My first ever pop-up card!

And boy, did I fall in love with this technique.  It was so easy with the tutorial from Split Coast Stampers site, and this was created by my 7 year-old nephew Noah.  Here's the story: a couple of weeks ago, he came to me and said, "Aunt Kim, I was wondering if maybe one day we could spend time together and you could help me make Christmas cards with your machine for everyone in the family."  WELL, how cute is that??  He quickly ran off all of the themes he wanted, and my mind started going.  Once he said gingerbread house for one, I knew it was time to try a pop-up card.

For this, I used a MTC and a My Scrap Chick set called North Pole, and it is so adorable!  I did use Jolly Holidays for the gingerbread man, simply because it was a simple cut.  I added a few stickles to him, pop dotted some elements of the house. and did the pop-up portion of the card.  My nephew did everything else.  he picked out all of the colors, the papers, the layout, the ribbon, and the saying!  He wanted me to write inside, "Run, run as fast as you can, you can't catch me, I'm the gingerbread man."  So that is exactly what I wrote, and you should have seen his face when it was all done.  Well, actually, you can see it below!  Lol.  Of course, I wasin charge of the Cricut and the glue, but I was so impressed with what he came up with.  Sunday we are doing a few more, so stay tuned.  Thanks for visiting today!


  1. Kim, this card turned out adorable and your nephew looks so proud! He did a great job. I am not sure if you go to svgcuts.com or not but they have some really cute pop-up card sets. Some of them have pop-up words like happy birthday, merry christmas, etc. And I love your blog look, so cute. Mine is still fall - lol! I really need to change it.

  2. What a great team you two make!! It is nice to see a little man getting in to crafting. Your card turned out sooooo adorable. Thanks for sharing!
