I could not find my Christmas cardstock not that I had that much of it to begin wish so I used digital pattern paper from a cajoline collection. The colors looked red in my software but when I printed it was a different story. My lighting is terrible in my craft room. I also thought I had a red color paper to cut out the poinsettia but that was not the case. I used my yellow glaze pen to make a center in the poinsettia.
I figured out how to move the tree down so that I could add a star on top. It took me some doing but after releasing compound path I was able to copy the tree so that I could change fold lines into solid lines. Then it took me tracing that tree so that I could separate the pieces.I wanted to emboss just the tree part not the whole panel. I must have accidentally resized the tree when I moved it down as my embossed pieces were smaller. I embossed using a retired Sizzix ornament folder. After embossing I rubbed a light amount of Inka Gold over the tree strips. It doesn't really show in the photo. Do you think it would be too much if I added presents on both sides like the card in the book? Or would you leave it like this and maybe add a sentiment on the right hand side?
I'm thinking next time I make this card I might emboss some pattern paper. Since this card goes together so quickly and is not bulky I thought it might be fun to make some for the Caring Hearts Card Drive. Do you like to make popup cards?
Well tomorrow is another altered card challenge. Once again I'm totally clueless about what it might be. Thank you for stopping by and Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
