Ornament Pop Up card

Hi everyone, today I'm the designer for A Card A Day Blog and I'm continuing with the theme Christmas Ornaments. I used the Mojo Monday Sketch # 267 for the layout of my card.

For today's card I made an Ornament pop up card.  I started with my the ornament punch and punched 8 of them out of the Fliratious Designer Paper.  I used my Score Board and scored seven of them down the center.  I lined up the top of the ornament with the top of my scoring board and made sure the point of the ornament was in the center of a scoring line then scored.  I then folded each ornament and glued them together. I then traced around the eighth ornament on a piece of Old Olive card stock and cut around it leaving a little bit of border.  I glued this eighth piece to the green card stock and attached my pop up pieces. 

I lined everything up on my card then I stamped my sentiment onto the cream card stock.  I kept the inside pretty simple on this one so that I have more room to write.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Be sure to check back tomorrow to see what Christine Patton from Creative Genie-ous has to inspire you.

I'm entering this in Mojo Monday #267.

Cute card, the paper is a fun paper too. The legal pad cover from yesterday is really cute too. Good use of paper with doing both projects
