Hello and welcome! Today's card features Karen Burniston's Parcel Pop-Up die set. I have only just purchased this set and once it came I knew I had to make a gift card pop-up card. With Christmas coming, both my kids have asked for gift cards, so I made this for my daughter.here. Karen's assembly videos are full of great tips when it comes to putting her pop-up dies together. Also, at the end she usually showcases different cards made by herself and the Design Team.

Christmas Gift Card Pop-Up!
So I got the idea for this style of card based on her video. This is a 5x5 card, cut from a light blue heavy weight cardstock. I made the front panel of this card clear so you could see inside it.
To make the flaps that hold the card closed, I used Karen Burniston's Flap & Closure. I added a white glitter washer for a festive look to the closure and used a light blue and white twine.
I used patterned paper from this super cute paper pack that I have used a lot this year. It's from Doodlebug Designs and it's called Winter Wonderland.
For the Polar Bears, I used BB Polar Bear Pals from My Favorite Things. I stamped the images using Pinkfresh Studios Detail Black ink on Neenah Classic Crest 110lb smooth white cardstock. I colored the Polar Bears using Copic markers and made the scarves keep in the same color theme as the gift box.
I die cut the smallest rectangle from Karen Burniston's Rectangle - Crosshatch die set and stamped the "I Come Bearing Gift" sentiment from the Polar Bear Pals stamp set.
I added the two Polar Bears to the front of the parcel using Lineco Neutral pH adhesive. I was going to add more Polar Bears to the clear front of the card, but they would have blocked the inner bears.
For the clear front of this card, I used a Merry Christmas sentiment from Lawn Fawn and a banner die from Lawn Fawn as well to create the scripty sentiment.
The end result is a super cute pop-up gift card holder that I think my daughter will just love, probably more what gift card she's going to get, but still.
This was my first time using this type of closure and at first I thought it would be complicated, but it was really simple and makes a great closure.
