Christmas in August with Karen Burniston's House and Fence Pop-Up.

 Hello and Welcome! Todays card features Karen Burniston's House and Fence Pop-Up. I wanted to create Santa's house up in the north pole, so I used the House and Fence Pop-Up to create this Christmas scene.

To make this card, I started with dark blue cardstock and cut to an A2 size card. I cut three rectangles using MFT A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX, in the largest size from white heavy weight cardstock. On two rectangles, I created a dark sky using Distress Oxide ink in Chipped Sapphire and Broken China and added white snow flakes using my Gelly Pen in size 10. I made a snow hill background using Karen Burniston's Nature Edges die set. 

For the front of the card, I made the sleigh using Karen Burniston's Sleigh Pop-Up.  I also used the Holiday Charms die and the Christmas Animals die set. I used my Copic markers to give the die cuts some dimension. I used a Christmas stamp from Simon Says Stamps I had and stamped and colored the North Pole sign. I didn't have a matching die so I fussy cut the sign out. 

For the inside of the card, I made the house look like a log/stone house. I die cut out the trees from the Winter Charms die set from green cardstock and added details using Copic markers and snow tips with my Gelly Pen in size 10. I created the polar bear and Santa and added them to the two tabs on the floor of the pop-up panel. I die cut the fence from red cardstock and added snow to it. If I make this pop-up again, I will double up on the cardstock for the fence, it wasn't very strong with the cardstock I used. 

For the house, I die it out from white cardstock and used Copic markers to add all the details. I used the wreaths that go on the fence to go on the windows and doors. I colored in the stone path way with Copics and added them to ground panel. The chimney is made from the door die. I cut it out from gray cardstock and the door frame from black cardstock and created the chimney. 

I die cut the candy canes and colored them with Copics as well and added them to the fence. I am so happy with how my Santa house came out. I hope you like it as much as I do! Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
