C4C463 Christmas Tree Pop-Up Card.

Good morning friends

It's Saturday and that means a new challenge at the Crazy4Challenges Blog. Our December hostess is Frances Byrne and this is her challenge:  

"It’s a Tremendous Time of the Year - It's December first and for me that means it is time to decorate the Christmas tree. For our challenge this week, create a card that features a tree. Your card can include a Christmas tree, pine branches of a Christmas tree or even a tree in a summer or winter setting."

Of course I had to make a Pop-Up card, and chose this patterned paper from my stash that has gold foiled bits printed on it. I loved this cheery bird section of the 12 x 12" sheet, so trimmed that down to fit on the front.

The Cake Trims is also a die set I get quite a lot of use out of - I cut a couple of them from gold foil card stock and added them to my card. The bow die is from the Sleigh Pop-Up, and I combined the 'hello' and 'Christmas' dies for the greeting on the front.

Inside I used the Christmas Tree Pop-UP and added the sweet deer from the new Christmas Animals.

This open holly die is by Stampin' Up and it makes such a nice embellishment for holiday cards. I inlay white glittered berries into the gold holly piece for even more sparkle and shine.

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd  love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C463.
