Good morning and a very Happy Monday to you.
I hope you have had a very crafty and productive weekend. I have been very busy with my monthly card class as well as making some lovely notes and pressies for my customers and virtual club members. I am particularly proud of my virtual club gifts this month. I will be sharing those little lovelies with you later in the week.
To celebrate the upcoming festive season I have a whole week of lovely craftiness to share with you every morning this week. My first crafty share is this pop up Angel box card.
I am very partial to punch art and creating little characters using my punches. I had seen a few festive box cards across the blogosphere and I'd also seen a few variations of punch art Angels. I decided to have a go at combining the two.
I just love the festiveness of this little card (which folds down flat for easy posting- although with the pearl embellishments I think it'd be a large letter rate).
I started with a standard A4 base of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I scored along the long side at 7cm, 14cm, 21cm and 28cm. I then turned and scored at 7cm (and then cut at 15cm). This gives you your basic box shape. You use the scrap piece of card to create the little Z shape tabs that stick inside your box for your pop ups to stick to. For more explanation I used this video by the lovely Monica to help put my base together.
For the decorative layers I used Brushed Gold cardstock and the Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Stack.
My Angels were created using my 1 3/4" and 1 1/4" Circle Punches for the Champagne Glimmer halo (and for the face punched from Very Vanilla). I used the Decorative Label Punch for the body and a retired butterfly die for the Angel wings.
The one bit of stamping on this card was the sentiment taken from The Newborn King stamp set. I used this as the card looked overall like a choir of Angels singing. So I wanted the sentiment to reflect a Christmas carol.
