Hi, I have made the "Let it Snow" popup Christmas card from Dreaming Tree. I love popup cards so this appealed to me. This set is also a little different as Kyle McDonald has used 'slice form technology' to create the base from which the tree pops up. I think this is an awesome set and would recommend purchasing it for your Christmas Cards. The tree is an intricate image which cut beautifully on the Cricut Explore. The base to make it pop up is not as complex as it first seems and Leo of Dreaming Tree has a wonderful video on the site showing how to put it together. You can purchase this set here.

I have added the snowflakes from the extras folder and used Perfect Pearls to shimmer the snowflakes and bits on the tree.
Look at that sparkle.






The card turned out really well and I was pleased with it.




The base was a challenge for me. at first I put it together no problem then thought how smart I was till I tried to put it together a second time. I watched Leo's video so many times thinking I am sure I can do this. Well for those of you who skipped the video I have tried to put some pics up below.



This is the 4 pieces that cut to form the base of the tree. Note that there are 2 lots of 2 pieces.  The cuts are positioned such that 2 pieces have the first cut up from the bottom and 2 pieces have the first cut down from the top.
holding the tab end I put the 2 pieces together so the tabs were next to each other then I did this again with the other 2 pieces.

pic of the 2 pieces with tabs interlocked

When you have the 2 sets interlocked then slot together the pointed ends so the 4 pieces for a square.

This square should squish flat and open again see pics below.



when the square is squished you should see the tabs like this. These are the tabs that will go into the slots on the inner card

Once you have the 4 pieces attached into a square place the tree pieces together and look at which side has the up slots and which the down slots. match these to fit into the square and your tree will stand. when the tabs are placed and glued into the slots on the inner card the tree will pop up when opened.

 I had heaps of fun do this and the other cards in the bundle. Give them a go. Start making your Christmas cards early so there is no last minute rush. Where to get them here at Dreaming Tree.
