Great blog hop. Can't wait to get into the craft room and try some of these projects myself. Thanks for all the inspiration and instructions. Vicki gets to take home the fabulous Christmas Card Kit from CC&M!! If you don't hear from us in the next 24hrs, please contact us to give us your information! Congratulations & Happy Card Making!!
Becky here today to share the fun little Standing Pop-up Card from Creative Cuts & More with you all!
I really don't make a lot of cards, but this one was just too fun to pass up! 

At first glance, it seems a rather ordinary, if not a strange looking card. But in reality, it's a super clever card that opens up to a little box with a tag/card standing in the middle - a nice little surprise in the mail for someone!
I ordered the whole she-bang in Kraft & Cream (it comes with the base & a layered card for the center piece) & Glimmer painted the base & the larger layer in green; cut some notches out of the top to look like a shipping tag; punched a hole & added the ribbon.
I attached a simple vintage image to the cream layer, inked the edges in green & attached it to the little "standing" tabs on the inside of the box through the opening in the top of the box with some Tacky Tape.
It's so cool how it fits in the envelope flat & then the recipient just pulls gently on the tag to make it pop open!
I stamped a little Christmas saying on the front of the box & then "jeweled" the edges with some "Candy Cane Red" Stickles!
I love how it's like a little table decoration to display!! 
It would also make really fun place cards at a Holiday table too! 
Or, how about making the layer on the tag a little pocket to put a gift card in?!
What fun!!

That's it for me today!
Happy Holidays to y'all!
