Pop Up Presents

Hi All! I made this card a couple weeks back for a Christmas themed swap. The focal point of the card is what is inside, which always leaves me scratching my head on what to put on the outside. I figured you couldn't go wrong with a glittered garland on a Christmas tree.
The inside has three stacked pop up presents. The presents are fairly easy to cut out when you have the measurements--I marked up the back of the card where to cut and where to score. Those presents are a bit tricky to wrap though. You've got to get the pieces of designer paper lined up just right and then carefully wrap the ribbon around.  The top present gets the teenest little bow so it isn't too bulky inside the card.
I'm thinking this design would make a fun birthday card as well.

The Fine Print: Tree stamp by Copper Leaf Creations, inside greeting by Hero Arts, designer paper, ribbon, and holly cardbase from my stash.

Really fun card, I can imagine the trouble it was to tie that very small bow! Great job!

So fun & festive! I can't imagine making a card like this--good for you! By the way, your comment about the PO grinding the coffee beans on my card gave me a good chuckle!
