Mini Slimline Card using Karen Burniston's Rockin' Rectangle!

 Hello and welcome! Today's card features Karen Burniston's Rockin' Rectangle Pop-Up, Word Set 3 - Holiday and Holiday Charms. Usually when I come up with an idea for a pop-up card, I think about the inside first, but with this card, I focused on the outside and then decided to make the inside a pop-up. I wanted to use the ornaments from the Holiday Charms die set and have them hanging from the branch that is also part of the Holiday Charms die set. 

This card is a Mini Slimline card (3.5x6) I cut using red cardstock. I used Karen Burniston's Short Rectangles - Crosshatch and die cut a smaller piece for the front using some scrap white sparkle cardstock. I die cut a smaller short rectangle out of heavy weight smooth white cardstock and blended the background with Distress Oxide ink in Broken China and Chipped Sapphire. 

I die cut the branches and ornaments from heavy weight smooth white cardstock and colored them in with Copic markers. I die cut the tops of the ornaments with mirrored silver cardstock. 

I die cut the Happy Holidays sentiment twice from green cardstock and once from a mirrored green cardstock. 

Once I added everything to the front, I made snowflakes using my Gelly Pen in size 10. 



The Rockin' Rectangle die set will not fit properly in a mini slim line card, so I cut 3/4 in off the long arm and glued it back on to the remaining tab (see below for how I did this). 

With the short rectangles in the largest die, I cut two pieces from the background cardstock. I die cut a smaller white piece for a place to write a sentiment or sign your name. 

I cut a small piece of green cardstock and stamped and embossed the "have yourself a merry little Christmas" sentiment and added it to the now smaller arm of the mechanism. 

I used Lawn Fawn's Christmas Dreams stamp set to create the Christmas tree and gifts on the pop out rectangle. 



Thank you so much for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!
