Merry Christmas Surprise Pop Up Card

I have just finished making my first surprise pop up card - visit Splitcoaststampers for some instructions on how to make one of these cards.

Here is a photo of the card closed and then open showing its surprise!

For the card, I used Kraft card stock from Franchville (Spotlight), then I covered the actual card with a green paper from Silly Season by KaiserCraft. The Merry Christmas sentiment is also from Silly Season by KaiserCraft. Red and white Baker's yarn is from KoKoVanillaDesigns.
Christmas Elf Luka from La-La Land Crafts is digitally printed on X-Press It card from Lime Tart and then coloured with Copics pens.
I used the following colours:

  • skin: E00, E11
  • hair: E31, E33, E35
  • hat and clothes: R20, R22, R27, YG00, YG03, YG17, YR16 (buckle), clear spica pen
  • presents: B00, B02, B05, R20, R22, R27, YG00, YG03, YG17
  • background: BG000
Luka is attached to the card with pop up adhesive dots for dimension.
The card is blank inside, I'll need to make an envelope for it.

I will link this to the La-La Land Craft Customer Gallery and also submit this to a new challenge: Addicted to Stamps and More - ATSM Challenge #49 - CAS and a challenge from a site I have participated in before - Paper Makeup Stamps: Digi Makeover Challenge #92 - Kraft.
