Dasher the Deer in a Pop -up box

Hi Everyone

I hope you are enjoying the slight change in the weather. My poor garden has been crying out for the rain, personally I hope we see a bit more sun.

Today I am sharing my latest Design team post for Creative Studios by Sam Poole. I have never made a pop-up box card before and I was pleasantly pleased with how this one turned out. There are lots of online tutorials for how to create one of these I choose one that was easy to follow and used that.

There is lots of matting and layering to do on all the side panels. I used up lots of fiddly little bits of card that had been laying around for a while in my crafty stash. All the stamps I used: the stars, the trees and the Merry Christmas are all part of Sam's new range of Christmas stamps.

This is the detail on two of the side panels.

This show the slats that hold everything in place. I put the snowflakes (that had been cut with Spellbinder dies) onto acetate to hold them in place. I used a very strong wet glue and I left it to dry over night. 

Here is Dasher he was coloured by Promakers. I did reinforce his antlers with some card behind them.

 Finally this is the card folded isn't it brilliant that they fold flat. Next time I will make sure my snowflakes don't extend outside the folded box as this will make it easier to put in an envelope. Also I wouldn't score the back panel so that it makes a better backdrop for the card.

Thank you for looking. 

Hugs Jackie
