Popping Presents Collage

 Do you need a fun way to send your Christmas presents in the mail? Here is a card that proves you are not lying when you tell someone that their presents are in the mail. Here is a peek at the front and inside of the card. What do you think?

   Wishing You Cheer
   More Merry Messages
   Merry & Bright Rub-Ons

   Cherry Cobbler A-2
   Merry Moments DSP 1-3/4 x 5-1/2, Scraps
   Whisper White 8 x 5 

   Archival Basic Black

   Pop-Up Card

   Gold Ribbon
   Frosted Sequins
   Scoring Tool
   Fast Fuse

First, I scored and folded my Whisper White panel at 4".

I then lined the folded edge on the top of my trimmer and cut at:
   1" cut down to 1-1/2
   2" cut down to 1-1/2
   3" cut down to 1-1/4
   4" cut down to 1

Then turn the paper so the fold is on the left and:
   at 1" score between 1 to 2
   at 1-1/4" score between 2 to 3
   at 1-1/2" score between 3 to 4

Fold the score lines and push the flaps inward. These are the presents. Measurements to decorate with patterned paper are:
   Top Present: 1 x 2
   Middle Present 1 x 2-1/2
   Bottom Present 1 x 3

I then adhered this onto the inside of the Cherry Cobbler card base.

I then decorated the front of my card and stamped the inside.

The tutorial for this technique can be found HERE.

  1. I really want to try this fold. I recently did the step fold and love how that came out. Now you are inspiring me to want to try this one. Gorgeous card.

    1. Thank you, Lisa. I thought it would be difficult, but it was quite easy. I plan to make several more of these for Christmas. Thanks for stopping by here.

    1. Thanks, Fonda. It definitely is. I have to make Christmas cards all year long. Glad to read that you are doing better. My condolences to you.
