Pop Up Christmas Card Tutorial

Afternoon hope you are having a good weekend, I have been busy making nappy cake will get them on the blog later this week,It was my turn to do the Tutorial for the
crafty bloggers network.
I have seen this shape card on a few blogs lately so here is my take on it.


12x12 card stock mine is  from The Christmas glitter stack from DCWV
Spellbinders dies
Clear stamps from Papermainia
Glitter, Gems & Card candy

Cut your 12x12 card down to 6x12,
then score at 1.5",3",4.5",7.5",9",and 10.5"

When folded it should look like this.

With the other piece of 12x6 card stock cut a rectangle 5x7"
I used a large spellbinders die but can bee done by hand.
Then tape you 5x7" rectangle and stick it to the bottom of the12x6".
Now add the ribbon this goes between the 1st & 2nd fold.
Then stick the 2 ends together.

It should now stand up like this,
you can now add your image and embellishments, your card will fold flat for posting.
