December 9th- Pop up Christmas Trees

Hi, this is designer Carolina Garrido with a new Christmas feature for you. Today I'd like to show you two pop-up tree cards. I'm in love with pop-up cards, as there is always an element of surprise in them, so a couple of months ago I bought the Sizzix pop-up tree die, which I used for the card below:

I have to say those visions of mass-producing pop-up cards abandoned me promptly once I began putting this tree together, since it is not as easy as it looks, but it is still worth the effort. Have a look at this close-up, isn't it beautiful?

If, like me, you have had this die for months and haven't dared try it, or if you think this could be a good addition to your Christmas list, have a look at these video tutorials by Karen Burniston, who designed the die cut set. They are clear and detailed and will show you everything you need to know about them.

And if you want to have that pop-up element in your Christmas cards but your Christmas list is too crowded to add the Sizzix dies to it, here is the solution for you:

This is a very, very simple pop-up tree designed by Robert Sabuda that could be decorated to make any card stand out! You will find printables and detailed instructions here.

I hope you have enjoyed this feature as much as I enjoyed making these trees, and if you decide to make any of these, I'd love to see what you create! Leave a comment below so we can visit your blog/gallery and leave you some love.

 Merry Christmas to all of you
