Let’s Get Lit Reindeer Pop-Up Card…

Today I am sharing a pop-up card that I made using a super cute stamp set called “Let’s Get Lit” by Beth Duff Designs.

I started this card by stamping the deer and tree images onto some paper and scanning those into my Silhouette Cameo software.  Once all the images were scanned, I arranged them the way that I liked and grouped them together.  I used an offset of .075 so that I had an outline of the image that would allow for a white border once I adhered the pieces to it.  I used the pop-up feature that is in the software to create the pop-up for my image.  [For an explanation of how this feature works, see this post where I share the instructions and another cute card].

Since the image was already in my software and grouped how I wanted it, I printed it off so that I could color it using my Prismacolor Pencils. Once I finished coloring the image, I fussy cut it and adhered it to the pop-up.   Next, I stamped and fussy cut the ornaments and candy canes and adhered those to the trees.  I stamped my sentiment onto some white cardstock and punched it out with my circle punch.  Then I sponged around the edges with some Close To My Heart Cranberry ink and adhered that to the pop-up layer. I adhered the pop-up layer to the inside of my burgundy card base.

Once the inside was complete, it was time to start working on the front of my card.  I kept it pretty simple.

I printed off some digital paper and adhered that to the front of the card.  Then I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut a large burgundy star for the mat, and a smaller white star that I added the “may your Holiday be LIT” sentiment to.  This sentiment comes with the stamp set.  I adhered those together and then added a clear jewel to each point of the star and adhered it to the front of the card.

Here is another look at the inside just before I added the ornaments.  You can really see how the image pops out.

Get Creative Challenge #75

Get Creative November Challenge

It’s time for another Get Creative Challenge.  This month’s challenge is an “Anything But A Card” challenge.  I decided I’d make a Christmas tag and I’m using this cute trio of Caroling Snowmen from Paper Nest Dolls.  Aren’t they so adorable!  I colored this image with Prismacolor Pencils and a blender pen.  I popped it up to add some dimension to the tag.   I’m still learning how to color with pencils.  I’m enjoying the process, though.

There are 3 jingle bells strung on some red striped twine and hung across the top of the tag.  Some crystal stars were added for a little twinkle.  The sentiment is one that I had from an Art C (Michaels) Ornament Set.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look.  Don’t forget to head on over to the Get Creative Challenge to enter this month’s challenge.
