and ready for mailing:

Here is a close-up of the snowflake and the eyelashes. To make the snowflake more substantial, I first adhered my white cardstock onto a piece of thin chipboard, then I used the Cuttlebug die. That way I didn't have to worry about cutting out the cardstock and the chipboard separately and trying to match them up and adhere them after they were cut. I put a thin layer of Frosted Lace Stickles over the snowflake. I adhered it to the card so that it would stand up as the base folded down. I used Glossy Accents as my adhesive:

Here is a close-up of the embossing and the stamped image. I used Frosted Lace Stickles around the edge of the blue cardstock:
