Edwin with presents


Hi everyone, hope you're having a good week and nearly ready for Christmas :)! I've had a go at a free standing pop up card which is a card style I haven't tried before and very much enjoyed. Of course I forgot to take a photo of the card folded down :) but here are a couple of extra photographs and one shows how it looks from the side.





Edwin is coloured with distress inks and cut out with a nestabilities die then mounted on the pop up portion of the card. The box shaped piece is stamped with the Magnolia Yuletide sentiment stamp and I cut the borders with a DooHickey lace die then added another die cut Magnolia Merry Christmas sentiment to the front, the sentimets were stamped with Distress Ink in Iced Spruce. I added some punched holly leaves, folded ribbon and Magnolia crystal stamps in front of the images and this style of card gives a little ledge at the front which is perfect for flowers etc. 

I'm entering my card into:
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Don't look at the light
The Pink Elephant - Snowflakes and sparkle
ABC Christmas Challenge - Yippee, Christmas is almost here
Winter Wonderland - Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Hi Chris!
This is my favourite Edwin stamp.
Your colouring is exceptional once again. I have looked at it for ages.
The colours are beautiful. I think this must be one of the new distress ink colours!! I love it a lot.
Blessed Christmas to you Chris.
