Free Standing Pop-Up Christmas Pup
Today members of the Angels Landing Design Team are sharing cards of all kinds! I love this adorable little pup from Ho Ho Hollydays and thought he would look precious on a free standing pop-up card since he is sitting up so sweetly!
I created this card for a friend who loves displaying her cards on her kitchen windowsill. This design is absolutely perfect for that!!
If you have never made a free standing pop-up card, you should give it a try! It really is a simple construction, and it folds flat to fit in an envelope for mailing.
To create this card, I used the wonderful tutorial written by Mary Jo Albright and shared in the resource section of Splitcoaststampers. It's easy to follow with plenty of great step by step photos.
The pup was printed on white Georgia Pacific card stock and colored with Copic markers. I printed him again on BasicGrey designer paper so I could paper piece his Christmas hat. To dress him up for the holidays, I added Fantasy Snow by Delta to the cuff and ball of the hat and a red rhinestone to the holly.
