I cut the deer out of Naturals Ivory card stock and used alcohol markers to color their bodies. For the trees -- there are three different sizes -- I used Old Olive and Mossy Meadow card stock. This kit wasn't specifically designed for Christmas cards, so I wanted to add a winter feel to the layout. I used an Ice White Pearl Pen to add "snow" to the tree branches and falling snowflakes on the panels that fold down.
With the inside of the cards done, I wasn't sure what to do with the panels on the outside of the boxes. I didn't want to use more die-cut deer and trees, but I wanted something that still fit with the theme of the cards. I decided on just using a background stamp and adding a little tag.
When putting a pop-up card in an envelope, you can leave two flaps folded down so you see the elements inside the card, just without the dimension. But I think I'll leave them closed like this for mailing, so the inside will be a complete surprise for the recipients.
Thanks for stopping by!
