A shout out and a big thank you to Mary Fish – my upline,  for giving me the chance to be a guest blogger on her Stampin' Pretty blog today!  Thank you Mary!  And, welcome to those of you who have arrived here from Mary's blog.  Although my card today may look complicated, the Card Base Pop 'n Cuts Die does the heavy lifting.  A strategic cut with the Deco Label Framelits, and the card is well on its way.  Take a peek and you will see what I am talking about.

Flying Easel Card-001

The inspiration for this card came from a video that I watched by the designer of the Pop 'n Cuts Die, Karen Burniston.  Although her card was for Halloween, I changed it up to create a Christmas card.  Would you like to watch the video?  Here's the You Tube link.

My husband definitely wondered what I was up to when I asked him for some fishing line.  He kinda gave me a funny look when I

told him that I needed to hang some snowflakes!

The card looks considerably different when it is closed.
