I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  Life is running at top speed here at the moment, I’ve got several projects and deadlines all running at once and I can’t share yet…….so my time for crafting I can share has been almost non existant!

Christmas has certainly arrived in our house, I am busy designing and finalising a huge number of Christmas projects for my wonderful Stampin’ Up! customers, my craft stores and of course the brilliant Making Cards magazine too!  Publishing seems to be an alternate universe you work so far ahead!!!  But I adore Christmas so Ho Ho Ho !!!!! ( Do expect to see some Christmas cards this week!)

So onto my card for today, my fantastic team of Inspiring Inkees have set up a challenge blog and I am soooooooo behind with completing the challenges so this is my first card to get caught up. This is for Challenge No 4 here.


When my daughter saw the front of this card, it was “well that’s rubbish Mum” no holding back that’s my wonderful Kim!  I do agree though, quite plain but it’s a card for a man and I like to have the element of surprise !


This is the inside.


A side view for the mechanics!

Now I am trying a new way of detailing out all the products I have used to make it easy for you my dear readers, Please let me know what you think, is this easier?

Stamps : In the Stars
Inks: Red Red, Brilliant Blue
Cardstock: Real Red, Brilliant Blue, Whisper White
Accessories: Star Punch, Silver Brads

The most important thing to remember with this type of pop-up is to use 2 layers of cardstock.  Paper for the inner layer will not have the strength to hold up the pop-up.

Happy Stampin’
