Woven Basket Christmas Pop-Up Card

 Hello and welcome! Today's card features Karen Burniston's Woven Basket Box Card Pop-Up. I had this idea to make a Christmas card using the Woven Basket Box dies along with everything Christmas! 

For this card I started with a wood grain patterned paper and added a striped patterned paper to match. I cut out four grass inserts and trimmed off the grass. Then I measured the pieces and cut out a larger piece of white cardstock and with the Natures Edges snow hill die, made snow hills to add to the inside of the box card. 

From there, I set the box card aside and started making all the little things I wanted to put in the box card. I die cut two trees from the Christmas Trees Pop Stand die set and added them to the back of the card. Then I die cut three trees using the tree die in the Winter Charms set. 

I wanted to add Santa, so I used the Gnome and Santa set and die cut all the pieces to make this super cute Santa. I then die cut the pieces to make the reindeer from the Christmas Animals set. 

I added the stocking filled with a cuddly teddy bear and a candy cane using the Holiday Charms and Winter Charms die sets. 

I wanted to add some gifts, so I used the gift boxes that come with the Sleigh Pop-Up. I then die cut the sentiment "Happy Holiday" from Word Set 3 - Holiday, using a glitter red and green cardstock. 

For some added detail, I used the branch and berries that come with the Woven Basket Box die set. I added some glossy accents to the berries and once dry, I added some shine lines with a white Gelly Pen. 

On the back of the card, I added a small square of white cardstock, die cut from the Square - Crosshatch set, so the sender has a place to write a message to the recipient. 

This may be a small card, but it is full of so many details that it is sure to put a smile on anyone's face. I am so pleased with how this turned out, that Santa just makes me smile. 

Also, I made a small 5-minute video for you my Crafty friends on how I color the trees to give them dimension and details! It's my first video and I had to hold my camera with one hand while coloring with the other, so bear with me while I navigate getting use to filming! Lol. Click here to watch the video.

I hope you find it helpful. As always, thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
