La-La Land Crafts Inspiration Friday - Christmas in July

Good morning! Well we're almost into the last week of July and that can only mean one thing - Christmas crafting begins in earnest. (Seriously??!!) Seeing as I was being thrust into the spirit of things I decided to make my first family Christmas card. This one will most likely go to my sister-in-law who absolutely loves handmade items. 

It is a pop-up box card and features Paper Dolls Marci (Christmas Elf) and these Dies - Pretty Poinsettia, Open Leaf Flourish, October Club kit

This was my first attempt at a pop up box card and while it was quite easy to make, it took a long time and there were a few instances where really could have done with a 3rd hand. Love how it turned out though - so much so that I've started another one :D Look these up on Pinterest, there are some pretty amazing ones. 

Marci is coloured up with Copic Markers
Skin - E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair - E23, E25, E27
Dress - G20, G21, G24, G28. E23, E25, E27
Hat/Tights - R07, R09, R22, R24. C1, C3 

Other products used:

Papers - Graphic 45 
Baker's Twine
