Pop It Ups Christmas House and Sleigh Scene Card

This was another of those cards that just seem to design themselves - probably due to the beautiful products by Karen Burniston!
I used the Lucy Label die to create the pop-up base from blue polka dot card stock, then die cut some extra layers of patterned card stock with the Outdoor Edges little fir trees die, and fitted them round the pop-up area.
Most of the papers are from StudioLight's 'Scandinavian' 6x6 pad.

I assembled a house from the Holiday House die set and attached it to the small pop-up tab on the shelf part. I then made a sledge from the Sleigh Gift Card Holder die set, and filled it with gifts, also cut with dies in the same set. The snowflakes are also from the sleigh set (with a Glitter Dot in the centre of each).

At the foot of the card, I added some more patterned paper, ribbon, and a swirly border from the Banners and Borders die set.
I cut tags from the Tags Pivot Card set (extending the smaller tag by stopping the cutting pad short of the end of the tag die, and finishing it with scissors), and used a stamp from the Merry and Bright stamp set.
I also added two pieces of hand cut path - leading from the Holiday House, and on the back wall of the card.

 The outside of the card is pretty simple, with a couple more gifts, and patterned paper to cover the gap left by the pop-out part.

I also inked round the edges of the card, hills and house, with Tim Holtz distress ink and a blending tool.

The sleigh die set is part of Karen Burniston's lovely new 'Merry and Bright' collection from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
