Hey everybody! Another Monday has rolled around and I hope you had a great weekend! Leslie here, sharing a fun pop-up presents Christmas card! I’m a fun fold fanatic and this one can be tailored to any occasion with the use of different patterned papers on the presents! I used Basis Green, Basis Red, Bright Gold Foil and Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock which I paired with some digital Christmas papers in my stash.
Cut Card Base and Layers
I cut a standard A2 size side-folding card base and a layering panel and embellishing strip for the front from Basis Green. Next, I cut a layering panel for the front from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White along with narrow strips for the presents from Bright Gold Foil. Finally, I cut layering panels for the front and pieces for the presents from Basis Red and digital Christmas papers.
Prepare Pop-Up Layer
I cut the pop-up layer for the inside from Solar White and scored it down the middle. I made four horizontal cuts and six vertical score lines for the presents, and then folded the layer in half creating mountain folds on the vertical score lines.
Adhere Layers and Wrap Presents
I adhered the digital Christmas paper layers and the green and white layers for the front. Next, I adhered the red cardstock and digital Christmas papers to the presents on the inside and those for the front, embellishing them with the gold foil strips and snowflake red bling.
Next, I added a stamped sentiment to the front and inside. I cut the inside sentiment with a postage stamp edge die and layered it on green cardstock.
I adhered the panels to the front and inside of the card base. Next, I added more snowflake red bling to complete the card.
