Fireplace Pop-Up and Holiday House Card

 Hello and welcome! Today's card features Karen Burniston's Fireplace Pop-Up and Holiday House die sets. Since the Fireplace Pop-Up came out, I've only used it once to make my "Haunted Mansion" Fireplace Pop-Up card. Now with Christmas just around the corner, I am making cards for family and decided to make a Christmas card using the Fireplace Pop-Up. 

For this card, I started with an A2 sized card using a smooth red cardstock. One thing I love about using Karen's dies is I can usually go through my scrap cardstock to die cut the small pieces. Well this time I was able to use scraps for the wallpaper background and floor. I cut a piece for the wall trim using a dark brown cardstock. 

For the fireplace, I used a light gray cardstock and added some dimension using Distress Oxide ink in Black Soot around the edges of the fireplace. I was going to make the Santa boots come out of the fireplace, but I really wanted to add a fire and no one wants to set Santa on fire (lol) so I decided to scrap the Santa boots and went with a fire. I die cut it out of white cardstock and colored it with Copic markers. I used Karen Burniston's Fireplace Extras 1 and Fireplace Extras 2 to create all the added elements, such as the garland on the mantel, the wreath and the candles. I used scrap cardstock for all the small pieces. 

I used a piece of cardstock with little pictures of Santa and Frosty to create the photos on the wall of this room. For the "rug" I used Karen Burniston's Oval - Crosshatch dies. 

For the front of this card, I used Lawn Fawns Stitched Ripple Backdrop die and a light blue cardstock. Then I used scrap pieces of cardstock to make the holiday house. I also used Karen Burniston's Outdoor Scene die to make the tree/snow background. I used my Copic markers to color the trees in the background. 

I used My Favorite Things Bitty Holiday Wishes to stamp the sentiment on the front of the card. 

I just love how the fireplace came out. I find it easy to put together and with all the little extras, you can make your fireplace pop-up just POP! 

If I don't post anything later this week, I want to take this time to wish each and everyone of you a wonderful holiday season, Merry Christmas and all the best for 2023. Thank you so much for visiting my blog and as always Happy Crafting!
