I finally got my Christmas cards done (yay me 50 of them) so I finally get to play with this fun Photo Collage Pop up die set (early Christmas present 🙂 I also had to make a card for this week’s Crazy4Challenges challenge. This week’s challenge was to use my favourite Christmas stamp set and or Christmas die set to create a Christmas card. Hhmmmm a favorite was so hard to pick. I have always loved snowflake stamps and over the last 13ish years I have accumulated a few so I picked out one that was a little larger than the rest and went with it, and I also thought snowflakes would work well on the pop-up mechanism, so this is the card I came up with.
the magic is in the motion, if you would like to see this card in action please check out my Facebook page. Feel free to join if you would like to share your own crafty creations.

All the cardstock used for this card is from Stampin Up and the colours are listed below. The mechanism used is the Photo Collage Pop-Up from Karen Burniston, and it is crazy amazing. please watch her VIDEO on how to assemble the mechanism as there is no way I can explain with photos, I swapped out the photos for snowflakes.
I thought about adding some of the snowflake sequins and some of the itty bitty sequins on the inside the same that I did on the front, but I thought that I had already gotten pretty lucky with the inside folding as well as it did and I didn’t want to risk creating a catch point and having something that the snowflakes could get caught on.
