Hi Friend!

Pop-Up and Die Cut Cards from OCC

I'm really, really loving the Holiday Card Workshop from Last week was crazy busy with my husband traveling, and all my students turning in major papers that needed grading, and trying to prepare for a craft show over the weekend, but I've been sneaking in cards as often as possible.

I love the cards I've made so much I'm submitting them for several challenges:

  • Simon Says Stamp, Monday Challenge

  • Try it On Tuesday

  • ABC Christmas Challenge

  • A Place to Start

Pop-Up Hexigon

Card Size: A2

The focal piece is made from three separate hexagon die cuts with some fancy folding. I had to adapt the technique from class but I love how it turned out!


A Happy Holiday Card

Card Size: A2

As long as the snowflakes are only on the card, I LOVE them.


Everyday Tools

I've been making cards for over ten years and there are a few things that get used on a daily basis. They make cardmaking more joyful for me. I hope this list is helpful for you. Some items are listed with an affiliate link which offers me a small commission at no cost to you, while others are linked here just because I think these products are the best!

Thanks for coming! I hope you enjoyed today's project!

I just love your pop-up card! Both cards are beautifully executed and your design element choices are spot on! I also love the richness of that blue cardstock!
