If you are like me and you enjoy making
your own Christmas cards,
then you know that you have to get a head start.
I am a fan of pop-up cards.
I have not gotten into elaborate pop-ups, but I do have fun
with simple ones. I hope you enjoy this card.
This is a photo of the materials I used.
The most important is the cut-out angel, because
it is my pop-up feature.
It can be anything you want it to be . . .
as long as you can fold it into a 45 degree angle.
Then fold it in half and proceed to crease it
again into a 45 degree angle.
On my angel I had to be careful not to include her head in my fold.
(You do not need this scoring tool, you can fold it by hand.
I just have it, so i used it)
The little vintage girl on the outside of my card comes from
The Graphics Fairy
The skirt is made by cutting petals of sheer fabric
and using the candle method of curling the fabric.
This idea I got from Carol at The Polka Dot Closet.
Here is a link to her tutorial.
I hope that you have as much fun as I do making your own cards.
I believe that my friends and family enjoy the homemade goodness
and the love that goes into these cards.
Have a wonderful day . . .
Have a little fun . . .
Go into your craft area and make something
I love you all,
