Christmas Pop-Up Card

 Good morning everyone.
Today I'll show you one of the cards I've made this last week.
(I was up early, early taking pictures, though it's a day off from work - in fact I'm not going to work untill Tuesday afternoon ;)
On this card I made the inside first, then it fell into my mind that I had to make a frontside to the card as well - but how should I make it, with so much going on inside the card??!?
I used quite some time thinking, trying and moving papers and images around, but felt everything was too messy, too noisy... I needed I calm and simple front! 
Then, on Wednesday, the sketch at Midweek Magnolias came, and everything fell into it's place. I knew which papers, image, embellishments, everything I'd use for the front was clear to me! Except the fact that I hadn't received the ribbon and charms yet...
Luckily it fell into my mailbox Thursday! So while my boyfriend installed the new dishwasher (a terrible week without it!!!), I finished this card :)
Further down you can find the list of materials I used for the card, so now I'll just show a few pictures of it:

  1. Firstly any week without a dishwasher is a terrible week!
    There is nothing worse when you are pushing papers around trying to figure it out but what you have come up with using, even being able to envision the charms and ribbons (thankfully they came) is just perfect.
    The inside of this card is just beautiful so much detail and so pretty. Well done on stepping up to our pop-up card challenge.

  2. I'm so glad that you didn't get a nasty case of dishpan hands without your dishwasher Lisbeth! WOW I just love the gorgeous scene you've created with your pop up elements :)There's nothing more frustrating than when the pieces just won't come together for you.. but in the end your card front turned out beautifully. An amazing card.
