I finished my Christmas list!! Yay! Weight lifted off my shoulders.
Really quick I wanted to share with you all what I'm getting my sister, it's actually pretty cool. A few years ago she wrote a massive research paper on the origin of fairy tales. With her final draft she had to have a visual presentation so she decided to make a pop up book. When she trying to figure out how to make one she came upon these two illustrators of collectible pop up books. Now, every birthday or Christmas that's what she wants.
Here is a website where you can see all the books.
Last year I got her Alice in Wonderland
This year she wants the Sharks one. (You have to understand, Shark Week is her favorite week of the year).
I've been working on my Christmas cards a lot lately. I've had this idea in mind ever since I saw this digi from The Paper Shelter and actually I colored her a few weeks ago. Then, I saw one of Mary's videos (from Cardz TV) about doing a step card. I really haven't ventured into different folds yet but I thought this would be the perfect fold for the card I had in mind.
When you 'Peek' behind her you see the tree with the presents that just look oh so tempting to unwrap!
The front view
And, the side view
For this card I used:
A Little Bit Grumpy from The Paper Shelter.
She is colored with ProMarkers for her hair and Copics for everything else.
The Christmas tree is from Create a Critter 2.
The presents are a Fiskars punch.
The green pattern is Cloud 9 Designs, the red glitter paper and the white card and stamp mat are DCWV, and the other solids are from my scraps.
The sentiment is K Andrew Designs stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
The glitter glues are Recollections 'stickles.'
