Santa's on his way... by special request!You will need

At the end of my last post I asked if anyone would like to see a step by step blog featuring any of the cards from Tim Holtz' Christmas collection as featured on Hochanda. So this one is for Claire and Yvonne... enjoy!

After assembling my three shades of grey I die-cut all the elements and marked out the pop-up centre (see template below). Next, I cut and creased the pop-up centre and used my Corner Chomper to round off the corners before matting into the white base card. I applied a couple of postmark stamps using grey ink and attached the stamped sentiment using a stapler.

When creating pop-ups always cut vertically and crease horizontally. Once that is done carefully fold out the tabs and reverse the card to hide the pen/pencil marks.

A grey moon and a smattering of gems later and it's the night before Christmas!

Thanks for stopping by, See you all again soon.
