Holiday Pop Up Box Card

Today I’m sharing this snowy holiday pop up box card and lots, lots more.  Several of the dies I used on my card are part of the new Rubbernecker Stamps die release that are available on the site today.  Scroll down below my first picture to see links to all the new dies.  I have had a great time this past week playing with these new dies and can’t wait to show you what I’ve come up with.

For my holiday pop up box card I used the Winter Lamp Post, Park Bench, Evergreen Trees, Cardinals, Wrought Iron Fence, Deckle Hills, Greenery #2, Tiny Leaves and Splatter Background.

Assemble the 3D Pop Up Box Base

  • Cut the layering pieces.  The designer paper I used is from the Carta Bella Snow Much Fun collection and the snow sky layers were made using  Splatter Background and blue cardstock.
  •  2   5 5/8″ x 3 5/8″ layers
  •  2   3 5/8″ x 2 3/4″ layers
  •  4   1 7/8″ x 2 3/4″ layers
  • Attach the paper layers to the inside and outside card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Apply 1/2″ double stick tape to the tab, line it up and secure the box closed.
  • Cut the white snow sections to fit the tabs included in the kit and attach them with ATG adhesive.
  • Apply 1/2″ double stick tape to the tabs on both sides and insert them inside the box.
  • Note:  I use the Be Creative double stick tape on the tabs because it is much stronger than the ATG adhesive.  I like to use the ATG adhesive on layering paper because it is fast and easy.

The Evergreen Trees

  • Cut the evergreen trees using green cardstock.
  • Stamp each tree using the Splatter Background and white pigment ink.
  • Apply white embossing powder to the trees and heat emboss with your heat gun.
  • Attach the trees along the back box wall using mounting tape.
  • Tuck additional trees in between the snow layers and attach them using glossy accents.

The Lamp Posts and Bench

  • Use black cardstock to cut six (6) lamp posts and three (3) benches.
  • Create strength for each lamp post by attaching three layers together using Connect Glue. 
  • Attach the three benches together using Connect glue. 
  • Note:  I knew it would be tricky getting the tall lamp posts to stand and stay stable so that is the reason I layered them as well as the bench.
  • Attach the snowy white accessory pieces and holly decorations to the lamps using Connect Glue.
  • Apply white Gesso paint to the bench using a small brush to snow.
  • Apply glossy accents to the bottom portion of the lamp posts and the legs of the bench and attach them to the white snow layer.

The Wrought Iron Fence and Snow Layers

  • Cut white snow layers using white cardstock and fence sections using black cardstock.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the snow layers and attach the fence sections.
  • Attach the snow layers and fence sections to the box flaps using double stick tape.
  • Tuck trees in behind the snow layers and attach using mounting tape.
  • Attach greenery branches behind the snow layers and fence sections and attach using glossy accents.
  • Finish the card by adding red bows and cardinals.

Christmas Tree Window Card

Today I’m sharing a fun Christmas tree window card with a kitty cat sitting on the sill contemplating havoc on the tree.  I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Window 4 Pane, Greenery #1, Wrought Iron Fence, Lamp Post w/ Accessories, Nested Deckle Rectangle, Tiny Leaves, Cats and Small Star Outline

Come over to my my blog to see how I made this christmas tree window card.

The Christmas Tree

  • Cut several sections of the greenery and cut the branches apart.
  • Hand cut a slim triangle tree base using green cardstock.
  • Begin attaching single branches to the top of the tree base using glossy accents and work your way down adding branches until the tree is complete.  Check out my Christmas Tree Step by Step Tutorial to see photos and details of how I made my tree.
  • Punch out several 1/8″ red circles and attach them to the tree using glossy accents.
  • Attach a gold star and red bow to the top of the tree using glossy accents.
  • Apply red stickles to the red circles and set aside to dray.

The Window

  • Cut the window using white cardstock.
  • Use the window as a template to draw cut lines on the card base.
  • Cut the window opening opening on the scored card base using a craft knife.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the window and attach it over the opening on the scored card base.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape on the back of the scored card base and set aside.

Come over to my my blog to see how I made this pretty christmas tree window card.

Assemble the Card

  • Apply double stick tape to the tree base and attach it to the back of the scored card base.
  • Cut a piece of decorative paper and attach it to the card base using double stick tape.
  • Attach the scored window base to the card base.
  • Create the snow base by cutting a nested deckle rectangle and cutting off one side.  Note:  I used an edge of a deckle rectangle instead of the Deckle Hills because I wanted a straighter edge along the snow base.
  • Use black cardstock to cut the fence and attach it to the back of the snow layer using double stick tape.
  • Cut the lamps using black cardstock and cut yellow cardstock to fit behind.  Attach the lamps to the card base with pieces of mounting tape.
  • Apply a strip of mounting tape to the back of the snow layer and attach it to the card base.

Decorate the Fence and Lamps

  • Cut tiny leaves and attach to the top of the lamps using glossy accents.
  • Attach tiny red circles to the lamps using glossy accents and then apply red stickles to the circles to add sparkle.
  • Create the evergreen decoration by attaching greenery branches to the fence using glossy accents.
  • Attach a multi loop red bow to the evergreen using glue dots.  Check out my Multi Loop Bow Tutorial to see how I made my bow.
  • Finish the card by coloring a cat and tucking it in the window and attach using glossy accents.

Clean and Simple Christmas Wreath Card

My project today is a clean and simple Christmas wreath card made using the Rubbernecker Stamps Wreath with Berries and Blessed Christmas sentiment.  I love the crisp pine wreath image with the holly leaves and berries.  I hope you aren’t shocked that there is no die cut image on this card.  LOL! 

Come over to my blog to see how I made this Christmas wreath card.

The Wreath

  • Secure a 4.50″ square piece of hot press watercolor paper and the stamp in the MISTI.
  • Apply Shady Lane Versafine Clair ink to the stamp and stamp the image.  Note: VersaFine Clair’s innovative formulation provides the perfect image to use with watercolor paints or water based markers.
  • Ink up the stamp again if necessary and stamp the image a second time.   Note:  I love using my MISTI to stamp my images.  I didn’t press quite hard enough on my first attempt and didn’t get full coverage of the image.  I was easily able to apply more ink and stamp a second time for a perfect image.

Watercolor the Wreath

  • Use a green marker to fill in the delicate pine needles.
  • Watercolor the berries and holly leaves using a small brush and Distress Ink reinkers.
    • Barn Door and Fired Brick for the berries.
    • Squeezed Lemonade and Peeled Paint for the leaves.

Come over to my blog to see how I made this pretty Christmas wreath card.

Assemble the Card

  • Secure the sentiment image and 1/2″ strip of cardstock in the MISTI.
  • Mask off the bottom portion of the sentiment using masking tape.
  • Remove mask and apply Shady Lane ink and stamp the sentiment.
  • Score two score lines 1/8″ apart on both sides of the sentiment, fold at the score lines to create the banner and attach it to the wreath base using double stick tape.
  • Trim off the banner ends on both sides of the wreath base.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the wreath base and attach it to the green card base.
  • Finish by attaching a red multi loop bow to the card base using glue dots.
