Today I'm sharing a couple of card ideas on using the incredible new Pull-tab Pop Up Tree, Stamp Set, and Pull-tab Tree Pop-up Add On. These are amazing y'all. You can create some really fantastic holiday scenes and interactive designs with these great dies!
For my first tree opted to incorporate the Pull-tab Tree Pop-up Add On with the Pull-tab Pop Up Tree for even more of a "wow" factor! The Hello Pumpkin mice and stars from the Yippee Set round out this sweet Christmas scene.
The background of my card was inked the Mermaid Lagoon and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks, leaving the bottom of the panel white for "snow". Water from a Distress Sprayer was spritzed over the panel and blotted dry with a paper towel to give the illusion of falling snow.
The Pull-tab Pop Up Tree and Pull-tab Tree Pop-up Add On elements were all die cut from white cardstock (the star was die cut from Gold Glitter Cardstock and the circle was die cut from Lawn Fawn Chili Pepper Cardstock). The tree pieces were inked with Crushed Olive and Forest Moss Distress Inks and spritzed with water from a Distress Sprayer for a snowy "outdoors" look. The pull tabs were left white.
The tree was assembled according to the video tutorial directions and adhered to the card base background.
A sentiment from the Christmas Tree Stamp Set was stamped in the upper right corner of the card with clear embossing ink and embossed with white embossing powder.
The mice images from the Hello Pumpkin Stamp Set and the stars from the Yippee Stamp Set were stamped on smooth white cardstock with Hero Arts Intense Black Ink, colored in with Copic Markers, die cut with the coordinating dies, and adhered to the card as shown. The stars were finished with a layer of Nuvo Crystal Drops in White Blizzard and Nuvo Crystal Drops in Red Berry were added to the tree for "ornaments" to finish the card.
For my second tree opted to showcase how amazing the Pull-tab Pop Up Tree is when paired with the Christmas Tree Stamp Set. The adorable kid images and stars from the Yippee Stamp Set pair perfectly with the tree and the sentiment!
The background of the card was created the same as the first card. This time for the tree, I stamped the "joy" tree image from the Christmas Tree Stamp Set with Peeled Paint and Forest Moss Distress Oxide Inks before die cutting the pop up with the Pull-tab Pop Up Tree dies. The rest of the sentiments was stamped with Forest Moss Distress Oxide Ink, the tree was assembled according to the video tutorial and adhered to the background as shown. A gold glitter cardstock star adorns the top of the tree and Nuvo Crystal Drops in Red Berry finish off the tree!
The kid and star images from the Yippee Stamp Set were stamped on smooth white cardstock with Intense Black Ink, colored in with Copic Markers, and die cut with the coordinating dies before being adhered behind and on the tree as shown to complete the scene. The stars were finished with Nuvo Crystal Drops in White Blizzard and Nuvo Crystal Drops in Gloss White were added to the "sky" to add additional "falling snow".
I hope this interactive pop up tree cards have inspired you to try your own Christmas pop up tree cards! Have a great day!
