Dustin Pike/Pop 'n Cuts Holiday Cards

These two interactive 3D cards were made with the Pop 'n Cuts Sizzix A2 Card die, by Karen Burniston. I used the Magnetic Insert Die - Label Window, 3-D along with coordinating Butterflies & Labels die (to cut the background from white glitter paper). The main images (another is shown further below) are from Dustin Pike. I colored the images on a pearl paper using Aquarell watercolor pencils for a whimsical look, then fussy cut around them. The images look really nice in person but sadly the pearl does not show up at all in the photos (the shine made some of the colors a bit more washed out - especially on the penguin). The glitter paper (Recollections, from Michaels) also doesn't look nearly as beautiful in the photos as it does in person; it's super sparkly.

Another coordinating die, Edge & Scroll, was used to cut the left side piece (green) and a back piece. These help fill in the gap created from the pop up part of the card. I created a couple embellishments with a button and ribbon, a piece of Christmas Mint Trendy Twine, glitter paper on black card stock and a few enamel dots that I made with a Viva Decor Pearl Pen in red.

Here is a photo of the card when opened. Now you can see the back edge piece behind the "hugs & kisses." I wrapped twine around the right side of the card then added the "Merry Christmas" circle with dimensional tape. The circle sentiment was from a full sheet (8.5 x 11 in.) that I created in Photoshop (text on a circle path), printed on card stock, then used my Silhouette Cameo to cut them out. I stamped a bow in the center and watercolored it. My EK Success punch was used for the black scalloped circle.

Here is a close up of the inside.

I made the card pictured below at the same time, just using a different image and switching up the embellishments a bit.

The "Happy Holidays" sentiment circle was created in Photoshop along with the "Merry Christmas," as described above.
