I love making these 3D pop-up cards and they are so simple to make. For this card, I stamped three of the same ornament image from the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set and then cut the images out with the matching Holiday Ornaments Framelit. After folding each image in half vertically, I adhered the inner edged together and then glued the ornament to the card.
The card folds flat for mailing and then can be puffed up again after removing from the envelope. I like to include a little note telling the recipient that they are a pop-up card and to fold the edges up after opening.
I made a similar card a couple of years ago using the Ornament Punch (119847) and lots of punches. See it here.
I already had my Cherry Cobbler ink and paper out so I decided to add the new In Color Primrose Petals to the card based on the colours in the printed paper.
The greeting is from More Merry Messages. This might just be the best Christmas greeting set ever! I did a bunch of Christmas stamping this week getting ready for more blog posts and used this set on every card. There is a size and sentiment for almost project.

There are lots of fun new accessories in the Holiday Catalogue including the Designer Ribbon Sliders. I used just an inch or so of ribbon threaded through the slide as an accent. There was so much going on with this card and the Snow Festival Designer Series Paper print that I used that I thought a length of ribbon would be too much.
