'All is Calm' Christmas Pop-Up Card

Good morning friends

Yes, I have a Christmas card to share today. I make so many cards for the holidays it's hard to get them all posted in December. I'll be sprinkling Christmas card posts throughout the year to catch up.

The idea for this card came to me on the drive home from Arizona last November. I always keep a notebook handy on those long drives so can make notes when inspiration strikes. I can't remember what exactly sparked the idea, but I believe it was the plaid with stark white possibly on a billboard?

Here is a look at the inside:

I used the little pop-up that comes with the Basket/Barrel Pop-Up to animate the deer. It's such a handy little die, and allows you to add a Pop-Up (or more than one) anywhere along the fold.

Finally, a side view so you can see the pop-up a little better. Love love love that sweet deer and bunny.

The card was watermarked with my old blog, but then didn't get posted there. I'm choosing not to re-do the photos with the Painted Mountain Watermark.
