Merry Christmas... in March!

I'm a bit late in the day again folks but hope you manage to find me once you guys awake! 

Today I have been continuing with the pop-up box cards, although this time I decided to make a couple of Christmas ones ready for the end of the year! I'm going on the theory that if I make a couple a month then I won't have as many to do come winter time!

The first card I made using kraft card as the base of the box and covered with Christmas themed papers from my stash. 

I cut more flowers from matching paper using the same dies as mentioned in yesterday's blog post. I also cut more flourishes and tags using the same dies as yesterday. 

I drew a simple Christmas tree freehand and cut several of these in a couple of different sizes from 2 shades of green card stock. I embossed a simple dot design onto some of them using an embossing folder. 

Anyway, that's it for this blog post! I don't want to make it too picture heavy so pop back to the home page and check out today's other blog post about another Christmas themed pop-up box card, this time snowflakes and snowmen dominate! 

I would like to finish with a quote from one of my favourite YouTubers, Kelly Donovan. This simple statement always resonates with me each time Kelly finishes one of her wonderful videos with it. 

"Be kind to each other, you never know what battles someone is fighting"

I spend a lot of time on YouTube, sometimes searching for special topics but often I like to have my favourite you tubers keeping me company while I craft. So as my way of given back to them I am going to write a brief blog post soon giving a shout out to these wonderful people who let us into their craft rooms and their lives! So keep an eye out for that soon.
