Gingerbread Pop Up Christmas Card

Here is a pop up card I created using Creative Kuts Gingerbread Pop up Christmas Card that we purchased a couple months ago from Cheryl Walton aka Scrappinmini.



Paper used from my personal stash of card stock and design paper accumulated over the years.

The inside of the pop up card was created with the software:  Popup Card Studio where I used the shadow of the Gingerbread House to place on the center of the card and inserted the tabs where needed.; save the file in svg format, and that loaded into my Make the Cut software and resized all the pieces to fit the pop up piece  A lot of work but I enjoyed it.

The small Gingerbread men were downloaded from the Make the Cut gallery and than I used the Gingerbread Men and candy and created a border to place on the top of the layered mat.  Created more candy for decorative embellishments

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me today in rainy Alabama.  God bless and have a blessed day.

OCTOBER challenge-use a little or lot of ORANGE

Hello from Carolyn, a DT member of Christmas Cards All Year 'Round with the October 1st card challenge (today, LOL) 

First of all, I apologize for being MIA the last 2 months.  I spent 2 stays in different hospitals to find a diagnosis for my jaundice which indicated a Live problem (first time ever) and being treated it for now.  Plus my sister was at the Vascular Clinic in Huntsville to clean out a blocked artery and some plaque as well.

Plus I am preparing to move into a Senior Community Apt in a lake town here in Alabama; and busy with getting things set up for the apt, and packing all my belongings.

Now to the todays project:


 This is a svg file that I found somewhere on a blog or Facebook or the Internet that was free. Decided that since my time was short that I would just use a svg cut file.  The card base is the original cut file and I done a Internal Offset making it smaller and placed on the white base.  I cut all pieces with my Silhouette Cameo and found that if I have the correct cutting specs it will cut correctly!

The buckle on Santas' belt is a bit of ORANGE to go with the this months challenge theme.  Using picmonkey.com for photo editing I inserted a orange trim under the white piece (all done thru editing.)



Included with this svg cut file is a gift tag using Santas' suite and belt with a ORANGE buckle.  Little secret:  the To: and From: was inserted with picmonkey editing program, since my stamp is packed away.
