Gingerbread House Pop 'n Swap!

Hello and welcome! Today's card features Karen Burniston's Pop 'n Swap. This Christmas card also uses Karen Burniston's Gingerbread Tiny House Add-On, Winter Charms and House & Fence Pop-Up

To make this card, I started with an A2 sized card and trimmed two inches from the front panel of the card. This will allow you to see the top pop-up. For the front of this card, I used a diagonal striped Christmas patterned paper and added a white glitter trim to the top and bottom using MFT Stitched Scallop Basic Edges

I die cut Karen Burniston's "Merry Christmas" and its shadow using white cardstock and red glitter cardstock and added that to the front panel of the card. I added a small Gingerbread man and a small Christmas tree. 

I wanted to keep the front of this card simple because the inside has so many details. For the back part of this card, I added the same white glitter trim, but I added the little red and white candies to the top of the card. These came from the Gingerbread Tiny House Add-On. 

For the top part of this pop-up, I made a big Gingerbread man. I added the same glitter white to the icing on the arms and legs. I used a white Gelly Pen to the face and buttons. I added some little glitter gum drops to add some details to the background the Gingerbread man sits on. 

 For the middle panel, I added some color to the background using some Distress Ink and added the house from the House and Fence Pop-Up. I made the house look like a Gingerbread house, adding white glitter cardstock for the roof, windows and door frame. I added some details to the house using a white Gelly Pen. I added some gum drops to the bottom of the house and also added the candy canes to the door. I added some trees to the background from the Winter Charms, which I added some details using Copic markers. 

For the back of the front panel, I added the scalloped piece that comes with the Pop 'n Swap die set. I added the candies to the corners and stamped the sentiment "From Our Home to Yours" from MFT Bitty Holiday Wishes

For the bottom pop-up, I made a Gingerbread girl and added the same gum drop candies and same white glitter icing trim on the body. 

I really love how cute this card turned out. I have been wanting to make a Gingerbread house with Karen's dies for a while now and finally got the chance! As always, thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
