Christmas Gift Card Pop-Up!

 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.

As this was my first time using this die set, I did what I always do and looked up the assembly video from Karen Burniston, which you can view by clicking 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. 

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 Pop-Up gift box, I added some polka dot paper from the same pack and added a bow and ribbon using metallic blue cardstock. 

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. 

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit my blog today. I hope you find some crafty inspiration! Happy Crafting!
