Celebrate the Season with Karen Burniston's Christmas Trees Pop Stand

 Hello and welcome! Today's card features Karen Burniston's Christmas Trees Pop Stand and Winter Animals dies. The Christmas Trees Pop Stand is a die set that I've had for many years, and it's sat in the back of my Karen Burniston die collection almost forgotten about, but I pulled it out to make a very cute Christmas card today. 

For this card, I wanted to include 3 trees to pop up, so I went with a 5 x 7 sized card. I also have been into the vintage look with Christmas cards and continued that with this card by adding some Distress Ink in Vintage Photo to the edges of the papers I chose. 

I die cut the trees from different green patterned papers. I die cut the big frame with the stitched look from a solid dark green cardstock. I added brown cardstock stocks to the bottom of the trees. 

I die cut the ornaments from some scrap patterned paper I had. I added a gold star to the stop of the center tree.
I die cut the word "Merry" from Karen Burniston's Merry Christmas word die twice from red cardstock and once from red glitter cardstock. Then I glued all the pieces together to give the word some dimension. 

I stamped the sentiment "Have Yourself a" and "Little Christmas" from My Favorite Things Bitty Holiday Wishes on to heavy weight black cardstock using VersaMark ink. I then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. 

I die cut a red oval using Karen Burniston's Oval - Crosshatch dies and cut an off-white oval as well to give the sender a place to write a personal sentiment.

I then wanted to add some animals to give it a forest feel. I used the Bear and Hedgehog from the Winter Animals dies and added them beside the ovals.

For the front of the card, I cut out the word Celebrate using Karen Burniston's Celebrate word die. Then stamped the sentiment "The Season" from the MFT Bitty Holiday Wishes. 

I added trees in the same patterned cardstock as the inside of the card, using the trees that are the extra pieces when you die cut the tree frame for the pop-up trees inside the card. 

I kept the front of the card simple, since all the fun part of the card is on the inside. 

I am very pleased with how this card came out. I just love the little animals; they are so darn cute! I especially love the trees!
