Pop Up Ornament

front1front whole


Hi All! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and is looking forward to Christmas! I know I am! This adorable pop-up ornament is a die-line made by my good friend Cathy Martin over at Snip Tuck Design. She is a fabulous up and coming electronic die cut designer. Currently she sells through her own blog and Etsy. You can buy this and some other fabulous die cuts there.

The pop-up ornament is cut using my Pazzles Inspiration. I cut it out of a medium weight chipboard and then I cut it again on a piece of patterned paper. I cut the patterned paper so that each part of the ornament would cut as a separate piece to make it easier for decorating.

The “Merry Christmas” is from the Cricut cartridge Wild Card. I put it through my Xyron 250 upside down. Then I generously sprinkled it with Martha Stewart fine glitter. Then back through the Xyron an the back side of the die cut to stick it to the ornament.

I added misc. embellishments: snowflake buttons, ribbon, tulle, bells, glitter pen, Cat’s Eye blue chalk ink to spice it up.

Thanks for looking…and don’t forget to check out Cathy at Snip Tuck Design.
